I tried to get Syncthing to autostart by using the runit install and copying the run and log folder as instructed but I could never get it to auto launch. I wound up just putting @reboot /usr/bin/syncthing & into the crontab and that works. Is there a reason I shouldn’t continue to use crontab to launch it at reboot?
No, do that if it works for you.
I have been using @reboot cronjobs since the beginning and never had a problem with it.
I don’t use the package and every instance has its own binary, so auto-update doesn’t make problems.
Thanks, I’ll keep using it then!
