32bit version of 6.3.x


will there be a 32bit version of Seafile Server 6.3.x ?
I would like to upgrade from 6.2.5 but I’m on a 32bit installation.




I’m sorry we will no longer maintain the 32bit version.

You can follow the backup/restore instructions to move to 64bit version or docker based version.


I’m quite embarrassed to see this because I really need it for the yunohost package.

So what is the solution for the users ?

Hello, any reason for yunohost only support 32bit?

Doesn’t work docker just on 64bit?

I think that many yunohost use have a 32 bit architecture because yunohost is also made for some old hardware which is on 32 bits.

It’s also recommended in the yunohost packing guideline (YEP 2.16) that all app need to support the 3 main architecture ARM, x86 and x64.

Maybe you can compile it yourself, or are there any dependencies not working on 64bit?

Or is it possible to create a community build as same as for ARM.

If you want to compile and maintain this of course. But I don’t know if SeaFile 6.3 has libaries which don’t work on x86, you have to check out this first.

There is NO build for ARM!! I know some people think this, last time it tooked weeks to tell the guy who wanted to use SeaFile for RasPi on Slackware on ARM, that it’s just compiled for raspbian and he have to compile it himself. Finally, he compiled it guided by the help of a manual here in the forum.

Edit: grammar

Yes, there is no “one-for-all” ARM builds, there is a Raspbian build for ARM, which we commonly say “rpi” Seafile build or version.

Here is the precise version of the compilation environment:

desigual@thor ~ $ cat /etc/os-release                            
PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION="7 (wheezy)"

Since Raspbian is based on Debian for ARM, we can use the seafile rpi version on Debian and Ubuntu [i.e. 16.04.4 LTS (Xenial Xerus)] without problems.
