Create Conf Files

mkdir ~/dev/conf
cd ~/dev/conf

cat > ccnet.conf  <<EOF
[Database]
ENGINE = mysql
HOST = localhost
PORT = 3306
USER = root
PASSWD = 123456
DB = ccnet
CONNECTION_CHARSET = utf8
CREATE_TABLES = true

mkdir ~/dev/seafile-data
cd ~/dev/seafile-data

cat > seafile.conf  <<EOF

EOF

Start seaf-server

seaf-server -c /root/dev/conf -d /root/dev/seafile-data -D all -f -l - &

Start seahub

Prepare environment variables

cd ~/dev/source-code/seahub/

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/:/root/dev/source-code/seahub/thirdpart:$PYTHONPATH
export CCNET_CONF_DIR=/root/dev/conf
export SEAFILE_CONF_DIR=/root/dev/seafile-data
export SEAFILE_CENTRAL_CONF_DIR=/root/dev/conf

Create seahub database tables

python manage.py migrate

Create user

python manage.py createsuperuser

Start seahub

python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000

Then, you can visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/ to use Seafile.
