I am currently using Nextcloud in Docker, with 3 containers, one for Nextcloud itself, one for MariaDB and one for Redis. I have no idea any more why Redis, but configured it according to some tutorials, and it was recommended. MariaDB also simply because it was recommended.
I don’t completely dislike the concept, but I do question if I should proceed with this or I should reinstall Nextcloud on a solo-server (ironically, I used to have a single server, and moved to docker).
Why? I have a feeling that installing of additional features might be simpler. Am I mistaken, and should manage docker better, meaning make any adjustments in the docker deployment and be done with it? What is actually a preferred way?
What I am doing or planning on doing with Nextcloud:
Currently simply using it between my iPhone, iPad and PC to sync my Password-Database and for some simple sharing folders.
What I intend to do is a connection to my TrueNAS, which will host my Photos, which Nextcloud should mount (not host), meaning I want a link to the folder where photos are. I would like to remain on a folder structure I always had, I am going to buy a Mac, and still would like to keep it that way, however I would also like to have the photos visible in the Nextcloud App on my phone, which are basically in the archive.
I still didn’t really decide or test how the photo system of Nextcloud works, so can’t say much about that.
Anyway, my first decision is whether I continue with Docker or change back to single server.
Can you comment?
