    Cloudreve is an open source network disk software that supports various storage methods such as server native storage and Tencent Cloud COS. Its features, such as offline download, drag and drop file upload, and online preview, allow you to quickly build a private or shared cloud storage system. The Cloudreve application image, with Nginx, Aria2, and MariaDB software pre-installed, is based on the CentOS 8.2 64-bit operating system.
    This document introduces how to use the Cloudreve application image to build a Cloudreve cloud disk to implement file upload, share and offline download features.
