it must be a bad joke that a previous thread with same naming was automatically closed.
I bought the nextcloud box and a pi 3 in oktober 2016 because I read at nextcloud page that nextcloud box with pi 3 will be available in november 2016.
Now we have may 2017 and the thread dealing with this topic was closed.
what is the current status? can I install a stable nextcloud release at my nextcloud box with pi 3 now?
thanks jeffery, 1.is your link under https://ownyourbits.com/2017/02/13/nextcloud-ready-raspberry-pi-image/ the special nextcloud box pi 3 version?
2. and is the latest release mentioned in your link in stable status with promised auto updates?
I do not want to give some alpha or beta release a try and I will not play around because I have to store seriously data and this must be in a secure and stable way…
I did not create NextcloudPi, a fine gentlemen named NachoParker did. I just use it. I’ll try to answer your questions and hopefully Nacho will correct me if I’m wrong.
No, I don’t think it’s needed either. As far as I understand, the Nextcloud Box is just a Raspberry Pi computer, in a Western Digital Case with a Western Digital PiDrive. This setup uses the Ubuntu Snappy Core OS and a Nextcloud Snap.
NextcloudPi is based on Raspbian Lite and has preinstalled Nextcloud. Upon boot, Nextcloud us up an running! There is a special config interface that has a lot of extra features that you can enable for Nextcloud if needed.
NextcloudPi installs Nextcloud 188.8.131.52 right now. As far as I know, that is the most recent Stable release. From what I’ve seen an researched, you can set this up to ONLY update to stable releases and bypass beta releases.
Some key points:
NextcloudPi is really just a preinstalled instance of NExtcloud, that is ready to run.
Nacho has added a number of extras to make it easy for a novice to install and configure Nextcloud. For example, he has:
automated the Lets Encrypt process so you do not have to run it manually
added the ability to support Port Forwarding on your router
added the ability to run a DNS (DNSMasq) server if needed
added the ability to install and configure Fail2Ban
added the ability to backup and restore your Nextcloud configuration
There are many more features, but those are the ones I remember now.
how far is the stable relase from you which was announced in oktober 2016 when I bought my nextcloud box and pi3 to use it with your upcoming stable version from you as the hardware provider?
now nearly 2 more month are gone since your last posting from 8th may…
Installed NextcloudPI yesterday… Easy install and works like a charm. I installed it on my NextCloud box as I was having trouble finding out how to upgrade NC11 to 12 and stumbled upon NextcloudPI. Highly recommended… Good work.
