Download Syncovery for Linux

Syncovery for Linux has been released!

You can configure it using command line parameters and XML files. Eventually, it will also feature a built-in web server to allow configuration via browser. This version will run on servers without GUI, as well as desktop environments. A desktop GUI based Linux version may or may not become available also.

You can order licenses via our ordering systems, too.

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.
