How to use this image

The easiest is to use our docker-compose.yml.

Make sure you have docker-compose installed. And then:

git clone
cd nextcloud
MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=mystrongpassword docker-compose up

You can now access your instance on the port 80 of the IP of your machine (not recommended for production).

Access it from Internet

We recommend the usage of TLS, so the easiest is to use a TLS capable reverse proxy. Here are 2 examples:

You can also modify manually the nginx configuration file and map the TLS port of the host to the container.


Once started, you'll arrive at the configuration wizard. At the Database Setup step, please enter the following:

  • Database Server: db
  • Login: root
  • Database Name: nextcloud (or you can choose)

And leave the rest as default.

Then you can continue the installation with the super user.


In order to backup, just run the ./pre-backup script. And copy all the data to a safe place.
