About no longer runs this code but instead a modified version of Pomf, will be uploading that code soon.

Tested with:

  • Apache (PHP 5.4) on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  • Apache (PHP 5.6) on Debian 8 Jessie
  • Apache (PHP 5.6.33 (remi-php56)) on CentOS 6.9
  • Nginx+PHP5-FPM (PHP 5.4) on Debian 7 Wheezy
  • Nginx+PHP5-FPM (PHP 5.6) on Debian 8 Jessie
  • Nginx+PHP7-FPM (PHP 7.0) on Debian 9 Stretch
  • Caddy + php7.0-fpm on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS


  • Deploy base code, for example with git clone
  • Modify includes/config.php (copy config.template.php as a starting point) to set up the main options for Uguu.
  • Some file extensions are blocked by default, this can be changed via includes/config.php's CONFIG_BLOCKED_EXTENSIONS value.
  • Copy rain/template/footer.template.html as rain/template/footer.html and personalize the footer as you wish
  • Execute regularly with cron to delete old files: crontab -e and add 0,15,30,45 * * * * cd /path/to/uguu/includes && bash (or adapt if you know how cron works).
  • Make the Uguu/public/files and Uguu/rain/cache directory modifiable by the web server user: chown -R www-data:www-data /path/to/Uguu/public/files and chown -R www-data:www-data /path/to/Uguu/rain/cache
  • Make sure the Uguu/public/files folder is not indexable, you may use a virtual host config similar to this one using Apache:
  • If you intend to allow uploading files larger than 2 MB, you may also need to increase POST size limits in php.ini and webserver configuration. For PHP, modify upload_max_filesize and post_max_size values. The configuration option for Nginx webserver is client_max_body_size and LimitRequestBody for Apache.
<VirtualHost *:80>

        DocumentRoot /var/www/Uguu/
        <Directory /var/www/Uguu/>
                AllowOverride All
                Require all granted

        Alias "/files" "/var/www/Uguu/public/files/"
        <Directory /var/www/Uguu/public/files/>
          <Files *>
            SetHandler default-handler
          AllowOverride None
          Options -Indexes
          Require all granted


Or something like this using Nginx+PHP-FPM:

    listen    ;

    root                        /home/neku/www/uguu/;
    autoindex           off;
    index                       index.html index.php;

    location ~* \.php$ {
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(.*)$;
        include fastcgi_params;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

        error_page 404 /404.html;
        error_page 403 /404.html;
        location /404.html {
        root /home/neku/www;
} (notice that scripts e.g PHP will NOT be executed from this subdomain)


    root            /home/neku/www/files;
    autoindex       off;
    index           index.html;

        error_page      404 /404.html;
        error_page      403 /404.html;
        location /404.html {
        root /home/neku/www;

Or something like this for usage with caddy: {
    fastcgi / /var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock php
    root /home/neku/www
} {
    root /home/neku/www/files

Using the API

  • Leaving POST value 'name' empty will cause it to save using the original filename.

  • Leaving POST value 'randomname' empty will cause it to use original filename or custom name if 'name' is set to file.ext.

  • Putting anything into POST value 'randomname' will cause it to return a random filename + ext (xxxxxx.ext).

  • Putting a custom name into POST value 'name' will cause it to return a custom filename (yourpick.ext).
