Build your own VM, or install on a VPS
DigitalOcean example: https://youtu.be/LlqY5Y6P9Oc
- 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)
- Thick provisioned (better performance and easier to maintain)
- DHCP available
- 40 GB HDD for OS
- 4 vCPU
- 4 GB RAM
- Get the latest install script from master:
- Run the script with:
sudo bash nextcloud_install_production.sh
- When the VM is installed it will automatically reboot. Remember to login with the user you created:
If it automatically runs as root when you reboot the machine, you have to abort it by pressing
CTRL+Cand run the script as the user you just created:
sudo -u <user> sudo bash /var/scripts/nextcloud-startup-script.sh
- Please note that the installation/setup is not finnished by just running the
nextcloud_install_production.shWhen 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
Please check the configuration here: https://www.techandme.se/machine-setup-nextcloud/
Do you want to run this on your Raspberry Pi?
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"
Keep asking questions so that we can add them here.
Q: Where can i dowload VMware Player?
A: You can download the latest release here.
Q: How to update Nextcloud VM?
A: You can not use the built in updater in Nextcloud GUI due to secure permissions on this VM. Use the built in script instead:
sudo bash /var/scripts/update.sh or run
run_nextcloud_update as root from your terminal.
Q: How do I run the occ command?
A: We've added an alias for that as well. As root, just run
Q: The mcrypt module is missing in the VM, why?
Q: Where do I tweak the settings for php-fpm?
A: You can change the settings in /etc/php/7.2/fpm/pool.d/nextcloud.conf, but be aware; only change it if you know what you are doing!
Q: The downloaded file is just a few kilobyte, or corrupted
A: This is due to heavy load on the server. Please try again in a few minutes.
Q: The script says: "WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface yet. Use with caution in scripts"
Q: I get NETWORK NOT OK when booting the VM. How do I solve that?
A: There are a few causes to this error, most of them are your own network or firewall settings.
- Remove the VM NIC adapter in settings on VMware/Virtualbox and then re-adding a NIC adapter.
- Check your firewall so that it doesn't block this specific IP
- Check your router/firewall that you have DHCP enabled.
Q: I get a message that I'm not root, but I am.
A: Please see here: https://github.com/nextcloud/vm/issues/200
Q: Which Hyper-V generation should we chose when creating a machine to load this image?
A: You currently need to use a 1st generation machine.
Q: Do you have a pre-configured Hyper-V VM?
A: Yes we have, you can download it here: https://shop.techandme.se/index.php/product/nextcloud-vm-microsoft-hyper-v-vhd/
Q: I want a bigger version of this VM, where can I find that?
A: You can download it here: https://shop.techandme.se/index.php/product/nextcloud-vm-500gb/
Q: I have found a bug that I want to report, where do I do that?
A: Just submit your report here: https://github.com/nextcloud/vm/issues/new
Q: How to install apps if not selected during first install?
A: Go to the apps folder in this repo and download the script in raw format and run them. For installing Talk:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nextcloud/vm/master/apps/talk.sh && sudo bash talk.sh
Q: How to continue from partially installed system? - You got the FQDN wrong/You put in a bad password/ etc...
A: Extract the VM again and start over. The script can not be run twice in a row.
Q: Does automatic update update Ubuntu and Nextcloud?
A: if you want automatic updates of both Ubuntu and Nextcloud then check out this blog post: https://www.techandme.se/nextcloud-update-is-now-fully-automated/
Q: Can I enable-disable automatic update later of OS/Nextcloud?
A: Yes, it's controlled by a cronjob. Just disable the cronjob to disable automatic updates.
Q: How to backup?
A: There are several ways. We recomend Rsync to a NAS or similar. You can find a script here: https://www.techandme.se/rsync-backup-script/
Q: Can I install in a VM with a NAT and port redirection of port 443 & 10000 & 22?
A: Yes, check this out: https://www.techandme.se/publish-your-server-online/
