Pterodactyl SFTP Server
This package serves as a SFTP server to run alongside the Pterodactyl Daemon. It is not designed to run stand-alone on your system.
Previously we made use of Node.js to handle running our SFTP server for the Daemon. While this worked, and has allowed us to provide more advanced permissions and keep things off the host OS, it has also lead to many issues. Most notably has been extremely poor performance when trying to work with directories containing hundreds or thousands of files. In addition, this poor performance has also caused bottlenecking in the application when it comes to managing servers.
Our goal with the introduction of this standalone server is to provide a lean, performant, fully-featured SFTP server that will hold up the the demands placed upon it.
To run this program in a standalone mode (rather than booted by the Daemon), use the arguments below.
./sftp-server [--config-path] [--port] [--bind-addr] [--readonly] [--disable-disk-check] [--debug]
flag default help --config-path ./config/core.json This flag defines the location of the Daemon configuration file which is read to help determine some internal settings. --port 2022 The port for the SFTP server. --bind-addr 0.0.0.0 The bind address for the SFTP server. --readonly false If provided, the server will run in a read-only state that denies anyone, regardless of permission, from writing or modifying files. --disable-disk-check false If passed, disk space usage will be disabled. --debug false If passed, the server will run in debug mode which can be useful for printing stacktraces and additional connection and error information.
