Howto Repair My Broken Btsync Installation

Recommended Posts

Today I rebooted the Raspberry BTSync was running on. After that BTSync stops working. It seems to be the bug that's already known: http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/31347-encrypted-node-btsync-crash/

 

To try to solve this issue, I several times removed, reinstalled and reconfigured BTSync. The last time I tried that, I deleted the btsync file in /etc/init.d (yes I'm very stupid to rm a file instead of moving or renaming it....). After that I'm unable to get that file back. So I'm unable to start BTSync. When I try to start the service (sudo service btsync start) it fails with the message "btsync: unrecognized service" (of course).

 

How can I solve this? An apt-get install --reinstall BTSync doesn't solve my issue.

 

Unfortunately I'm a very beginner on the Linux platform.

 

What can I do to get my BTSync running again?

Depends, if you download btsync from the site you are only provided with a binary which should be started manually, or you can indeed create an init.d script (startup script).
 You can find one here too: https://gist.github.com/5398362.git

 

Or use btsync from an unofficial repository for example; http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/18974-debian-and-ubuntu-server-unofficial-packages-for-bittorrent-sync/
