[Solved] Btsync On Sinology Dsm 412+ Forgot Password For Webui - Best Approach

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

i forgot the password to enter the webgui for bittorrent sync on my synology dsm 412+ 

running version for dsm: 5.0-4528 and bittorrent version: 1.4.83-8

 

any suggestions how to approach? is there a way to overwrite the password. Or installing everything new.

 

Many thanks,

boxxxy

Check your Sync config file - you'll find the Web UI username/password there, and can reset (or remove them) accordingly

hoi, and thanks for your quick request.

 

any idea how to find the sync conf file on a synology? :)

 

It depends what package of Sync you've installed. It could be:

 

/usr/local/btsync/var/sync.conf

 

...or if you've installed the SynoCommunity builds, it could be:

 

/volume1/@appstore/btsync/var/sync.conf

Try the following (based on bigjohnx's instructions here)

1. Go to Synology control panel to enable SSH if not enabled yet

2. Use putty (windows) / ssh (osx/linux) to login your NAS with user root and admin password

3. After enter ssh, type the command "su btsync"

4. Type the command "vi sync.conf" to edit the file

5. Type "ZZ" to save the file
