With the recent end of free google photos I looked around for an alternative and found Nextcloud. Looking for info on Nextcloud I found that a lot of people use it on top of OMV. I want to know if it is possible to achieve what I want.
1 - Is it possible for OMV and Nextcloud share credentials or will I need to create the same users for both?
2 - I will use Nextcloud as an alternative to Google Photos and possibly for Dropbox too. However since I'll have a disk connected to a SBC I'm thinking to install OMV on it. Is it possible for the nextcloud users to have read access to a folder that is created on OMV?
Use case: I have two users each one with a OMV and Nextcloud account. On OMV I create two folders: photos and backups; Both users have access to these folders on local network, they can write and read to these folders. Is it possible to configure Nextcloud to also give them read access to folder photos so they can access it outside with Nextcloud clients?
