Migration from Owncloud


I am currently running Owncloud 10.4.1 and would like to migrate to Nextcloud.
What would be the best way to achieve this knowing that I need keep the same users/passwords and can’t recreate the shares ?

Many thanks,

Update your installation to ownCloud 10.5 and then migrate to Nextcloud 20.0.4, because it has just been communicated that the latest Nextcloud release allows to migrate from the given oenCloud version. Check-out the latest blog post for more information about the latest update:

Hi j-ed,

That is really good news ! I am waiting for this since such a long time.
I did upgrade my OC install to version 10.1.x and then discovered the migration tool was only working with version 10.0.x

Once I’ve updated to version 10.5, how would I need to proceed knowing that my owncloud is running inside a Docker container ?


Unfortunately I cannot answer this question. I would assume that Nextcloud need to be installed in the same container, but to be honest, I don’t know.

and whatever you do: don’t forget backupping like crazy.

Yeah I’ve had enough surprises with my personal Nextcloud instance.
