Working directories

WARNING This documentation is for Cells v2. Looking for Pydio Cells v3 docs?

By default, application data is stored under the standard OS application dir:

  • Linux: ${USER_HOME}/.config/pydio/cells
  • Darwin: ${USER_HOME}/Library/Application Support/Pydio/cells
  • Windows: ${USER_HOME}/ApplicationData/Roaming/Pydio/cells

You can customize the various storage locations with the following ENV variables:

  • CELLS_WORKING_DIR: replace the whole standard application dir
  • CELLS_DATA_DIR: replace the location for storing default datasources (default CELLS_WORKING_DIR/data)
  • CELLS_LOG_DIR: replace the location for storing logs (default CELLS_WORKING_DIR/logs)
  • CELLS_SERVICES_DIR: replace location for services-specific data (default CELLS_WORKING_DIR/services)

When running in production mode, we generally advise to setup at least CELLS_WORKING_DIR to a standard Linux layout folder, typically /var/cells.
