Newbie here. I’m in the process of running an evaluation on Pydio (Home 3.0.3) to determine if it will fit the needs of a non-profit organization I volunteer for - a group that has lots of historical and vintage documents and images. We want to create a digital archive to pull all of these docs and images into one spot rather than being scattered over many different computers.
I have built a server and installed Pydio here at my house and have it working locally. I have a lot more to learn but I can do the basic things and so far, I’m impressed. Now, I would like to setup remote access so that other volunteers can try playing with Pydio so that we get a consensus if it’s what we want to go with. If we move forward, we will install Pydio on our real website.
At this point, I need a bit of help. I’m familiar with Linux but I’m not an IT or website developer. I’ve never added a security certificate and really don’t want to go to that effort when we’ll take down this server and move to our real and secure website, hopefully very soon. So, I was hoping to implement a simple http server, not https.
Using this page:
I attempted to implement Item 5 - HTTP only. Apparently, I’m not understanding this, because it’s not working for me.
First, I set the binding port to something other than 8080, as I know 8080 is a very common port. I had assumed it could be anything, so for the purposes of this discussion, let’s say it is 8089. I selected localhost as shown by the above page, then selected No TLS. I wasn’t sure if I needed the reverse proxy but it appears that’s how I get the external URL, which I set to http://localhost:8089 as per the document. Then, I saved the configuration. Not sure if I needed to or not, but I then restarted the service cells.
Once I did that, I then went back into my webbrowser and accessed the site using the IP address and port 8089, but it wouldn’t access it. I can still access it via port 8080. And, having one of my other volunteers try remotely, he could not access it remotely (I opened ports 8080 and 8089). (Actually, not entirely true - another volunteer was able to access it via https with 8080 but got the warning about it being nonsecure, advanced, not recommended, proceed anyway.)
I’m hoping someone can tell me what I’m doing wrong, what I missed, or if I’m made a wrong assumption. Thanks for your help.
