i’m new here and only recently started working on Linux, servers, nextcloud and more.
But I am very curious and want to host my own cloud. I’ve been working on that for many days and weeks now, but I’m having some problems that make me delete my LXCs again and again and have to start from scratch.
I would like to run my Nextcloud on an LEMP stack (i.e. with Nginx) behind a reverse proxy (also with Nginx).
But I seem to have a problem of understanding, because it just does not want to work. So first my simple question:
If I have Let’s Encrypt with certbot on my reverse proxy (LXC 1), i.e. the communication up to my reverse proxy in my local network is SSL encrypted, how important is it to set this up on my Nextcloud LXC (2) as well? Or can the communication between Reverse Proxy and Nextcloud be unencrypted ? What are the advantages and disadvantages ?
Otherwise I obviously have some problem to set up the nginx configuration of the virtual host correctly.
I’m pretty desperate because I don’t know where the error is.
It would be great if you could help me.
Thanks a lot.
