For a couple of years now, I am running Nextcloud on a server at home.
The server is a mini PC that was only used for Nextcloud back then and now has some other VMs installed. Everything is virtualised by Proxmox.
Since it was only used for Nextcloud and I gave the Ubuntu VM ~600GB of SSD storage.
Now I need this (fast) storage, for other VMs and am planning to reinstall Nextcloud on the SSD and store the user data to an external USB 3.0 drive.
I have already backed up the data to another external hard drive just to be safe, as well as created a Proxmox backup of the entire VM in case something goes wrong.
Now I would like to reinstall the VM, then pass the HDD through to the VM (this has worked so far), but I can’t get the storage selected in Nextcloud.
Can you help me with this?
The guide I have used to install and configure nextcloud is this one. It is in german, but the steps are the same in each language.
