Easy Nextcloud Installation discussion

  • Sorry what do you mean by that?

    The path is /srv/9379aef8-4c1e-43c1-ab84-31fd2aa5b875/JulyPaddy

    Im not using MergerFS so I'm on thin ice here. Depending on your MergerFS rules the data might be a specific drive, which you could mount directly instead of the MergerFS pool.

  • After some testing it seems that rights are not inherited to other groups in nextcloudpi docker. So I cannot access a directory that has group "users" even if www-data is member of this group.

    As soon as i change the group to "www-data" it is accessible.

    That is not really nice as i cannot just change the permissions because of the effect on other applications.

  • Is there a possibility that I can install nextcloud withoud duckdns and letsencrypt. I have my own wildcard certificate and I want to use that.

    Were should I place that certificate?


    And I'm a very very beginner..:):)

  • TechnoDadLife sorry to quote you directly.... I got a real problem. So I hope you can help.


    I successfully ran your guided nextcloudpi installation.


    I pushed ALL my files from Dropbox and googledrive to nextcloud pi.


    Then, I deleted ALL my Dropbox files. I deleted ALL my googledrive files.


    I enjoyed using nextcloud for 7 weeks.


    My server needed to be restarted, so I did.


    I wondered why my nextcloud didn't came back.


    I sudoed: "docker ps" - nothing was running.


    I typed:

    Code
    docker run --restart unless-stopped ownyourbits/nextcloudpi-x86


    And now I'm WASTED!


    It did following:

    Code
    Setting up a clean Nextcloud instance... wait until message 'NC init done'
    Setting up database...
    Setting up Nextcloud...
    Nextcloud was successfully installed

    for real???


    How am I supposed to know this? why is it doing this??? Are all my files gone??! Please please help me...


    Update


    I must admit, I wrote this post in a moment of panic.


    I let 2 hours pass by to think.


    Then I checked my docker container:

    Code
    sudo docker container ls -aq
    c10910fff461
    cddcd2a1d07f

    Whoah, there they are.


    :rolleyes: SO SORRY FOR BEING DUMB! :rolleyes:


    I did:

    Code
    sudo docker container restart cddcd2a1d07f

    And my nextcloud was online again.


    What did I learn?

  • Hi

    I'm new and still working myself into the Linux and OMV.

    I installed OMV5 and it works so far stable. I build a Raid1 on BTRFS (sdc) and an additional storage on BTRFS (sdd) for non important data. So far so good.

    I followed the following instruction which worked for me in the past and worked in all aspects to me:


    Due some internal maintenance I set up OMV5 (change of sdd to a bigger volume) completely new (don't ask why I did so...) Anyway when it comes to include my smb folders into Nextcloupi (V. 20.0.2) It is not accepted, means I can't mount it.


    Do you have any solution for me?

  • hi,


    There is an app into nexcloud to connect a samba/cifs sharing.


    Did you install on RPI?

    First of all thanks to you quick reply.

    And it seems to me that I'm an idiot or getting old or both...

    I checked again every step of how to mount the smb shares. And it turned out that I always referenced to the absolute path instead of the shared folder. Anyway it is working now. Sorry if I bothered you all.

  • Hello.

    I am a beginner at omv. I had an old pc and decided to use it as a nas and start learning.

    I tried to install nextcloud. I followed the steps from TechnoDad's video "Easy Nextcloud Install in 6 Minutes with Stacks!"

    I used ports 82:80, 450:443

    When i enter the link it shows me my router page, an when i enter the ip it shows the "welcome to our server" page.

    Any suggestion of how i could enter nextcloud page?

  • If I may politely suggest considering the following option: setting up a KVM-machine and install subsequently an Ubuntu server, and after that following this instructions:

    Carsten Rieger even provided an installation script, besides his detailed descriptions (which I did not test, I was successful with the explanation of linuxbabe):

    It worked for me pretty smooth, keeps me independent of maintainers of containers and snaps, performs quite good, and is easy to backup, and I reduce the risk of messing up my base system which is OMV, hosting all the things I virtualized.

    Good arguments.
