Seafile 5 syncing of old libraries

Admin Seafile

After upgrading to Seafile 5 I observed that my client was not syncing libraries anymore.

It turns out that this happens for libraries that were created long ago (before Seafile 3). According to Seafile issue #975 syncing of Seafile libraries may fail over HTTP(S) if they are stored in an older format on the server.

I’ve been using Seafile as my personal cloud storage for quite some time now and it’s working really really well. Since I’ve departed quite a bit from the standard setup instructions for the web frontend (Seahub) I’m going to document the setup a tiny little bit.
