I am very happy with NC 16 on my Ubuntu 18.04 server. It’s not perfect but I get way more done than with my Dropbox.
Since it’s a multi purpose server I also use the directories of Nextcloud to transfer data over sftp into the folder of a dedicated “ftp” user. It’s about 2 to 200GB a day, namely an offsite backup.
Now the small annoyance is that if files aren’t transfered via PC client or browser the file database isn’t updated. So the files are on the drive inside the folder but not listed in Nextcloud. Right now I am running a cron for occ:scan at midight. I wanted to know if there is a more elegant and efficient way to do this? Best case without a cron?
Edit: I am no Linux expert, but maybe there is a service I can run to monitor the data folder and when something new appears a “small” scan could be triggered in some way?
