first of all huge thanks to @nachoparker for the whole nextcloudPI project. You enabled me to run my first secure “cloud” in my own home with very affordable Hardware and a very easy installation process.
I loved the NCP on my RPi3b, it worked great with simple Calendar and Notes jobs.
However, i used old and “questionable” Hardware for the Project and now its time for an upgrade.
I bought an Odroid HC2 and i am planning on using it with a SSD to host my new Nextcloudpi instance. First setup tests were okay and after a lot of googling and reading forums even SSH wasnt that hard to set up (after all, hindsight is 20/20).
I found that, while the Nextcloudpi project itself is awesome, the documentation - for me at least - is somewhat lacking. For the life of me i can not figure out, how to properly setup a harddrive as the main drive for the NCP. Yes there are USB Database settings in the web panel, but nothing for a Harddrive. I am just beginning with the whole Linux system and while i like it, i still seriously lack skills therein. So terminal usage feels quite sketchy, especially since there is no “real” documentation for NCP.
I am aware of Docker, or a “normal” Nextcloud installation on a Linux system, however the Nextcloudpi on a Raspberry was a very wholesome experience for me and, especially as an beginner, very doable with the documentation. So i would like to stick with it, albeit with better Hardware.
- Great work nachoparker, many thanks
- NCP on Odroid HC2 very doable
- Harddrive setup not so much, need help!
