WebUI Login not working

Recommended Posts


./btsync --dump-sample-config > sync.conf

Then used Nano to edit, tried "mypwd"}, that just gave me that same error:

Error while parsing config file: Unexpected end of config file (are you missing '}') ?

any ideas? I noticed someone sent previous person a non tabbed version that worked, possible get re up to pastebin?

I used nano through terminal so that shouldn't be the problem....:/

ran it as a .conf and .json neither work with or without the comma.

get this error in a code checker.

Parse error on line 3:
...ening_port": 0, //0-randomizeport/*s
Expecting 'STRING'

Json is a very poor syntax for config files, you've probably missed a comma.

I'd guess you code checker doesn't understand comments.

We need to see the whole file to fix it. You can/should hide the keys.
