A frequently asked question we get from customers is if we have support for filebrowser. At the time of writing, we don't officially support it, but it can be installed using a script a community member has written.
To follow this guide, you will need to SSH into your server. If you need help with this, please refer to the how do I connect article.
These tools are not officially supported. Please consider reaching out to our Discord for unofficial community-driven support on anything listed below.
This installer will use your existing username and a randomly generated password (or one of your choice) to secure filebrowser. Please consider reading the script before running it. The installer will output a port number with how to access the filebrowser install on completion. Please remember this number.
bash <(curl -sL "https://github.com/brettpetch/hosted-scripts/raw/master/filebrowser.sh")
If something goes wrong during your install, please consider checking the logs. You may find them by running the following:
less -r +G ~/.logs/filebrowser.log
These can be helpful in cases where you need to see the output from installation.
On first run, go to
https://<hostname.io>:<yourportnumber> to access Filebrowser. This should ask you for a login. You will also receive a warning about SSL, which can be ignored safely.
Controlling the Systemd Service
systemctl --user status filebrowser
systemctl --user start filebrowser
systemctl --user stop filebrowser
systemctl --user restart filebrowser
systemctl --user enable filebrowser
systemctl --user disable filebrowser
I Can't Remember my Port Number
grep "[::]:" ~/.config/Filebrowser/filebrowser.log via ssh. This should respond with a line that looks like the following:
<date and time> Listening on [::]:16781
this is your port number ^
For application specific logs, consider running the following:
less -r +G ~/.config/Filebrowser/filebrowser.log
You can exit
less by pressing
q at any point.
