suggession nextcloud or proftp

Post by mail2rst »

i have raspberry pi B2, running dietpi > homeassistant on usb ssd. for small photo storage on ssd which software you suggest. this time i am running proftp. which working fine. but now i want lean toward nextcloud as advance functionality. how much resource nextcloud needed to run? this time the temperature of my raspberry pi CPU remain less then 40 C & cpu load remain 15 min less then 0% to 5%. if i run next cloud how much more resource consumption expected. I need resource idea about idle time not when transferring data . as in 24 hours i am not expect use data transfer more then 10 minutes. i want my raspberry remain happy without much load on it, thanks in advance.

Hi,

many thanks for your message. Well this highly depends on the amount of users and how frequent the system will be used. If it's just you, your system should be fine.

Thanks Joulinar

As per your suggestion I have removed proftp & install nextcloud on my raspberrypi. System works fine. Thanks for help,
In past I have one partition of ssd at following location & I have some data on that partition. “/mnt/dietpi_userdata/ssd2”
But now with next cloud everything stored in “/mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data” . i have create two profiles in nextcloud “admin & dietpi” . so system generate default file folder templates in both folders (“/mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data/admin” “/mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data/dietpi”).
As I want all nextcloud data should be come in my second partition. Now dietpi system not allow me to mount my partition at “/mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data” as it contains default files. So please guide me how to mount partition at “/mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data”
And system avoid to add any data on first partition (which is small and dedicated to O/S) all user data on second partition. Which we want to mount.

I would recommend to mount your 2nd partition to /mnt/your_data and relocate whole /mnt/dietpi_userdata/ to that partition. This all can be done within dietpi-drive_manager.

As an alternative, you can remove Nextcloud, change default location of Nextcloud in /boot/dietpi.txt. There you have following section. You can change it to your needs. Once done, reinstall Nextcloud.

Code: Select all

SOFTWARE_NEXTCLOUD_DATADIR=/mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data

After few testing i found nextcloud make my raspberrypi little sluggish. so i just come back to proftp & remove nextcloud. as mostly i am accessing my ftpserver from local lan so i thought it is no need to use fancy software then the lean proftp software. as proftp not consuming much resources on raspberry. & raspberry run with cool CPU. its my choice may be differ from other users., thanks

such decissions always depends on your use case. If you juts like to store data, Samba or FTp are fine. But Nextcloud can do more, much more than just storing data ;)
