SyncThing is a well-known self-hosted shared disk. It is like Google Drive, Dropbox, and so on, but on your own, free, space-unlimited server! Let's install it now!
I am using
Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS on x86_64 server.
- Install docker (remove part needed to delete older versions of docker, that might be installed during OS installation, if you already have docker, skip this step):
sudo apt && sudo apt docker docker-engine docker.io && sudo apt install docker.io
2. Pull synching from dockerhub:
docker pull syncthing/syncthing
3. Run container using the command (port 8384 required for GUI):
docker run -p 8384:8384 -p 22000:22000/tcp -p 22000:22000/udp \ -v /home/reni/st-sync:/var/syncthing \ --hostname=my-syncthing \ syncthing/syncthing:latest
4. Go to
18.104.22.168:8384 host where you're running
syncthing ) to check
5. Don't forget to configure the user in
Settings menu, to restrict access to you storage:
