Manual install

See docs/

Paste now supports pastes of upto 4GB in size, and this is configurable in config.php

However, this relies on the value of post_max_size in your PHP configuration file.

// Max paste size in MB. This value should always be below the value of
// post_max_size in your PHP configuration settings (php.ini) or empty errors will occur.
// The value we got on installation of Paste was: post_max_size = 1G
// Otherwise, the maximum value that can be set is 4000 (4GB)
$pastelimit = "1"; // 0.5 = 512 kilobytes, 1 = 1MB

To enable registration with OAUTH see this block in config.php

// OAUTH (to enable, change to yes and edit)
$enablefb = "no";
$enablegoog = "no";

// "CHANGE THIS" = Replace with your details
// Facebook
define('FB_APP_ID', 'CHANGE THIS'); // Your application ID, see
define('FB_APP_SECRET', 'CHANGE THIS');    // What's your Secret key

// Google 
define('G_Client_ID', 'CHANGE THIS'); // Get a Client ID from
define('G_Client_Secret', 'CHANGE THIS'); // What's your Secret ID
define('G_Redirect_Uri', 'http://urltoyour/installation/oauth/google.php'); // Leave this as is
define('G_Application_Name', 'Paste'); // Make sure this matches the name of your application

Everything else can be configured using the admin panel.


The Paste theme was built using Bootstrap, jQuery and various jQuery plugins for present and future features, but we do try to keep it bloat free. Icons are provided by FontAwesome.
