Nextcloud gives you access to all your files wherever you are.


When you first set up Nextcloud and navigate to http://<ip>:444 you will be presented with a login screen. This login screen will have the following warning:

Performance warning You chose SQLite as database. SQLite should only be used for minimal and development instances. For production we recommend a different database backend. If you use clients for file syncing, the use of SQLite is highly discouraged.

From there you can click on the dropdown next to Storage & database and you will have 3 options, SQLite, MySQL/MariaDB and PostgreSQL. Pick whichever database driver you like to work with and fill in the necessary fields. Keep in mind that whatever database driver you pick will need to already be installed and/or configured.

Configuring Nextcloud

If you are running the DockSTARTer Nextcloud container behind a SWAG reverse proxy, you may need to add a extra line to the NextCloud config.php file so it can find it.

Without configuring this you will be able to access the web page, but apps may timeout or return an invalid password.

Run the below command and add the line to the config.php file before the );

nano /config/www/nextcloud/config/config.php

Copy the following line: 'overwritehost' => 'hostname',

Where your hostname is the URL you use to access your NextCloud web interface, make sure you include the comma at the end.

Doing this will allow the apps to pass the username/password through to the application.
