Getting a Server

Some points below:

  • You will need a dedicated server, from a server provider (e.g. Hetzner, kimsufi, OVH, etc), installed with Ubuntu Server 16.04 or 18.04. Some non-Ubuntu Debian systems will also work.

    • Note: Ubuntu 18.10 is currently having issues with Docker python module install. This should be avoided for now. For more info, see here.
  • Cloudbox only supports x64 (i.e. Intel or AMD 64) machines. ARM based hardware is not supported.

  • Get a server with at least 100GB+ of hard disk space. Even though media is uploaded to the cloud, there is still a need local storage for things like app data and backups.

    Also, the default folder size threshold, to upload Media, is set at 200GB. To lower that, you'll need to go here

  • If you are setting this up on a home server, make sure you open the relevant ports (eg 80, 443, etc) in your router/firewall, before installing Cloudbox.

  • If you are using a Scaleway server, read this.

Tips

Ubuntu

16.04

  • If given an option like below, choose the one with the HWE Kernel.

  • If you get an option like below, select choose ubuntu-1604-xenial-64-minimal.

  • Install OpenSSH server if asked.

18.04

  • If you get an option like below, select choose ubuntu-1804-beaver-64-minimal.

Partitioning:

  • If you have multiple hard drives on the server (eg. 2 x 4 TB), put them in RAID 0 to maximize space and speed (you don't need redundancy as you can schedule backups of Cloudbox).

  • Set all available space to / (remove /home and /data partitions).

  • Leave ample space in /boot (e.g. 2+ GB).

  • Examples

    • Online.net

    • OVH
