Self-hosting Send

Once you update your instance, most implementations will be already setup to begin using Send. An exception to this is if you're using a non-default mapped volume for attachment storage.

If you want to store the files attached to file Sends in your non-default attachments volume, you'll need to point globalSettings__send__baseDirectory= to the new volume. For more information, see Configure Environment Variables.
