FREEBSD - Fresh 11.0.3 install from pkg or ports


I’ve been looking for a jump to a more simpler life from NextCloud and I’m hoping the Seafile is it.

I am running a fresh FreeBSD 14 vm patched to current.

I’ve tried the below using git, ports, and pkg

I’ve attempted with MariaDB and MySQL
The below is with the following conditions:
/www/haiwen/conf/ = daemon = False
/usr/local/www/haiwen/seafile-server/seahub/seahub/settingspy = DEBUG = True
no jails or anything

In all cases:

Install happens
./ runs without an issue.
./ errors, but research shows that seafile needs to be running.
service seafile start results in:

/www/haiwen/seafile-server # service seafile start
Starting seafile server, please wait …
Failed to start seafile server start results in:

/www/haiwen/seafile-server # sudo -u seafile ./ start

All the logs are empty:

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I’ve been banging my head with it for the past 2 days as well. I got seafile-server running but can’t get seahub up as it’s missing some things (based on the error message received).

You got farther than I did. Don’t give up tho! I will be back on it in a week or so

Have you made any progress?

Did you chown all files and directories to seafile:seafile?

This is where I am stuck at (check thread name, for some reason I cannot post links in posts): Unable to run Seafile on FreeBSD 14 installing from packages

I have not, out with my daughter this week drankin and beachin! Will pick it up soon
