Deploying Seafile under Linux

Here we describe how to deploy Seafile from prebuild binary packages.

Deploy Seafile in Home/Personal Environment

Deploy Seafile in Production/Enterprise Environment

In production environment we recommend using MySQL as the database and config Seafile web behing Nginx or Apache. For those who are not familiar with Nginx and Apache. We recommend Nginx, since it is easier to config than Apache.

Note: We have prepared an installation script Deploy Seafile with an installation script. The installer offer a quick and easy way to set up a production ready Seafile Server using MariaDB, Memcached and NGINX as a reverse proxy in under 5 minutes.

You can also install Seafile manually without the installation script as following:

Upgrade Seafile Server

For those that want to package Seafile server

If you want to package seafile yourself, (e.g. for your favorite Linux distribution), you should always use the correspondent tags:

  • When we release a new version of seafile client, say 3.0.1, we will add tags v3.0.1 to ccnet, seafile and seafile-client.
  • Likewise, when we release a new version of seafile server, say 3.0.1, we will add tags v3.0.1-server to ccnet, seafile and seahub.
  • For libsearpc, we always use tag v3.0-latest.

Note: The version numbers of each project has nothing to do with the tag name.
