Meet File Browser, an open source, self-hosted alternative to services like Dropbox and other web based file browsers. Today we’ll configure a containerized version of File Browser and have you up and going in just a few minutes. We’ll also walk through creating, editing, moving, copying, and even sharing files and folders so that you get a better understanding about what File Browser is all about.
See this post on how to install
