Installing a new file server:
Start up a server in the location it will be serving files to with Debian 8. We recommend using gigabit port speed and an SSD for the fastest OS Reloads. To install the PXE file server, run the following command as the root user:
wget https://install.synergycp.com/bm/pxe-file-server.sh -O - | bash
Then add the File server to SynergyCP under OS Reloads > Deploy File Servers. It can take up to a few hours for the files to sync, depending on the network throughput between the newly added server and its master file server.
Re-installing a file server:
If you are re-installing a file server, first purge docker.
WARNING: This will delete ANY application that runs on Docker, including the main SynergyCP application! Only do this on servers that are dedicated file servers and have nothing else on them.
docker swarm leave --force docker system prune
docker swarm init
Then delete the previous file server on Synergy. You will need to create a new file server in order for files to sync properly.
