Jirafeau App


Jirafeau is a "one-click-filesharing": Select your file, upload, share a link. That's it.

Change admin password

  1. Choose a new password

  2. Create a sha256 hash of the new password. To do this, use the web terminal (or any terminal) and do:

echo -n "newpassword" | sha256sum
  1. Then, use the File Manager to edit custom.php and set the sha256 hash of your new password generated in step 2 above.
$cfg['admin_password'] = '<new sha256 hash of your new password goes here>';

Disable admin interface

To disable the admin interface, leave the password blank. Like $cfg['admin_password'] = ''.


The app allows for a multitude of customization by overwriting config values in /app/data/custom.php using the File Manager.

All options can be seen here.

For example settings the page title can be done by adding the following:

$cfg['organisation'] = 'My filedrop';

Restricting Uploads

By default, anyone can upload to the instance. You can add customizations in /app/data/custom.php to protect your instance.

To protect uploads with a password:

$cfg['upload_password'] = array('psw1');         // One password

Alternately, uploads can be restricted by IP address(es):

$cfg['upload_ip'] = array('');

If you set a password, you can set a list of IPs that can upload without password:

$cfg['upload_ip_nopassword'] = array();


To change the theme, edit /app/data/custom.php. List of theme names is available here.

$cfg['style'] = 'dark-courgette';

If you want to make a custom theme, then use the Web Terminal to first copy over from an existing theme (themes are located under /app/code/media.original):

# cd /app/data/media
# cp -r /app/code/media.original/dark-courgette/ mydarkhorse

Edit the new theme mydarkhorse to your content. Then, change /app/data/custom.php:

$cfg['style'] = 'mydarkhorse';
