Hello @ all,

I just installed syncthing plugin 1.0. After installation I get following error in the web GUI:

Code:
2019-01-29 12:37:08: Failed to create folder root directory mkdir /Sync: permission denied
2019-01-29 12:37:08: Error on folder "Default Folder" (default): folder path missing 


It's not possible to set any settings at installation process except IP. So I would say it should work out of the box as it is a plugin. However I can't find any documentation on that plugin, too.

Is this failure "normal", so you have to fix it after installation? Do you know what and how to fix it? Would be great if there were some small docs about each plugin...

It's beeing fixed in next FreeNAS version. For now do this:

mkdir /Sync
chown -R syncthing:syncthing /Sync/
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/syncthing restart

It's not. I'm using latest FreeNas (29/08/2019) and I have this issue.


Code:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/syncthing restart
zsh: no such file or directory: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/syncthing

UPDATE:

If I do this to all already created folders in syncthing, works!

Code:
mkdir /Sync
chown -R syncthing:syncthing /Sync/
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/syncthing restart
