New to the forum, and really rather new to hosing my own Linux server but I’m getting the hang of it step by step. I now have a openmediavault running on top of a Armbian/Debian Stretch distro on my mini server (arm). Nextcloud is running in docker as per the guide that Techno Dad Life has on youtube Nextcloud in OMV docker
Everything with Nextcloud is running smooth but now when I want Nextcloud to act as my familys photo storage/management I really need the preview generator to make it work. I somehow can’t get it to start with the different commands I found in all the guides. The app itself installs through the Nextcloud web interface, but when I want to run the commands I get into trouble.
So if someone could give me a quick step by step guide to run preview generator in my setting with OMV running Nextcloud in a docker container I’d be really thankful. I believe I could use the scheduled jobs tab (cron) to run the initial preview generating and then later the scheduled jobs but I only get long and, for me, incomprehensible error messages. But that could be because of my lack of understanding where the preview generator wants to run - in or outside of the Nextcloud container.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me
