Update 1.3.8 to latest, CentOS7

Recommended Posts

Good day,


I've been successfully running btsync 1.3.8 on CentOS 7.3. I am looking to update to latest (1.4.1) and have a few questions:

1. The upgrade instructions state I need to place the rslsync along btsync.

  • Where is that? /var/lib/btsync/?
  • /var/lib/btsync has a folder .SyncUserxxxxxxx. Is that the folder you mean by ".sync"

2. I have the old btsync repo under /etc/yum.repos.d

  • If i add the new repo for resilio, will that work with above manual install?

3. Will old shares be preserved?


Thank you,

1) this is the guide to update binary from 2.3.x to 2.4.x, not from 1.3.8 to 1.4.1 (not sure what these version are, we didn't release these). 
/var/lib/btsync/ - well, this is the storage of official Sync package v2.3.x
/var/lib/btsync /.SyncUserxxxxxxx, no , it's not that .sync 


2) You're confusing two instructions - on updating package and updating binary. Package is updated through package manager. binary - manually using the linked guide. 
So pick either, not both. 

3) yum repo in unofficial and it's not supported by us. We don't know where Sync in that package keeps its settings, so most likely update won't preserve the settings. These are two different packages.
