Does anyone know how I can install Dropbox on my Centos 6 server? I’ve tried multiple tutorials but I don’t see the folder they are talking about anywhere.November 4, 2013 at 5:23 pm #155176
Now I see the Dropbox folder but it’s in the root directory, not my /var/www/html directory.November 4, 2013 at 5:39 pm #155178
Hey Chris, just wondering, what you’re trying to do? No experience with Centos or DropBox, so nothing constructive to add.November 4, 2013 at 6:01 pm #155181
Basically what I’ll be doing is setting up Dropbox on my server. This will allow syncing between my Dropbox folder on my Mac to a directory on my server. The reason for this is that I am able to develop all in Dropbox and a bonus is that it creates a backup as well.November 4, 2013 at 11:19 pm #155188
Solved. I paid someone to do it for me.

I hope you didn’t pay them too much, I could have done it in five minutes for you. :P
I don’t want this to come off as difficult, but why not just use git instead? It’s a bit more difficult to set up, sure, but it’s also a lot more reliable and faster in the long run, with all the added advantages that version control brings.November 8, 2013 at 10:39 am #155457__Participant
@chrisburton (not trying to make you feel bad)November 8, 2013 at 11:25 am #155466
Haha, no worries, @traq.
@Josh It was pretty cheap. In fact, he also offered to do it for free but I threw him $40 just for sticking with it when he ran into an issue.
Because I’m not familiar with Git and I’m usually spending most of my day in Dropbox already, it just tailors to my current situation.November 8, 2013 at 12:56 pm #155476
@chrisburton, dude get on the Git bandwagon. Seriously, I’ve been putting it off forever and when I finally took on the challenge of learning it, it was so easy… that I was like there has to be more. If you’re not collaborating with anyone, there’s only few commands you need to learn. And if you stick with “commit often” motto you don’t even need to get into branching or any of the more advance stuff.

Thanks, @Alen. The issue is that I don’t want to deal with command lines. I’d rather do my work all inside the Dropbox folder. No commands or FTP programs. So far I’m loving it.November 8, 2013 at 1:41 pm #155488
The thing is you don’t have to use command line. There are GU Interfaces. I think Chris has video on his YouTube of what he uses.November 8, 2013 at 4:47 pm #155503
But that involves an extra program that I am limited to use on a desktop. With my particular method I can use the simple markdown syntax for my articles, hit save from any device and it will automatically upload to my server.November 8, 2013 at 7:08 pm #155509
A little demo of what I’m talking about:November 8, 2013 at 7:50 pm #155511
I get what you’re saying. What you’re doing is publishing and making backup, not version control. So I guess we’re talking about two different things. But you’re using Kirby so I’m not sure how file system based CMS and Git integrate.
