Installing FileCloud Server
Use the following outline to understand how the installation process works.
Make sure to read the Requirements and Storage and Client Application Limits first.
After installation, if Apache will not start, see FileCloud not starting on Windows.
Windows Defender October 2020
Microsoft has changed some rules for virus detection. As a result, some files are now falsely identified as viruses.
This can lead to the following errors in FileCloud:
- New file uploads fail.
- Files that have already been uploaded are quarantined or deleted so that users can no longer access them.
We recommend excluding the following directories from the scan in Windows Defender or other AV programs:
- FileCloud temporary folders C:\xampp\tmp and C:\xampp\htdocs\scratch (If you installed FileCloud on a different drive, please use that instead of C:\)
- Managed Storage Location (if you do not use object storage / S3): (FileCloud Admin Portal -> Settings -> Storage -> Storage Path)
You may also refer to the following URL for more information on excluding folders in Windows Defender: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028485/windows-10-add-an-exclusion-to-windows-security
