Overall, got my Seafile server up and running with no issue, honestly super impressed with the optimization seeing I am running ours on an old core2duo system I have had laying around for years.
Thing I am encountering, I can’t seem to get the Direct Link option to work as an alternative to the type that Dropbox provides. How I am trying to use this is as follows:
I am creating a custom map repository for Patreon users of maps I create for the game RUST. When I try to put the Direct Link address in the game server for testing it encounters 2 issues…one stating IO Error, but its just a generic error code I suspect seeing the drives are new and test fine elsewhere. The second I get is another server generic read out stating Outdated file. On reading its due to permissions I gather with these types of links and how they are read to the RUST server.
Dropbox will work fine because the way they do links is /2jk3233k433/mapfilename.map?dl=1 but with seafile naming convention everything with the actual file name is omitted. Is there any way I produce a direct file name in the link? I am using this to host the repository of maps we create but also would like to provide our Patreons some hosting ability so they don’t have to physically self host our files for their servers.
This maybe impossible though and I get that due to the way files are secured on this. It seems for hosting map files with this game we can only do it with Dropbox or Discord both being pretty pricey for the amount of space I intend to need soon. Unsure if maybe there is some settings or something I am missing to pull direct file name links so figured I would ask in here.
Any help very appreciated, about to go live soon so want to make sure I can or can’t host these like this with our Seafile server
