Syncthing - Page is a work in process


Steps to follow

  1.  Create a folder using the command - mkdir syncthing  
  2. Use the command ls to verify the folder was created
  3. Move inside the jellyfin folder using the command cd syncthing
  4.  Next check what what directory you are in using the command pwd
  5.  After running pwd you should see something like /home/[YOUR-USER-NAME]/pairdrop printed out. Remember this you will need to know it when updating the docker compose file.
  6. Create a docker-compose.yaml file by running the following command sudo nano docker-compose.yaml

    1. Docker Compose Command

    version: "2.1"
        container_name: syncthing
        hostname: syncthing #optional
          - PUID=1000
          - PGID=1000
          - TZ=Etc/UTC
          - /path/to/appdata/config:/config
          - /path/to/data1:/data1
          - /path/to/data2:/data2
          - 8384:8384
          - 22000:22000/tcp
          - 22000:22000/udp
          - 21027:21027/udp
        restart: unless-stopped

    Above is the code  required to deploy syncthing

    1. Copy and paste the code above into the docker-compose.yaml file.

    2.  Next we want to edit the lines 12, 13, and 14  in the docker-compose.yaml file they currently read
            - /path/to/appdata/config:/config
            - /path/to/data1:/data1
            - /path/to/data2:/data2

    3.  Update lines 12, 13 and 14 so they read (refer to instruction 5 above if this doesn't make sense or you aren't sure what to update with
             - /home/[YOUR-USER-NAME]/syncthing:/config
             - /home/[YOUR-USER-NAME]/syncthing:/data1
             - /home/[YOUR-USER-NAME]/syncthing:/data2

    4. Once everything is copied and pasted in and edited press control+x (at the same time) on your keyboard to exit editing mode.

    5. Press Y then return on your keyboard to save everything

    6. Once you have the compose file setup, run 'sudo docker-compose up -d'

    7. Containers will be setup and created.
