The content of the config.json file:

  "db": {
    "engine": "sqlite",
    "path": "/var/opt/ConPDS_Tracker/db/database.db"
  "secretKey": "3O!J81kNrK4MRuRRv&t0pLo8YfRIIUhY7Z3C7E0^B2pTRhViSAQ7o!F6ZUhQfHJC73FtKcH*b&V@$wp$BV8Ry!bspYHQLJSN8Km#IQs%Ol4w#K9Ol!AUtSosz%8W3DnTJV17TO15@EM!WaLOSBa0A0qdEJt1%^JyCHaPWANcPekmdQLgZDjg^zmYqyxU@3g74mvMLFB&mjApZm#A2o2JzQvlu9Js7o0x7Z99e7oeTo#CMFhBWp39!%jKN1%wpGZS",
  "serverStorage": "/var/opt/ConPDS_Tracker/results/",
  "rootUser": {
