Seafile Server Manual

Updated 10 hours ago


Seafile is an open source cloud storage system with file encryption and group sharing.

Collections of files are called libraries, and each library can be synced
separately. A library can be encrypted with a user chosen password. This
password is not stored on the server, so even the server admin cannot view a
file's contents.

Seafile allows users to create groups with file syncing, a wiki and discussions to
enable easy collaboration around documents within a team.


The different components of Seafile project are released under different licenses:

  • Seafile Android client: GPLv3
  • Desktop syncing client: GPLv2
