Remove of GUI Listen Addresses

Hi, I accidentally remove the GUI Listen Addresses field and now I’m not able to access the GUI. What can I do? Thanks

Edit the configuration file and add it back in.

Where the configuration file lives depends on your OS. Windows users will find it in C:\Users\<You>\AppData\Roaming\Syncthing\config.xml, whereas Linux users will probably find it in ~/.config/syncthing/config.xml.

Under <options>, find <listenAddress> and set it to default (or add <listenAddress>default</listenAddress> if you’ve somehow managed to remove it completely).

I cannot find the file. I have a Mac and in the documentation it is written that the path should be $HOME/Library/Application Support/Syncthing. I do not have a folder called Syncthing

How did you install Syncthing?

I install it through the binary file

By download Syncthing from GitHub yourself? And you ran it as yourself, not with sudo or anything?

Then your configuration file should be at $HOME/Library/Application Support/Syncthing, as you said.

Run syncthing -paths. Syncthing will tell you the location of the Configuration file.

I downloaded it from syncthing website. However it tells me command not found

How did you run Syncthing before, then? You must have managed to run it in order to see the web GUI.

Oh I solved it. It seems that by default I cannot see all files on my computer. Thank you so much :slight_smile:
