Creating app_config.xml files
« on: June 18, 2022, 04:41:11 pm »
Boinctasks lets me edit an app_config.xml, but how do I do this if the file doesn't already exist?  I'm trying to edit it on a phone, and since file access on Android is very restricted, I can't do it manually.  I was hoping Boinctasks could from my Windows PC.

If you have remote access, you can.

Go to the projects tab and select a project.
Now Extra -> Edit config file (app_config.xml)

Warning the process is irreversible, you will end up with a app_config.xml file, at least a default one.

If there isn't any file you get an error message.

Now paste the text, over the error message.

The most basic file is
<app_config>
   
</app_config>

Check syntax and Apply.

That works on all my Linux and Windows machines, but the Android client is older.

Thanks!  That worked!  I never thought of overwriting the error message.

Perfect.
