Help Upgrading Resilio in Ubuntu Server 14

Recommended Posts

Well, Im trying to follow this guide:

Everything ok, but the problem is that i cannot see the gui in the explorer.

When i enter this command

sudo service resilio-sync start 

It says

Starting Resilio Sync

But nothings happen, ok, trying to fix it, i did a

apt-get purge resilio-sync

to try to do a fresh install of it, but the point now is, THERE IS NO WIZARD like in btsync, and now Im not able to configure the program, where must i put the config file??

I read here:


that the file is in:



So I configure again my Config File:

   "device_name": "My Seedbox",
// "listening_port" : 0, // 0 - randomize port

/* storage_path dir contains auxilliary app files if no storage_path field: .sync dir created in current working directory */
// "storage_path" : "/home/user/.sync",

/* set location of pid file */
// "pid_file" : "/var/run/btsync/",

/* use UPnP for port mapping */
  "use_upnp" : true,

/* limits in kB/s. 0 - no limit */
  "download_limit" : 0,
  "upload_limit" : 0,

/* proxy configuration */
// "proxy_type" : "socks4", // Valid types: "socks4", "socks5", "http_connect". Any other value means no proxy
// "proxy_addr" : "", // IP address of proxy server.
// "proxy_port" : 1080,
// "proxy_auth" : false, // Use authentication for proxy. Note: only username/password for socks5 (RFC 1929) is supported, and it is not really secure
// "proxy_username" : "user",
// "proxy_password" : "password",

/* directory_root path defines where the WebUI Folder browser starts (linux only). Default value is / */
//  "directory_root" : "/home/edu/",

/* directory_root_policy defines how directory_root is used (linux only).
   Valid values are:
     "all" - accepts directory_root and its subdirectories for 'getdir' and 'adddir' actions
     "belowroot" - accepts directory_root's subdirectories for 'getdir' and 'adddir' actions,
      but denies attempts to use 'adddir' to create directories directly within directory_root
   Default value is "all". */
//  "directory_root_policy" : "all",

  "webui" :
    "listen" : "" // remove field to disable WebUI

/* preset credentials. Use password or password_hash */
//  ,"login" : "admin"
//  ,"password" : "password"
//  ,"password_hash" : "some_hash" // password hash in crypt(3) format
//  ,"allow_empty_password" : false // Defaults to true
/* ssl configuration */
//  ,"force_https" : true // disable http
//  ,"ssl_certificate" : "/path/to/cert.pem"
//  ,"ssl_private_key" : "/path/to/private.key"

/* dir_whitelist defines which directories can be shown to user or have folders added (linux only)
   relative paths are relative to directory_root setting */
//  ,"dir_whitelist" : [ "/home/user/MySharedFolders/personal", "work" ]

/* !!! 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" :
      "secret" : "MY_SECRET_1", // required field - use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret
      "dir" : "/home/user/bittorrent/sync_test", // * required field
      "use_relay_server" : true, //  use relay server when direct connection fails
      "use_tracker" : true,
      "search_lan" : true,
      "use_sync_trash" : true, // enable SyncArchive to store files deleted on remote devices
      "overwrite_changes" : false, // restore modified files to original version, ONLY for Read-Only folders
      "selective_sync" : false, // add folder in selective sync mode
      "known_hosts" : // specify hosts to attempt connection without additional search

/* Advanced preferences can be added to config file. Info is available at ""
For example see folder_rescan_interval below */
//, "folder_rescan_interval" : "86400"



I need help to run again the program in the server...
