External storage for Seafile

My YunoHost server

Hardware: Intel NUC i5-5010u, External 3TB disk
*YunoHost version: 4.1.6
I have access to my server : Through SSH & through the webadmin & direct access
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : yes
If yes, please explain:
There is an external spinning disk attached with USB 3.0, mounting to /media/storage

Description of my issue

I’d like to make it so that Seafile files are automatically stored only on this external disk but I don’t see an option like that in the settings during install. Does anyone here have advice on how to set this up in a way that Seafile will be installed on the external drive? Thank you in advance!


The seafile data is stored in /home/yunohost.app/seafile-data/. So you can modify the mount point or make a symbolic link.

Thank you! Do you know what permissions I should be setting for it if any?

You should set the owner and group to seafile and the permission to u=rwX,g=rX,o=
