[Solved] Context for Advanced Options in Sync.conf

Recommended Posts

Hello, Was trying to add advanced options to sync.conf

"folder_rescan_interval" : "800"
"send_buf_size" : "512"
"recv_buf_size" : "512"
"sync_trash_ttl" : "14"
"peer_expiration_days" : "3"

but no matter how I put it in, the service will not start with those lines in. Even simply uncommenting the example will break it.

Can anyone explain the proper way to add options into the sync.conf file?

Thanks!

using the sample.conf to show what i have:

{
   "device_name": "My Sync Device",
// "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/rslsync/rslsync.pid",

/* 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" : "192.168.1.2", // 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/user/MySharedFolders/",

/* 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" : "0.0.0.0:8888" // 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/resilio/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
      [
        "192.168.1.2:44444"
      ]
    }
  ]
*/

/* Advanced preferences can be added to config file. Info is available at "http://help.getsync.com/customer/portal/articles/1902048-sync-advanced-preferences--more-options"
For example see folder_rescan_interval below */
//, "folder_rescan_interval" : "86400"
 "folder_rescan_interval" : "800",
 "send_buf_size" : "512",
 "recv_buf_size" : "512",
 "sync_trash_ttl" : "14",
 "peer_expiration_days" : "2"

}

This is what I have (bottom part for advanced options added to otherwise working config).

I have tried many combinations now to no avail,

 "folder_rescan_interval" : "800"
, "folder_rescan_interval" : "800"
,"folder_rescan_interval" : "800"
 "folder_rescan_interval" : "800",
, "folder_rescan_interval" : "800",
  , "folder_rescan_interval" : "800"
    "folder_rescan_interval" : "800"
    ,"folder_rescan_interval" : "800"

1) remove quote marks from your params' values. Those are to be integers. taking them into quotes makes them be counted as strings. We'll update the sample config. the correct way will be: 

"folder_rescan_interval" : 800,
"send_buf_size" : 512,
"recv_buf_size" : 512,
"sync_trash_ttl" : 14,
"peer_expiration_days" : 3


2) use commas as GreatMarko suggested.

Awesome! That did the trick, thank you.

Had to start with a  ' , ' on first line resulting in:

, "folder_rescan_interval" : 800,
 "send_buf_size" : 512,
 "recv_buf_size" : 512,
 "sync_trash_ttl" : 14,
 "peer_expiration_days" : 3
