Hello @angel6700,
You must copy its contents elsewhere.
I install seafile-server like this.

Add an instance

Creating an instance is not a requirement, you can add the content directly to the seafile home directory.
But you will have to overload seafile-server and seahub Systemd service.

[seafile@9cabe06ab369 ~]$ whoami
[seafile@9cabe06ab369 ~]$ pwd
[seafile@9cabe06ab369 ~]$ mkdir instance
[seafile@9cabe06ab369 ~]$ cp -rp /usr/share/seafile-server instance/
In production
For tests with Sqlite
Add an admin user
Start services
systemctl start seafile-server@instance
systemctl start seahub@instance

Wiki and package contributions are welcome.

Hello, I'm not able to configure seafile by reading archlinux wiki and seafile official documentation.

The wiki is outdated, because the seafile-admin command should not be used (as explained in one of the comments of seafile-server aur package).

The file is installed in: /usr/share/seafile-server/

so it tries to create directories in /usr/share/ which is not possible for seafile user, and not desirable for root user.

What am I doing wrong or missing?

Thanks @ishkur for your report, I have fixed the Django version in the package.

A word of warning: don't update your django to version 4, as it seems to be a kind of a spring cleaning exercise full of breaking changes. Otherwise seahub will not start due to various errors. I started to fix them, but gave up after a while, because it is just too much.

Hey guys

I don't have any issues anymore like I mentioned comments below. @Artain try that
pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9
pikaur -S $(pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9) --rebuild
With your helper, of course. But my setup is different anyway. I use aur-seahub only to get all dependencies + libselinux. And everything else I installed through the official installation/tutorial because I was too stupid to understand this way here :)
I have 4 server running this way and everything is running fine. But also still on latest 8 version.

@DanSman, I had an issue with the latest upgrade. In short, I didn't follow the right order - at first I've upgraded seafile, and only then - the rest of system, then rebooted. After that I've got: ===[648]: seaf-server: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory === which has been resolved with one more clean rebuild of seafile/seahub.

In your case it might be some missed Python package, indeed. To trace it down find the line in

== ==

daemon = True


and change it to daemon = False

then try to start and -- all errors will go onto stdout so you'll have a chance to figure out what is wrong.

@DanSman I celebrated too early. It did start but it's not working. I still don't get any logs. And after downgrading get the same result. But after 4h I can only hope @Joffrey updates to version 9 and I can get it working again then.

Thanks for the hint! I have it back on track as well.

pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9
pikaur -S $(pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9) --rebuild
Was my solution.

Artain commented on 2021-12-14 17:57 (UTC)

@DanSman I just got the exact same problem. First which is nice to know if you start manually from the console with start-fastcgi parameter, you can get a more verbose error message. Secondly it appears that the last update I did with pacman deleted 2 packages for me it was captcha which I just installes with pip install captcha I also needed to rebuild after that I could start seahub again.

Is anyone having a problem with seahub starting after an update?

I just updated my server and ran into an issue with seahub being updated as well. Seahub is no longer starting. I'm currently trying to figure out what the issue could be. New python update maybe or dependencies? Rebuild doesn't work either. Baeh ...
