Unable to upload files (solved)

Hi guys!

My setup…EC2 instance with an s3fs mount for seafile-data. This mount is linked from /media/seafile-data to /home/ubuntu/seafile/seafile-data. Seafile install with MySQL and nginx.

Seafile seems to run and show the currently empty libraries (since it’s a brand new install). I can create users etc with no issues. But when I try to upload a file, I get a “network error” on the upload box in the browser. If using the client, the file gets stuck at 0% and nothing happens. I don’t see any current errors in ccnet.log, seafile.log, controller.log or seahub.log. Just in case I “chown-ed” all the files/folders in the s3fs mount to ensure they belong to the seafile user. But I don’t seem to see what’s the issue.

*: seahub.log is currently empty.

Any hints?

Check SERVICE_URL in ccnet.conf and FILE_SERVER_ROOT in seahub_settings.py.

Or you can use the parameters in the web settings.

The screenshot shows the default values.

Thanks for the very fast reply! So far mine look by default as follows:
SERVICE_URL: https://mydomain.com:8000
FILE_SERVER_ROOT: https://mydomain.com:8082/seafhttp

These ports 8000 and 8082 came by default. FILE_SERVER_ROOT didn’t have /seafhttp by default. I added it, but it didn’t seem to change anything after restarting the services. Are these ports correct?


with a domain name you do not have to indicate the ports

Thanks! That seems to have fixed it. By the way, seems it didn’t like the FILE_SERVER_ROOT line at seahub_setting.py. That wasn’t there, and when manually added it refused to start. But changing it from the UI worked anyway.

I’m gonna keep checking, but I managed to upload a file successfully.

Thanks a lot!
