Running custom sync server

Unread post by cubancigar11 » 2018-07-04, 04:15

After some search I found this topic: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=14528 . It details steps to run your own server.

I wanted to know the current status of the solution, vs https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/FSyncMS

Most importantly, How and where does one specify the custom server for palemoon to sync?

The python topic is outdated -- we haven't used that thing for years because it caused issues with user data and scaling to more users.

We've used the PHP/MySQL solution that is FSyncMS since then. I haven't had the time yet to write a setup guide for that.

When you set up sync, you can choose "custom sync server" in the server drop-down. This allows you to enter your own sync server address.

So shall I go with FSyncMS following the previously mentioned link for getting it up and running, and expect reasonable success? Thanks btw for the reply and for the browser.

It's entirely up to you -- if it's for your own personal use either solution should work just fine. The FSyncMS solution is a lot simpler through, since it only requires a basic LAMP/LEMP server setup (Linux-(Apache|NginX)-MySql-PHP) but as said I don't have a setup guide for that yet.
