Import Directory To Seafile

Since seafile 5.1.3 pro edition, we support importing a local directory on the server to seafile. It's a handy tool for the system admin to import files from existing file servers (NFS, Samba etc.).

To import a directory, use the seaf-import.sh script in seafile-server-latest directory.

usage :
seaf-import.sh
-p <import dir path, must set>
-n <repo name, must set>
-u <repo owner, must set>

The specified directory will be imported into Seafile as a library. You can set the name and owner of the imported library.

Run ./seaf-import.sh -p <dir you want to import> -n <repo name> -u <repo owner>,

Starting seaf-import, please wait ...
