How to setup a git lfs server at home?


I am making use of git lfs for storage of large files in a github repository. The only problem is that there is a quota for git lfs; specifically you can only store 1 GB and only stream (download) 1 GB per month. After you run out of that, you must pay $5 for 5 more GB. This could become expensive.

I have an old PC I could boot Linux and port forward on.

Does anyone know how to setup a git lfs server at home rather than using Github’s lfs built in CPU’s?


There are a variety of implementations that you can use, and there’s a reference server implementation you can use for testing or production use.
