Simple tool for uploading and sharing files that you can self-host.
All settings are controled by using a .env file, an example is in the repo.
- Upload only: You can make the instance to be upload only. In that case you need to manually delete the files from your hosting machine.
How to host
To run on a regular system I recommend to use a virtual environment to install the dependencies and run the project from there.
We will also be setting up an specific user to run the app as safe as possible with a systemd service file for startup
systemctl start upfast.service
Start on boot
systemctl enable upfast.service
In the repo there is an included dockerfile to generate an image from the latest version of everything, to generate an image just run
docker build . -t upfast (You need root privileges or to be in the docker group).
To run the docker container check the container id with
docker images command.
sample docker run command
sudo docker run -p 8000:8000 -v ./upload:/usr/src/app/upload CONTAINER_ID
The sample command will need an upload directory, you can replace
./upload with a different path to save uploaded stuff.
Nginx Proxy setup
This is an example nginx proxy config for http
cp ./upfast-nginx /etc/nginx/sites-available/upfast ln -sf /etc/nginx/sites-available/upfast /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/
systemctl reload nginx
