I can get to syncthing webui using the ipaddress and corresponding port or using a ssh tunnel but that’s pretty much the same thing. I also didnt find anything relevant in /var/log/apache2/error.log

I just installed syncthing for the first time(just to test your issue) on quickbox and I didnt have this issue. I was able to go to https://server/syncthing and didnt have any issues. I got the normal synthing config menu where I selected a folder to sync, etc.

I wonder if its an issue with having syncthing configured before the switch?

Just tried uninstalling/reinstalling syncthing. As well as deleting the syncthing folder located in ~/.config. Now getting connection refused when using as well as when trying https://myipaddress:8384. SSH tunnel to 8384 still works though.

Just to confirm default syncthing listening address is localhost:8384 correct? That is what shows up when I go to the WEBUI settings console.

Oct 08 22:26:56 hostname syncthing[27404]: [AKYDC] INFO: GUI and API listening on

the only problem i had was after purging it and reinstalling it, was that if you set a password or change any major settings that mess with the apache authentication it will kill the gui but program stays running.

Thanks! Reverse proxy link is working from the quickbox dashboard.I did not test functionality beyond this though.

I did the following:

apt-get purge syncthing
apt autoremove (not sure if this was necessary, but I did it anyway)
rm -rf ~/.config/syncthing/
