I’ve had a couple of Nextcloud installations so far (in VMs running on a VM platform I run myself) where I’ve manually installed it and never been super convinced that I’ve properly met every dependency or security consideration… so I usually slap a great big firewall in front of it to limit it to only IPs I know I’ll come from… then unfortunately use Dropbox for anything where I may need to come from any IP.
Since I’m looking to completely redo that VM platform I’m going to run Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi 3 model B for the time being whilst I’m moving stuff around… this also gives me a good opportunity to look at how a properly installed Nextcloud looks.
I’ve noticed there are two ways (at least, tell me if there are more) that the Nextcloud project officially endorses to get Nextcloud on to a Pi. One is “Nextcloud Snappy” which seems to be used by the “Nextcloud Box” but you can download it on your own Pi anyway… and another is what looks to be a community project that has since gone official… Nextcloud Pi… https://ownyourbits.com/2017/02/13/nextcloud-ready-raspberry-pi-image/
Which is the better route (or another? as long as it is official / endorsed by the project)… for something that will
a) be secure if I left it public
b) demonstrate a good/sane installation base (in terms of how the image was prepared)
