Seafile no longer distribute binary for generic armhf architectures but rpi binary could work.

Change URL

Since now it's possible to change domain or the url of seafile but use it with precaution because it has not been tested enought for a big production installation. For the authentification and user every email for authentification will have the new domain name. For example toto@old_domain.tld will be toto@new_domain.tld.

To do this run : `yunohost app change-url seafile -d new_domain.tld -p PATH new_path
