Download Syncovery for Linux

Syncovery for Linux with Web GUI has been released for desktop Linux, servers and NAS devices with Intel and ARM processors.

A Synology package for installation with Package Center is now available:
Synology 64-Bit Package (v7.86b for Intel compatible processors)
ARM Packages v7.86b: Marvell Armada 370 Marvell Armada 38x Marvell Armada XP
Got a different ARM processor? Please request the installation package from us by email.

QNAP packages for installation with AppCenter are now available:
QNAP 32-Bit Package (v7.86b for all Intel, AMD and compatible processors up to firmware 4.2.x)
QNAP 64-Bit Package (v7.86b for new 64-bit firmware 4.3.x)
Installation on QNAP is fully automatic, the service will be started, and you will get a Syncovery icon on your QNAP desktop, from which you can get to the web UI. The user name is default and the password is pass.

For QNAPs with ARM processors, there are four different packages. The left-most one is for the newest CPUs. Which one you need is best determined thru trial and error. The App Center will tell you if it can install the package or not.

Syncovery for Linux can be configured using the browser based GUI, command line parameters and XML files.

Using the Web GUI

Extract the downloaded .tar.gz archive, and run these SyncoveryCL commands in a Terminal window:
./SyncoveryCL SET /WEBSERVER=localhost    (to configure the web server)
./SyncoveryCL    (to start SyncoveryCL)
Open the web GUI in a Browser window by entering: localhost:8999. Please use this only in your LAN/VPN for now, do not open the port to the Internet. SSL is not supported yet. Unless you are accessing the Web GUI from localhost, it will ask for username and password. The defaults are: user name = default, password = pass.

This is the complete command line to configure the web server:
SyncoveryCL SET /WEBSERVER=localhost /WEBUSER=username /WEBPASS=password /WEBPORT=port /WEBDOCSPATH=path_to_web_docs_folder

To turn the web server OFF (requires a restart if SyncoveryCL is already running):

The Web Docs Folder is called WebDocs and it is included in the tar.gz archive that you download from this page.

Additional Information

On some Linux systems with ARM processor, it is necessary to execute the following command in order to be able to use SyncoveryCL:
ln -s /lib/ /lib/

SyncoveryCL will create a .Syncovery folder for configuration, logs, and databases in the HOME folder. It depends on the HOME environment variable. You can also use SYNCOVERY_HOME, which takes precedence. HOME should not be /.

The documentation is currently being written. For a start, here are some example command lines to configure and run Syncovery:

Run a job without saving it to the configuration file:
SyncoveryCL RUN /LEFT="/home/tobias/Documents/" /RIGHT="/home/tobias/DocumentsCopy" /L2R

Add this same job to the configuration file:
SyncoveryCL ADD /NAME="LocalTest" /LEFT="/home/tobias/Documents/" /RIGHT="/home/tobias/DocumentsCopy" /L2R

Run an existing job:
SyncoveryCL /RUN="LocalTest"

Configure a scheduled job (every 30 minutes):
SyncoveryCL ADD /NAME="LocalTest" /LEFT="/home/tobias/Documents/" /RIGHT="/home/tobias/DocumentsCopy" /L2R /Sched /Rep /Days=0 /Mins=30

List Jobs in Config File:
SyncoveryCL /LIST

Disable a job:
SyncoveryCL CHANGE "SFTPTest" /Disabled

Enable a job:
SyncoveryCL CHANGE "SFTPTest" /Disabled=No

Show job configuration:
SyncoveryCL SHOW "SFTPTest"

The easiest way to get the command line with additional parameters is to create the job in the Windows or Mac version, and go to the Information tab sheet in the profile editor, where you will see the profile XML and command line.
