I need help for my first install ever

Hello there!
Im new here . I have a raspberry pi 4 with 4GB of RAM .
I want to install Nextcloud on it . Aside with some other projects(like pihole).
Which way is the best and most secure ? Installing via apache or docker ?
Can i use any secure and trusted domain to set it up on the Internet to?
If i want to install another HDD after the setup . is that possible ?

I want a tutorial to help me step by step … Thanks in advance !

Hi, @Udaba if you want there is Nextcloudpi with automatic installation and other tools. I think all type of installation accepts another HDD after installation.
You can use any secure and trusted domain. ( if you want to use a reverse proxy on nextcloud, you can have some issue if you set it up wrong. Don’t forget to open your router ports to have access on WAN ).

Thats the difference with the default apache installation?

A preconfigured image makes it easier to use Nextcloud because everything is preconfigured and read-to-use without the need to dig into the different configuration options in detail.

@Udaba nextcloudpi use apache, so you can put it on the internet ( make sure to open only 80 and 443 ports of your router). to enable https : https://docs.nextcloudpi.com/en/how-to-get-certificate-with-letsencrypt-using-dns-to-verify-domain/

on nextcloudpi there is a menu to add trusted domain instead of use terminal.

@Udaba I’m using mdadm to make a RAID 0 ( mirroring one disk to another), I’m using it with cockpit to have basic monitoring tools and configuration.

Not to be a language nazi, but mirroring two drives is RAID1…

I sadly failed to connect 2 (2.5 inch HDDs) with USB 3.0 , because when i connect both one of them makes a beep sound . also i cant recognize them both .

@Udaba do you use an external power supply on the USB hub to power on the HDD?

No .
Its something like this : 22 Pin SATA3 to USB 3.0 - Skroutz.gr but with a case .
sorry for greek site .

@Udaba this the problem, the raspberry cannot deliver all energy needed for both HDD you have to use an external power supply or something like this.
