Q: Why is FileBot Node is not working?

What does the log say? The log will tell you why FileBot Node is crashing on startup and thus can't serve requests. You'll need to login via SSH and use the find and cat commands to find and display the log file.


Q: Where is the log file?

Please login via SSH and use the find command to find the log file:

Shell: Select all

find / -name filebot-node.log 2> /dev/null

e.g. Synology NAS:

Shell: Select all

cat /var/log/upstart/filebot-node.log                   # DSM 6

Shell: Select all

cat /var/packages/filebot-node/target/filebot-node.log  # DSM 6.2.4

Shell: Select all

cat /var/packages/filebot-node/var/filebot-node.log     # DSM 7
e.g. QNAP NAS

Shell: Select all

cat /opt/filebot-node/filebot-node.log

e.g. Expected log entries that tell us that the filebot-node service is up and running:
