  1. Hi Helen, Thanks for your reply. The first time I edited the config file, I just rebooted the rspi in the hopes that sync would launch on reboot with the right config. That did not happen, but I found that stoping the service and launching it manually would allow me to add the folders in my disk. Of course, launching the service manually does not fit the purpose. Here's the content of the config file: cat /etc/resilio-sync/config.json { "storage_path" : "/var/lib/resilio-sync/", "pid_file" : "/var/run/resilio-sync/sync.pid", "directory_root" : "/media/pi/HDD", "webui" : { "listen" : "MYip:8888" } } And the running processes. ps -ef | grep rslsync rslsync 652 1 0 15:16 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/rslsync --config /etc/resilio-sync/config.json pi 1474 754 1 15:18 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/rslsync --config /home/pi/.config/resilio-sync/config.json pi 1477 1184 0 15:18 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto rslsync Should there be two instances of rslsync running under two different users???
  2. I have been trying to run resilio-sync as a personal backup cloud for my phone for a few weeks, using a raspberry pi 2 and an external HDD. I've installed following the instructions here: https://www.resilio.com/blog/official-linux-packages-for-sync-now-available and made sure I enabled automatic startup with: sudo systemctl enable resilio-sync no problems so far, until I try to acess the webgui and setup my folders in the HDD (permission error) So I edited the file in /etc/resilio-sync/config.json and added the line "directory_root" : "/pathtodrive", I stopped the service, and used the config file with: sudo rslsync --config /etc/resilio-sync/config.json At that time everything looks fine and I can add my folders without any problem. Unfortunately, whenever I reboot the pi, or it gets powered down, I always need to stop the service and point it to the config file on reboot, because the configurations get "lost" somehow. My directory_root folder disappers from the preferences in the webgui, and the folders I setup are not longer there. Shouldn't my configurations be used everytime the service starts? Why do I always have to configure sync manually? I think I'm missing something.
