Aurora Files

Aurora Files is an open-source file storage platform, built to give you an ability to create your own cloud storage on your hardware by your rules. The file storage can be accessed from web browser or using native clients for Windows, iOS and Android operating systems. Alternatively you can use third-party WebDAV clients. For more informaition please visit Aurora File home page. Look at Aurora Files live demo.

Aurora Files includes Paranoid Encryption module which provides strong AES-256 browser-based encryption. File content is transmitted to the server in encrypted form only, encryption keys are never transmitted to the server at all. Thus, even if the entire data from the server was stolen, your encrypted data is still safe: any data on the server cannot help decrypt encrypted files without the keys.

Installation instructions

During installation process you will need:
  1. Download and unpack the latest version of Aurora Files into your installation root directory
We're assuming that you wish to install the latest stable version of the product. If you're looking for the latest code (e.g., to contribute changes), the following steps needs to be taken:
  • Instead of unpacking the archive, clone the repository into the installation directory:
  • change modules' versions in composer.json file to "dev-master"
  • adjust composer.json configuration file so that sources are preferred:
 "config": {
 "minimum-stability": "dev",
 "preferred-install": {
 "afterlogic/*": "source"
    1. composer.phar file is available in repository, but you can download its latest version 2 from
    1. Run composer installation process by running the following from command line:
      php composer.phar install
      NB: It is strongly advised to run composer as non-root user. Otherwise, third-party scripts will be run with root permissions and composer issues a warning that it's not safe. We recommend running the script as the same user web server runs under.
    1. Next, you need to build static files for the current module set.
      First of all, install all npm modules via
      npm install
      and install gulp-cli module globaly
      npm install --global gulp-cli
      then install the modules required for adminpanel to work
      cd modules/AdminPanelWebclient/vue
      npm install
      npm install -g @quasar/cli
    1. Now you can build static files. Run the following commands in main directory
      gulp styles --themes Default,DeepForest,Funny,Sand
      gulp js:min
      and build adminpanel
      cd modules/AdminPanelWebclient/vue
      npm run build-production
    1. Now you are ready to open a URL pointing to the installation directory in your favorite web browser. Be sure to add /adminpanel/ to main URL to access admin interface.
    1. Upon installing the product, you'll need to configure your installation.
    1. Make sure data directory is writable by web server. For example:
      chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/aurora/data
    1. It is strongly recommended to runs the product under https. If you run it under http, the majority of features will still be available, but some functionality aspects, such as authentication with Google account, won't work.
To enable automatic redirect from http to https, set RedirectToHttps to On in data/settings/config.json file.
Protecting data directory
All configuration files of the application and user data are stored in data directory, so it's important to protect data directory to make sure that users cannot access that directory over the Internet directly.
