Nextcloud - Self-hosted productivity platform¶
Nextcloud gives you access to all your files wherever you are. Store your documents, calendar, contacts and photos on a server at home, at one of our providers or in a data center you trust.
username = admin password = <your global password>
Nextcloud is installed together with the webserver. To fast access the files, a dedicated USB hard drive is highly recommended.
For an advanced setup you could further configure your Nextcloud setup from the command line - see the Nextcloud Admin guide.
To simplify this configuration, DietPi has added a shortcut to the otherwise necessary
sudo -u www-data php /var/www/nextcloud/occ. Just use inside your terminal:
ncc [followed by the desired command]
Where is my data stored ? /mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data (or dietpi.txt choice)
Why am I limited to 2GB file size uploads ? DietPi will automatically apply the max supported upload size to the PHP and Nextcloud configs. - 32bit systems can handle 2 GB - 64bit systems can handle 8796 PB (petabytes)
Will my data be saved after deinstallation? Your userdata directory will stay after deinstallation. As well a database backup will be saved to your userdata directory. Thus you can easily restore your instance by reinstalling Nextcloud and restore the database dump.
