Basic Nextcloud installation on openSUSE Leap 42.1


Here is the basic installation on openSUSE Leap 42.1.

Follow the official documentation for extra configuration.

I cannot add it on how to, so I guess this is the proper category.

So why choose openSUSE Leap? openSUSE Leap is a brand new way of building openSUSE and is new type of hybrid Linux distribution. Leap uses source from SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE), which gives Leap a level of stability unmatched by other Linux distributions, and combines that with community developments to give users, developers and sysadmins the best stable Linux experience available. Contributor and enterprise efforts for Leap bridge a gap between matured packages and newer packages found in openSUSE’s other distribution Tumbleweed. You can download openSUSE Leap from the site

Moved to the howto section. You can shorten the howto a bit because you don’t need to create a NC-database, just use the root credentials in the NC installer and it will create a new user and database itself.
