Due to the recent changes, I’m not sure if any questions remaining on the .DE forum will be addressed, so am reposting this here. Thanks!
I’ve been using Seafile for about a month now and it is working great! I’m going to migrate away completely from OneDrive in the next few weeks. For reference, I’m using the IOS client v2.4.2 and Seafile Server for Windows v5.03.
The one outstanding issue is that Seafile does not seem to be automatically uploading pictures from the iPhone and iPad camera roll in the background, whether the app is running or not. I have Auto Upload, Upload Videos, and Background Upload all enabled. Wifi Only is disabled so that it can upload via celluar or wifi. The Upload Destination is set to My Library.
When I launch the client, it will show that there are X number of files to be uploaded/synced, but it doesn’t take any further action. As an example, this morning I had 19 files that needed to be uploaded, but it did not begin the upload/sync. I tried refreshing the Camera Upload folder to see if that would do anything, but no luck.
The only way I’ve found to manually start the sync and get those files uploaded is to turn off Auto Upload, then re-enable it and set the Upload Destination to My Library. I choose not to reset the uploaded/synced picture files, and then it will push any non-synced files up to the server. This is a repeatable solution, but not ideal.
Any thoughts on how to get automatic upload/sync working correctly across IOS devices would be greatly appreciated!

We will look into the issue.

Thanks Daniel! I downloaded/installed the latest update to the IOS client (v2.4.3) - I didn’t expect any changes as they weren’t listed in the changelog, and behavior with uploading (and the manual workaround) is still the same.
Also, to make sure I’m giving you the correct info, is there another way to verify server version? I just went to the web client and looked at the version number at the bottom right, but that seems odd given your changelog dates. I downloaded and installed in the last week of May (27-May is what most file creation dates are showing in the folder), which makes me think I may have a newer version of the server running? Assuming I really am on 5.0.3, would updating to 5.1.3 help?

Background upload is also not working for me (iPhone 4s, Seafile Server 5.1.3, Seafile App 2.4.3).
In my case it is not necessary to stop and start auto upload, opening the app is enough to start uploading new photos.

Hi Simsala - good to hear I’m not the only one, I guess. I just fired up the mobile client again about 30 minutes ago, and just opening the app still didn’t auto-upload the files. I did my manual workaround and all photos were synced in seconds.
daniel_pan/others, any luck replicating the issue and/or coming up with a resolution? If there is any kind of log I can provide that would help, please let me know.
