How to install a new app


I just installed nextcloud on my server and I am trying to install announcements app, but I can’t find the way how to do this… In the apps page, there is no link to add new apps…

I downloaded the app, uploaded to my server and then I enabled it. This is the only way to install a new app?

Thank you!

my config.php file

$CONFIG = array (
  'instanceid' => 'sdfsfsdfsfs',
  'passwordsalt' => 'UcSsdfsfsdfsdffdsfs',
  'secret' => 'ysfsdfsdfsfsdfsfsdfsdfsfsdfssdfsfslEe1/Depk',
  'trusted_domains' =>
  array (
0 => '',
  'datadirectory' => '/var/www/html/',
  'overwrite.cli.url' => '',
  'dbtype' => 'mysql',
  'version' => '',
  'dbname' => 'nextcloud',
  'dbhost' => 'localhost',
  'dbport' => '',
  'dbtableprefix' => 'oc_',
  'mysql.utf8mb4' => true,
  'dbuser' => 'oc_admin1',
  'dbpassword' => 'D1U//VnoFFO7ssdfsfsdsdfsfDA',
  'installed' => true,
  'mail_from_address' => 'nextcloud',
  'mail_smtpmode' => 'php',
  'mail_smtpauthtype' => 'LOGIN',
  'mail_domain' => '',

Server configuration

Operating system: Ubuntu 16.04

Web server: Apache2

Database: MySQL

PHP version: PHP Version 7.0.22-0ubuntu0.16.04.1


I’ve also installed NextCloud, with these parameters just like you.
I could not install the AppStore either.

I read more places to add to config.php (but it did not help me):
‘appstoreenabled’ => true,
‘appstoreurl’ => ‘’,

There was a problem yesterday and a few people couldn’t reach the app-store. Please try again today.
