Add my external drive local as main data for nextcloud ? (NCP + docker + Raspberry pi )

Hello,

how can i add my external hard drive as main data for nextcloud ?
After check this tuto : https://github.com/nextcloud/nextcloudpi/wiki/Configuration-Reference#nc-datadir
I dont see nc-datadir in my panel …

My setup :

Raspberry pi3 - Raspbian
Docker
Nextcloudpi
External storage 1TB ext4

Thx for your help.

Hi,
that’s the same problem for me.
Could someone help me?

thank you very much in advance

nc-datadir is not available in ncp’s docker image
This is how I make it work for me.
Preparations:

  • Create a mountpoint for ncdata

sudo mkdir /media/ncp

  • Find UUID of external drive

ls -lh /dev/disk/by-uuid/
(Mine looks like this)
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Aug 11 09:10 29075e46-f0d4-44e2-a9e7-55ac02d6e6cc -> …/…/mmcblk0p2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Aug 11 09:10 35e98a80-8895-41f4-93e7-39940a1fda70 -> …/…/sda1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Aug 11 09:10 9304-D9FD -> …/…/mmcblk0p1

  • Add a ligne to /etc/fstab

sudo nano /etc/fstab
add line for your drive (copy/paste your drive’s UUID):
UUID=YourDrive’sUUID /media/ncp ext4 rw,users 0 0

  • mount the drive

sudo mount -a

Now you can :

  • remove existing container,

docker rm nextcloudpi

  • create a new directory for ncdata as for example

sudo mkdir /media/ncp/ncdata

  • then run/create container with

docker run -d -p 4443:4443 -p 443:443 -p 80:80 -v /media/ncp/ncdata:/data --name nextcloudpi ownyourbits/nextcloudpi-armhf 192.168.n.nn

  • wait for init done with

docker logs -f nextcloudpi
(ctrl+c to exit log)

As this question was asked before (also on Telegram) I’ve added above answer to the docker getting started documentation for future reference :wink:
