I’m new to Seafile and this is my first post, so bear with me.
I’m planning to use a Raspberry Pi 3 with an external harddrive as a backup/personal cloud solution.
I checked a bit in the manual, about building or deploying. And I checked a guide on medium . com from 2019 (not allowed to post lonks yet)
