Documentation for Tahoe-LAFS Users

There are two collections of documents for users. One collection is made up of pages on this wiki, and the other is made up of files in the 'docs' directory of the Tahoe-LAFS source tree.

Note: these links are to the 'trunk' (latest) versions of the documentation. See the 'docs' directory of a Tahoe-LAFS release for docs relating to that version.

User Docs, on the wiki

  • about: the Tahoe-LAFS filesystem and the unique properties that it offers
  • quickstart: how to get the software and set it up
  • running: how to run it once it is set up
  • Public Test Grid: an existing grid to use for testing your installation

User Docs, in source code

A Glance Under The Hood or "Gee What Does This Button Do?"
