Sync.conf Linux Configuration - Error while parsing config file 'shared_folders' must be in global config section


Recommended Posts

I am attempting to run my edited sync.conf file on linux but I am running into an error that states:

"Error while parsing config file: Invalid key context: 'shared_folders' must be in global config section"

 

Not sure what this means or what to do about this, as I don't see any global config section.

 

Full .conf file is attached.

sync.conf

Thanks again eltopo.

 

One other question on the actual configuration. I setup the dir folder to be added to sync, and after executing the config file, noticed the .sync folder added. However, when I used the read/write secret key that I generated in the file, there were no folders/files available to sync to my PC. Hoping to use this .conf file to configure the same setup and deploy quickly on many units, with the only change being the secret key. Is there something I may be missing in order to get that folder/subfolders contents to show up during sync when just using the .conf file from what you can see in my file?

This was the dir under shared folders: "/opt/guestBook/guestsRecordings" - again the .sync hidden folder was added, but using the secret key, there were no folders/files to sync to my pc.
