I followed the guide at https://c9.io/blog/dropbox-on-cloud9 to setup Dropbox sync on Cloud9. I was able to exclude certain folders and all works well. My primary application is pair programming in a commercial programming language (Matlab). We each run Matlab locally from the Dropbox folder and work on the code using Cloud9. So far so good.
My issue is that the Dropbox daemon drops after a few days. Roughly once a week, the Cloud9 workspace must be associated with Dropbox afresh. It’s not sufficient to type
dropbox start. That only results in
dropbox status always returning
Starting.... It never really starts. Instead, I need to say
~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd, head to the Dropbox website to authorize the association, and then start syncing with
How can I make the Dropbox sync persistent?
