I’m trying to install NextCloud on my Synology, as there is no package for NextCloud (only for OwnCloud) I guess that the best way is using Docker.
I’ve tried this docker package: https://hub.docker.com/r/indiehosters/nextcloud/
I did connect in SSH and enter the command:
docker pull indiehosters/nextcloud
It start downloading some files (a list of hex name + download complete), thus some are stuck in the middle of the download. After some minutes all get completed except one file that is stuck at 3.4Mb on 33Mb. After some minutes it did retry but get stuck at some other point.
How can I force the download of the last file ?
By the way is there better way to install NextCloud on a Synology ? is there tutorial for it ? Assuming that is did complete, then I don’t know what to do, do I have to create an entry in MariaDB ? How can I give access to my file stored on the NAS in order to be able to get them in Next Cloud ?
After several try, it did finish the install. If some others need help, here is what I have done:
Connect in SSH using root
docker pull indiehosters/nextcloud (it failed to download everyfiles the first time, but the second time after a very long time it when well).
docker run -d indiehosters/nextcloud (to run nextcloud in docker)
Close SSH session.
Create a nextcloud user in phpMyAdmin (login into your phpmyadmin panel with your root SQL password, http:// your_synology_IP/phpmyadmin, then create a new user from the user tab, choose a password for it and select create a database with the same name, my user is named nextcloud to be simple).
https:// your_synology_IP/nextcloud or if you have a domain name linked to your server https:// yourdomain.tdl/nextcloud. Choose an admin login and password and select advance option.
Choose mySQL/MariaDB and enter the user name you created for nextcloud (i.e. nextcloud) and its password, then enter the database name, if you did like me it’s the same as user (i.e. nextcloud).
Click finish and wait a few minutes that the database get created (you can see in phpMyAdmin the nextcloud database get filled with many stuff, you don’t need to touch or understand what they are).
Then you are ready to use your NextCloud but one step that seams pretty useful for Synology users is to be able to mount other folder from the Synology into NextCloud. Here you need to install the “external storage” app and add a SMB mount for the folder you need. I’m at this step but my folder doesn’t want to get mounted, I’m trying again and will update when I found the right way to to it.
