This tutorial assumes that you have a fully functional Raspberry pi-2 or 3 with Raspbian installed and a 8 GB Micro SD card Minimum!. If you don’t have a Raspberry Pi I would personally recommend buying the Raspberry pi-3 kit. These instructions are for mounting an NTFS formatted hard drive for maximum capacity storage, and allowing ownCloud to store files onto it. This process only applies if you are planning on connecting to the Raspberry PI ownCloud from the WAN (outside the network) using mobile devices or tablet. Now we need to add the WAN IP to your trusted IP list and not to be overwritten by ownCloud. Here add the WAN IP (External IP address) you just got from the router to the trusted domains array. Now port forward SSL port 443 to the Raspberry PI internal IP (LAN IP) address and save settings. ArkOS is an easy to install & manage open-source software layer to convert a $35 Raspberry PI into your own low-cost alternative tool to store and manage your data. In this setup I’ve installed one Syncthing client on my Mac and one Syncthing client on my Raspberry Pi. How does it compare to Bittorrent Sync in ease of use when adding new repositories, sharing secrets etc. I was planning Raspbian, SAMBA server for the users (they’re chiefly Windozers, bless them) and Syncthing.
I am back here after a gap – the builders re-shaped the house, and I was project manager for my sins!
The goal is to build 3 near-identical headless Pi systems, each with a hard disc partitioned into two equal parts.

Am I right in thinking that this will best be achieved by running two instances of syncthing, each under a separate user?
Two users make sense in order to keep the access separated, I have no experience running two instances of syncthing on the same system though.

If you haven’t installed Raspbian then check out my guide on how to install Raspbian via NOOBS. Now we need to get the gid, uid and the uuid as we will need to use them so the pi will remember it even if we plug it into a different USB port.
We need to get the UUID of the attached external hard drive so the Pi can remember this drive even if you plug it into a different USB port.
Then copy the light blue letters and numbers of the sda1 entry usually located on the bottom. Add the following line to the bottom of the file, updating the UUID with the values you got from the above step 5. Accessing Raspberry pi ownCloud From outside the network: open your browser and enter the WAN IP address. Because we installed SSL for more security you might get a certificate error, simply add the certificate to your exception list to proceed.

This is obviously not a document management system replacement that I talked about previously, rather a way for quick sharing.Thankfully, with OwnCloud you can convert your RaspberryPi into an in-house (or even external) file syncing server in about 30 minutes. Remeber to run syncthing -upgrade from time to time, since every week a new version is released with bug fixes.Happy Synching! Can I create a root of folders that are synced with various users without syncing full root to all of them?
Each will be running SAMBA on one (local) partition, with the other acting as an off-site mirror for one of the other machines. We are now making the same adjustment as we did before in the GUI but now in the config.xml file.
I aim to use syncthing to do the mirroring of the whole partition, which is mounted as one directory.
These are the quick commands, for more details including adding the Pi user into the www-data group, see this article.
Some popular alternatives include BitTorrent Sync (not open source and your data is still touched by a third party), ownCloud (an open source dropbox clone, however the performance on a Raspberry Pi is not very smooth) and since December 2013 Syncthing. True enough, the Robofun team hooked up an Arduino board to a Raspberry Pi along with many cans of beer. The last one is a kind of open source implementation of BitTorrent Sync, so in contrast to Dropbox your data is distributed over your own computers and not at a distant server.
In my setup I use a headless Raspberry Pi that is tucked a way in a cupboard as a node in the network, so this client is always online.
