Creating a database and a privileged user
CREATE USER 'pydio'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '<your-password-here>'; CREATE DATABASE cells; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON cells.* to 'pydio'@'localhost'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Make sure not to leave the
max_connections to its default value (151) while going live in production.
Cells microservice architecture provides its own webserver to provide a unified Gateway to the underlying services. As such, unlike old versions of Pydio, you do not need Apache or equivalent.
Providing web access to the platform, this Gateway will need to "bind" itself to an available TCP port like a standard web server (typically 80/443, or any other port).Back to top
