Got Cwrsync daemon working, but I am trying to set some variables in the rsyncd.conf file:
here is my rsyncd.conf file:
use chroot = false
strict modes = false
hosts allow = *
log file = cygdrive/f/rsyncd.log
uid = 0
gid = 0
# Module definitions
path = /cygdrive/f/backup/test/%computerName% <---------- This is how I want it to work...
read only = false
transfer logging = yes
When I try to rsync I am getting this error:
@ERROR: chdir failed
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1506) [sen
Rsync daemon log states:
02/10 16:57:32  rsync: chdir /cygdrive/f/backup/test/%computerName% failed
: No such file or directory
here is what I read in the rsncd.conf documentation:
You may base the path's value off of an environment variable by surrounding the variable name with percent signs. You can even reference a variable that is set by rsync when the user connects. For example, this would use the authorizing user's name in the path:
path = /home/%RSYNC_USER_NAME%
Any idea what this is not working?
