I installed the latest server packages on ubuntu last night. So far I am impressed. I didn't read the whole thread, so this might have already been covered, but it doesn't look like you can define your shared folders in your user's config file and also have the web gui running at the same time? I could only get the webgui to work when I commented the shared folders definition out even though the shared folder definition was fine (i.e. the shared folders were working/syncing fine).
