    Yazir, you should give access for seafile user to read/write files in seafile-data and ccnet:

    chown -R seafile:seafile /home/seafile/

    Hi Matei,

    Many thanks great article worked perfectly for me!!

    Would love an article on seafile using https to replace http.

    Keep up the great articles mate.

    God bless.

    Why does it say “/home/seafile/ccnet/seafile.ini not found. Now quit” when executing “./ start”?

    seafile.ini is available in the referred location.
