see title - is anyone aware of a solution to run desktop synchronizations as a service/daemon, i.e. non-interactively?
What does the “Launch on system Startup” flag in the Desktop client do? (can’t find the documentation for the NextCloud desktop client …)
Thx in advance!
No, there is a feature request for it which contains a workaround (not very nice, not sure if it still works with current clients):
That request is for OwnCloud, not sure what that means
I’d also like a daemon, that way I can have an rsync target on a server (dumping data into the NextCloud data root is not supported as I found out) It would also help with my server that is accessible via VNC and keeps asking for the keyring password (I could of course disable that…). Still, a daemon would be nice. You create a server, install and start the NextCloud daemon, selectively sync some folders and in come your server maintenance scripts or other relevant data…
A real daemon does not exist as far as I know. But it is possible to sync from the command line:
owncloudcmd --silent --user --password /somefolder/somewhere/SyncThisFolder/ https://cloud.example.org/remote.php/webdav/SyncThisFolder/
It only does one synchronisation and then ends.
But you could for example run it regularly from cron or wrap it in a script with a sleep(300) if you want it to run every 5 minutes.
You can check on the following website
Only problem is that it is written in Dutch but probably you can translate it with Google
Also note that the text Boxu must be replaced with nextcloud😇
