Install Https File Server on Raspberry Pi
Https File Server
Simple file-sharing webserver. Other computers on your local network can connect to your computer from the web browser and download files you share.
Or, you can enable port forwarding on your router so that anyone on the Internet can download your files.
This app uses Wine to run a windows exe file.
To launch: Menu -> Applications -> HTTPS File Server
Fortunately, Https File Server is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.
- Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
- Use Pi-Apps to install Https File Server.
For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bullseye.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3 and the Pi 4.
Https File Server will only run on PiOS 32-bit. Pi-Apps will not let you install Https File Server on PiOS 64-bit.
