dpkg-reconfigure not working

Recommended Posts

I've installed btsync on an Ubuntu 14.04 headless server following the Debian-based instructions here:

I have not yet created a btsync user, working within root at the moment.  I tried to dpkg-reconfigure btsync but the only outcome of that command is that btsync starts:

dpkg-reconfigure btsync
No /usr/bin/btsync found running; none killed.
Starting Bittorrent Sync

This is what I currently have in /etc/btsync

drwxr-xr-x   3 root root  4096 Feb 29 14:55 ./
drwxr-xr-x 111 root root 12288 Feb 29 14:26 ../
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   207 Feb 29 15:07 config.json
-rwxrwxr-x   1 root root   222 Feb 23 08:01*
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   226 Feb 29 15:08 user_config.json

This command has allowed me to connect to the GUI (because it's by default listening to, but it's a temporary fix.

btsync --nodaemon --webui.listen

I would like to figure out how to actually configure it correctly, what am I doing wrong?

I wonder how you installed the package without creating btsync user? I looks like it's not registered. check with "sudo service btsync status"
