If you have folder-level security (granular folder permissions) enabled in Settings > Misc > General, changes in functionality will significantly impact the way existing share behavior works when you upgrade from versions below 23.1 to FileCloud 23.x and higher. If you have granular folder permissions set, please contact FileCloud Support before upgrading to FileCloud 23.x and higher to avoid share and file access issues.
Beginning in version 23.1, FileCloud Linux installation and upgrades switched to a new repository-based system and no longer support Ubuntu 18.04/20.04, CentOS 7/RHEL 7 and RHEL 8. In addition, FileCloud no longer supports Debian. If you are using any of those OS versions, please migrate to the currently supported operating systems, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS or RHEL 9.
Since support for OpenSSL 1.1.1 ends on September 11, 2023, FileCloud 23.1 uses OpenSSL 3.0. which requires installation or update to the Linux versions listed above.
MongoDB 6 requires use of the AVX instruction set, which is available on select Intel and AMD processors. If your CPU doesn't have the AVX instruction set, MongoDB 6 will not run.
To check whether your CPU has the instruction set, run:
#lscpu | grep -i avx"
Note: FIPS 140-3 modules are still in review for Ubuntu 22.04 and RHEL 9. If you want to install FileCloud with FIPS, please wait until the OS vendors officially announce they are supporting FIPS.
