Hi,

 

I'm trying to set up BTsync on my seedbox, I have been following this guide https://www.feralhosting.com/faq/view?question=224 

 

when i attempt this command ~/btsync/./btsync --config ~/btsync/sync.conf

 

Error while parsing config file: parse error: after key and value, inside map, I expect ',' or '}'

          ble credentials check */    "webui" :   {     "listen" : "0.
                              (right here) ------^
 
Here is my config file minus username, password and port
{   "device_name": "My Sync Device",  "listening_port" : 0,                       // 0 - randomize port  /* storage_path dir contains auxilliary app files   if no storage_path field: .sync dir created in the directory    where binary is located.   otherwise user-defined directory will be used */// "storage_path" : "/media/diskid/home/user/btsync/.sync",// uncomment next line if you want to set location of pid file  "pid_file" : "btsync/btsync.pid",  "check_for_updates" : true,   "use_upnp" : true,                              // use UPnP for port mapping/* limits in kB/s   0 - no limit*/  "download_limit" : 0,                         "upload_limit" : 0 /* remove "listen" field to disable WebUI   remove "login" and "password" fields to disable credentials check*/   "webui" :  {    "listen" : "0.0.0.0:xxxx",          "login" : "myusername",    "password" : "mypassword"             },/* !!! if you set shared folders in config file WebUI will be DISABLED !!!   shared directories specified in config file   override the folders previously added from WebUI.*//*  ,  "shared_folders" :  [    {//  use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret      "secret" : "MY_SECRET_1",                   // * required field      "dir" : "/home/user/bittorrent/sync_test", // * required field//  use relay server when direct connection fails      "use_relay_server" : false,      "use_tracker" : false,      "use_dht" : true,      "search_lan" : false,//  enable sync trash to store files deleted on remote devices      "use_sync_trash" : true,//  specify hosts to attempt connection without additional search           "known_hosts" :      [        "192.168.1.2:44444"      ]    }  ]*/// Advanced preferences can be added to config file.// Info is available in BitTorrent Sync User Guide.}

mrhidley,

 

Remove the last comma: 

  "webui" :  {    "listen" : "0.0.0.0:xxxx",          "login" : "myusername",    "password" : "mypassword"             },

 

Thanks, I've just tried that, unfortunately i'm still getting the same error.  :/

Sorry, didn't notice at first, also, add a comma here: 

"download_limit" : 0,                         "upload_limit" : 0,

So, remove the comma as suggested in my first reply and add this one. It worked on my machine.
