Hi guys,

just installed Nextcloud-AIO and wanted to access a local external storage.
Is this not possible in the Docker-version of NC?
I don’t see the option in the menu…

And if it’s a docker-limitation, is it possible in the Snap-version?

Thank you!

Hi, see

Thank you so much for the quick reply, that worked! :smile:
May I ask one more thing?
I switched from an manually setup version of Nextcloud to the AIO-version.
Before that I backed up the old setup with this script.
Is it possible to import the settings?
All the data is backed up seperately, I just care about the configuration so I don’t have to setup every client again… :wink:

Hi, see all-in-one/ at main · nextcloud/all-in-one · GitHub

Thanks again! I think I’m gonna make a fresh setup… :smile:

I faced same problem few weeks ago.
And I did this, GitHub - a3linux/homecloud-docker: HomeCloud services with docker compose based on AIO, in case as a reference.

Seems a bit complicated, but thanks for the answer!
I guess a fresh install is the best/most stable option. :wink:

FYI I just went through this process and documented several issues, problems, and tweaks needed to get it all working here:

Hello I got the external storage to work but when accessing remotely the page is accessaible but no files at all are seen. I created an issue but no one has responded.

Would any of you know why I’m not seeing the files remotely???
