Hello, thanks all for reply.
So I managed to find the file " .rtorrent.rc " but for some reason I am unable to change the file permission on it so it updates. I was able to edit the directory but when it comes to transferring it back to the seedbox an error message is displayed " set attrs for /home/[user]/.rtorrent.rc: permission denied "
I transferred the file using file zilla.
Would I need to login as Root using Putty and change the persmission using it? If so, how can I do it for a specific user?
