Nextcloud version: 20.0.1
Operating system and version: Ubuntu 18.04.5

Good afternoon,

I currently have an install of Nextcloud running as a snap on Ubuntu. Pretty soon I’m going to be migrating my lab, and in the process I would like to move my install to a manual one so I can have easier and more control over the components of said install. The snap is great but focuses on simple more than what I’m looking for.

To acomplish this, I’d like to know if it would be possible to export the information/database to a new install, or if not that then to know what would be the best path forward to with.

Please let me know if you have any other questions for me! Thank you.

That should be a good starting point: https://github.com/nextcloud/nextcloud-snap/wiki/Migrating-from-nextcloud-snap-to-Nextcloud-server
