After trying Onlyoffice Docs for the the last 15 days, i can say onlyoffice is better than Collabora, it runs and loads faster than collabora with the same machine specification and number of users, now i turn back on the nextcloud office with onlyoffice ,i can say this solution is more reliable than collabora office which is slow and failing most of the time
Finally, if you have massive amount of data, let's say terabytes of data, the cost effective way is to selfhost at home. Attaching a disk at home into a VPS in the cloud is quite complicated and I won't recommend this. The performace will really not be satisfactory.
This depends on how much you use nextcloud. Just setup a fresh nextcloud and import things over from your previous install. Most things have import/export . For files, since you already installed a broken one, it already has the files. Just cp over all your files from broken install to the fresh one. After you copy files, https://docs.cloudron.io/apps/nextcloud/#rescan-files in web terminal. Note that you will have to also re-share stuff if you use that feature.
OK, I might do that. Thankfully the two instances of Nextcloud I need to migrate aren't very large nor very actively used.
Alternately, you have to wait for us to investigate if the situation has changed wrt migrating users from uid based installations .
That'd be great. Ideally Nextcloud on Cloudron would be properly portable like most other apps seem to be.
For now I'm just going to do nothing and leave the Nexcloud apps where there are (but do really want to move them so I can save money by cancelling the VPS servers they are currently on)
as long as the new Cloudron and old Cloudron use the same usernames.
I think this is probably the issue. I think I imported the backup before importing all the users! I've now imported all the users, uninstalled the broken install, and am currently re-importing the backup again...
Do lots of testing, and make sure the object storage system is fast and local to the NC instance since NC requires it's installed in that configuration (you can't change from one type to another after install).
This means the Cloudron package is not set up for that configuration at all.
I tested this out quickly. Indeed, the app auto creates an id of the form @nc.domain.com . After domain change, it doesn't adapt. But I don't think this is a bug in the app. Most of the federated apps (even outside nextcloud) cannot change their domain post installation.
I thought the same!
It seems to be a bit of a bugger that, on the other hand, I located the folder for well-known but nowhere does it show the URL in the files in the well-known folder for the app.
I have messaged the developer of the app to see if they could put in the description to only install on a URL that will not change or find a way around it but I don't think the developers of federated apps have it high on their priority to make domain name changes possible.
@Stardenver yes it is. I also have it running on baremetal at home/office.
My new set up has a main drive that's encrypted and another for local backups, which is also encrypted but unlocks after decrypting the main boot/data drive.
Happy to expand on this if folks find it useful 🙂
Thanks again for your setup guide. Just got a new server and its up and running. May I ask how you'd setup your system, so that additional drives are also encrypted and unlock after decrypting the main drive?
