Do the migration¶
The Seafile Pro container needs to be running during the migration process, which means that end users may access the Seafile service during this process. In order to avoid the data confusion caused by this, it is recommended that you take the necessary measures to temporarily prohibit users from accessing the Seafile service. For example, modify the firewall policy.
Run the following command to run the Seafile-Pro container：
docker compose up
Then run the migration script by executing the following command:
docker exec -it seafile /opt/seafile/seafile-server-latest/pro/pro.py setup --migrate
After the migration script runs successfully, restart the Seafile Pro container.
Now you have a Seafile Professional service.
