How to install from app store

I have searched the forum for an answer to my question but didn’t find a clear solution.

I have installed Nextcloud on my home server using the Snap package. I can’t figure out how to install additional apps from the app store. Can someone provide specific step by step instructions? Do I need to download and then place the files into specific folders on my server? If so, which folders and how do I find them?


Hello @yogaturtle,
welcome to the Nextcloud community!

  1. Login as admin onto your Nextcloud using a modern browser
  2. Click on your profile icon at the top right corner
  3. A drop down menu will appear
  4. Click at the “+ Apps” link and you will see your app management.
  5. Manage your apps from there, no need to install any apps manually.

To elaborate on previous question; I’ve been searching for facerecognition app which should be available.

Below the link on the nextcloud page

However when I search it on my own hosted nextcloud I cannot find it?

Nextcloud V16.0.7


Thanks for your quick response. Today when I logged in to my account I found the app store and the buttons for installing and enabling. I am not sure why it works today. I think it might because yesterday was logged in through the local iP, rather than the public URL. Could that be the reason?

I am using Pagekite for the public URL since I have a homeserver in China and I don’t think dynamic DNS will work.



Glad to hear it is working for you now.

You hijacked this thread.

Please open new topic next time.

Same here on NC18.

See for details.

I re-installed Nextcloud using Docker on Ubuntu 18.04 server. The app store is not showing again. I don’t know how to get the up store to show up. How do I troubleshoot this problem?
