Nextcloud Plugin

The Nextcloud Plugin is an extension for Grav CMS. Upload your backups to Nextcloud.


Installing the Nextcloud plugin can be done in one of three ways: The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method lets you quickly install the plugin with a simple terminal command, the manual method lets you do so via a zip file, and the admin method lets you do so via the Admin Plugin.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

To install the plugin via the GPM, through your system's terminal (also called the command line), navigate to the root of your Grav-installation, and enter:

bin/gpm install nextcloud

This will install the Nextcloud plugin into your /user/plugins-directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/nextcloud.

Manual Installation

To install the plugin manually, download the zip-version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then rename the folder to nextcloud. You can find these files on GitHub or via

You should now have all the plugin files under


NOTE: This plugin is a modular component for Grav which may require other plugins to operate, please see its blueprints.yaml-file on GitHub.

Admin Plugin

If you use the Admin Plugin, you can install the plugin directly by browsing the Plugins-menu and clicking on the Add button.


Before configuring this plugin, you should copy the user/plugins/nextcloud/nextcloud.yaml to user/config/plugins/nextcloud.yaml and only edit that copy.

Here is the default configuration and an explanation of available options:

enabled: true
folder: /grav-plugin-nextcloud
  trigger: space
  max_backups_count: 25
  max_backups_space: 5
  max_backups_time: 365
Option Default Values Description

username null string Your Nextcloud username
password null string Your Nextcloud password
folder /grav-plugin-nextcloud string The remote storage folder
purge.trigger space none, number, space, time The trigger to remove remote backups
purge.max_backups_count 25 number Maximum number of backups
purge.max_backups_space 5 number Maximum storage space in GB
purge.max_backups_time 365 number Maximum retention time in days

Note that if you use the Admin Plugin, a file with your configuration named nextcloud.yaml will be saved in the user/config/plugins/-folder once the configuration is saved in the Admin.


The plugin will upload every newly created backup automatically.
