How to install?

1. Extract the content of the archive inside a folder on your server.
2. Make the data/ folder writeable by the server. For example, chown -R www-data /pydio/install/path/data/.
3. Access the Pydio folder through a web browser:

That’s it! Next, read Quick Start from the Admin Guide.

### Enterprise Linux RPM Installation (CentOS, RHEL)

Install the Pydio repository :

sudo rpm -Uvh

Or simply click on this link and install via GUI tools. This will install /etc/yum.repos.d/pydio.repo which configures the repository, allowing update management. Once installed, update the yum database and install pydio.
Warning, currently the pydio-stable AND pydio-testing repositories are enabled by default, make sure to disable pydio-testing either directly in the repository file (/etc/yum.repos.d/pydio) or using –disablerepo via the command line.

sudo yum update
sudo yum --disablerepo=pydio-testing install pydio

Restart Apache, then open http://localhost/pydio.
Notes: Make sure to enable the apache ModRewrite module, and let the pydio vhost use it (AllowOverride All). For CentOS7, you may have to enable the EPEL repository to grab all the necessary php modules (e.g. php-mcrypt). See our System section in our How-To’s to find the most suited instructions for your OS.


### DEB packages Installation (Debian,  Ubuntu)

You’ll have to manually append the following lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list file :

deb stable main
deb-src stable main

NOTE : If you want to install the “dev” release, you can use the deb “testing” distribution instead of “stable”, which would change the sources.list entry to

deb testing main
deb-src testing main

Then you have to install the public key using the following command :

wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Finally, update the apt-get database and install pydio :

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pydio

Copy the apache config sample :

 sudo cp /usr/share/doc/pydio/apache2.sample.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/pydio.conf
 sudo a2ensite pydio
 # Enable mod_rewrite
 sudo a2enmod rewrite
 # On Ubuntu 14, you may have to manually enable mcrypt
 php5enmod mcrypt

Now restart Apache, then open http://localhost/pydio.
When you are asked for updating the .htaccess file at the end of the install, you’ll find the file under /usr/share/pydio/.htaccess


### Remarks

RPM users, please note that for the time being, you must disable SELinux in order to run Pydio (see[..]isabling_SELinux.html).

The config files for building rpm and deb are available here:

Packages have been built and tested on Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL / CentOS / Scientific Linux). Debian packages are available and they run smoothly on both Debian and Ubuntu (see below). Thanks to Argeo for the first pass on RPMs, and to Aurélien Requiem for the Debian packaging.

Docker Container

Docker is an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in production, on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, public clouds and more.

This Pydio container is based on CentOS 6. It contains pydio 6.0.2 pre-configured and listens on port 443 (ssl). After installation, user can access to by address: https://servername/pydio.
Default account for Pydio: admin / P@ssw0rd

Install from Docker Index:

$ docker search pydio # you can get a list of pydio images
$ docker pull pydio/pydio-core

Run in background:

$ docker run -d -p 443:443 pydio/pydio-core

Go to Pydio,

In Global Configurations >> Main Options >> Sharing section
