Special thanks to

Build your own VM, or install on a VPS

DigitalOcean example: https://youtu.be/LlqY5Y6P9Oc

Minimum requirements:

  • A clean Ubuntu Server 18.04.X using the alternative installer
  • OpenSSH (preferred)
  • 20 GB HDD for OS
  • XX GB HDD for DATA (/mnt/ncdata)
  • Absolute minimum is 1 vCPU and 2 GB RAM (4 GB minimum if you are running OnlyOffice)
  • A working internet connection (the script needs it to download files and variables)

Recommended

  • Thick provisioned (better performance and easier to maintain)
  • DHCP available
  • 40 GB HDD for OS
  • 4 vCPU
  • 4 GB RAM

Installation

  1. Get the latest install script from master:
    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nextcloud/vm/master/nextcloud_install_production.sh
  2. Run the script with:
    sudo bash nextcloud_install_production.sh
  3. When the VM is installed it will automatically reboot. Remember to login with the user you created:
    ssh <user>@IP-ADDRESS
    If it automatically runs as root when you reboot the machine, you have to abort it by pressing CTRL+C and run the script as the user you just created:
    sudo -u <user> sudo bash /var/scripts/nextcloud-startup-script.sh
  4. Please note that the installation/setup is not finnished by just running the nextcloud_install_production.sh When you login with the (new) sudo user you ran the script with in step 2 you will automatically be presented with the setup script.

Machine configuration of the released version

Do you want to run this on your Raspberry Pi?

Great news! We have forked this repository and created a Raspberry Pi image that you can download from here: https://github.com/techandme/NextBerry or here https://www.techandme.se/nextberry-rpi/.

We call it NextBerry and it's confirmed to be working on Raspberry Pi 2 & 3.

NOTE (2018-08-01): This is not maintained anymore, but keeping the info in case someone wants to pick it up again.

I want to test RC!

No problem! We made it simple. Run update.sh but abort it before it starts so that you have the latest nextcloud_update.sh. Then put this in your nextcloud_update.sh below the curl command (lib.sh) but before everything else and run it:

To test a specific RC version:

NCREPO="https://download.nextcloud.com/server/prereleases"
NCVERSION=12.0.1RC5
STABLEVERSION="nextcloud-$NCVERSION"

Or the latest RC:

NCREPO="https://download.nextcloud.com/server/prereleases"
NCVERSION=$(curl -s -m 900 $NCREPO/ | sed --silent 's/.*href="nextcloud-\([^"]\+\).zip.asc".*/\1/p' | sort --version-sort | tail -1)
STABLEVERSION="nextcloud-$NCVERSION"
