Connecting File Server

Hi , does anyone have experience to connecting ERPNext to allow document / pictures / files to save into a separate file server instead of the local file folder?

You could

  • create a subdirectory on the ERPNext server which is sync’d to another server to move the files off on a crontab schedule. Best option is to use a passwordless login PKI/ssh structure between the 2 servers.
  • Alternatively, using something like sshfs, you can mount a remote subdirectory into your ERPNext server’s file system.
    • this is relatively slow if you work with large files and/or a slow network
    • I would not recommend using sshfs via WiFi
  • SMB/CIFS mount of a remote directory will also work.
    • SMB is faster than sshfs

Many thanks
