Transmission daemon and error 409 on Debian

Let me start this new blog with a tip for those using Transmission daemon on Debian stable.

For some reason, following a recent system update, I could not access the Transmission daemon anymore. I was getting a "409: Conflict" error.

I previously had this Apache config for accessing the Transmission daemon:

ProxyPass /transmission/ http://localhost:9091/
ProxyPassReverse /transmission/ http://localhost:9091/

I had to change this to the following configuration, to make it work:

ProxyPass /transmission http://localhost:9091/transmission
ProxyPassReverse /transmission http://localhost:9091/transmission

Notice the absence of trailing slashes; everyone on the web advises against them in the case of Transmission. I can now access the web UI with https://myserver/transmission/web/.
