Thanks for the reply...I don't know what I was doing wrong...bbackupctl is
now finding the bbackup.conf file just fine. However, the second issue of
the daemon not writing a PID file is causing the error I'm seeing
now. When I start the bbackupctl I get 1 error message (in the event log)
indicating it can not find the command socket.
Error message from command prompt:
C:\Program Files\Box Backup>bbackupctl.exe sync
Using configuration file C:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd.conf
Failed to connect to daemon control socket.
* Daemon not running
* Daemon busy syncing with store server
* Another bbackupctl process is communicating with the daemon
* Daemon is waiting to recover from an error
Failed to connect to the command socket
I don't see anything in the event log for the daemon that looks like an
error. When I start the bbackupd there a several entries (start, login,
get file list, ....) that indicate a successful startup.
On my machine it doesn't look like it is creating the PID file or the
command socket. I have tried different settings for these in the
bbackup.conf file. The current ones are the defaults that shipped with the
program. Also, I am running under and administrator account and have full
access to all directories on the machine.
CommandSocket = bbackupd/bbackupd.sock
PidFile = C:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd\bbackupd.pid
Also, the "C:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd" directory does exist.
