  1. I was facing this issue since few months. Frequently, All my resilio settings were lost and I used some really undesirable workarounds till now. Today I found a perfect solution which works everytime. The Setup: System: Centos 6.6 x86_64 wget https://download-cdn.resilio.com/stable/linux-x64/resilio-sync_x64.tar.gz cd /home/user/bin tar -xf ../resilio-sync_x64.tar.gz ./rslsync Running above commands, I could access the webUI and did all the settings (setting up username and password etc.). After 2 days I logged in to the same machine and ./bin/rslsync The service started. I accessed the webUI and for my surprise, I was asked the username, password and re-enter password which was asked 2 days ago, It looked like all the settings were lost. Same issue while using crontab. Solution: I noticed a .sync directory inside /home/user/bin/ Copied the directory inside the home directory cp -r /home/user/bin/.sync /home/user/bin Killed resilio sync and restarted it. Everything works fine now. Is it a bug? A NO from me. Reason: When you run the rslsync for the first time, The .sync directory which stores all the information about sync is created in the Current Working Directory. While running rslsync, You need to be in the directory which was your pwd while you first ran rslsync Let's say, You are running resilio for the very first time. rslsync binary is stored in /home/user/bin/ , And you did cd /home/Downloads /home/user/bin/rslsync resilio will start and .sync directory will be created in your pwd ie. /home/user/Downloads Next time, If you are in your home directory and you do /home/user/bin/rslsync Resilio will start but settings will be lost. But, cd /home/user/Downloads /home/user/bin/rslsync will work This is troublesome if you only have 1 resilio setup. So make sure you run rslsync in your home directory initially. On the other side, If you want to have multiple resilio setups on the same machine and that too with the same user, This "so called bug" is awesome. You can have multiple different shares with different credentials and different setups. Though only 1 will be running at a time. Hope this helped. Thanks
