Right, so I've got my Nextcloud service up and running.
Do I get rid of my Dropbox account now?
@pswilde I had Dropbox and Nextcloud syncing the same folder and they both went crazy due to them picking up on the other editing their database files on your local disk.
I advise getting rid of Dropbox ASAP now that your Nextcloud is up and going.
@Batcastle Yeah, having them both sync the same folder is a definite recipe for disaster.
I've been with Dropbox for a loooooong time, hard to say bye - but I really should.
@pswilde Understandable. I loved being able to share folders with people. But 2 GB of free storage is too little. I'm using 10+ GB now on my NextCloud, and I have full control of my data. So I think it was worth it.
@pswilde I know I'm being lazy but would you have a good step by step guide of how you setup Nextcloud ? I trust you more than google since you've just done it :)
@atacamacactus I kinda mish-mashed a few different step by step guides to work for my particular setup. It's probably a lot safer and easier to use the Docker container but I used the source.tar from the nextcloud website.
I'd set up a LEMP or LAMP stack first then download the source and configure the web server for it. I had most issues with making sure my nginx site config was right for nextcloud which in the end I copied and adjusted from here: https://bit.ly/2OkPHJV
