This is a public pastebin server. You may upload files up to 10MB in size and have them shared publicly. FTP is used to upload files to the server.
Uploading is quite simple. Using your favourite FTP client you can
cd incoming (the public upload directory), and
put file.whatever then run
sha1sum file.whatever on your file and the public
address will be
To make uploading a bit quicker I wrote a tiny
client that FTPs the file to the server,
calculates the hash, and prints what the resulting url should be. You can
pcf with other programs to do cool stuff. Like take a screenshot,
upload it, and put the url in your clipboard.
scrot -q 85 /tmp/scrot.png && pcf /tmp/scrot.png | xclip -in -selection c
An FTP server configured to allow public uploads into the
That public FTP directory is watched with
incrond. Incrond is configured to
run a script when new files are placed in the public FTP directory. The script
checks that the file is under 10Mb. Then it caculates the sha1sum of the file
and renames + moves the file into the web server’s public directory.
Additionally the server uses cron to run another script which checks if the disk usage is above a certain percentage. If so it deletes uploaded files based on age * size.
With basic server knowledge you should be able to duplicate this for yourself
(and even have your own private version if you’d like). Then you can set your
pcf environment variable to your ip/hostname and you’re golden!
