I recently installed syncthing on Debian on a free tier google cloud vm. I installed syncthing v1.2.2 via packages, set-up a syncthing user and group and it runs via systemd the GUI is proxied via nginx. It was working flawless; I added devices and folders without problems.
I recently upgraded to v1.3.0 via packages. I added the device ID of this server on a new syncthing server and when I try to accept the invitation the GUI responds with: “Connection Error. Syncthing seems to be experiencing a problem processing your request. Please refresh the page or restart Syncthing if the problem persists.” I discovered I get the same response when I try to adjust anything in the settings, such as set the GUI theme to dark, or add a folder. Apart from this syncthing is syncing current folders with current devices without problems.
- Because systemctl status gave a warning “The unit file, source configuration file or drop-ins of email@example.com changed on disk.” (I think due to the pkd upgrade): sudo systemctl daemon-reload
- restart syncthing
- restart vm
I am new to working with linux and commandline. After installing syncthing a few times on different free cloud providers I am becoming more comfortable using the commandline and I think I made a proper installation on this vm.
Thanks for taking the time to read through and I hope someone is willing to help me out a bit.
