Nextcloud Talk Easy Setup Script now works with HPB packages from Debian 12 Backports


The Nextcloud Talk Server packages have finally arrived in Debian 12 Bookworm. This means that anyone can now set up and operate a Talk Server directly from the current Debian distribution without much effort. The packages are then automatically kept up to date by package management.

The packages are in the Debian backports as they can be updated here in a timely manner:

The package was divided into four parts (server and proxy separately) so that small and large installations can be operated as a cluster. The “Client” package can be used to measure the throughput and performance of the server.

Standalone signaling server for Nextcloud Talk
Standalone signaling server for Nextcloud Talk - benchmarking client
Standalone signaling server for Nextcloud Talk - common
Standalone signaling server for Nextcloud Talk - proxy

Our install script nextcloud-high-performance-backend-setup now also uses the Debian packages:

With the script you can automatically set up a complete high-performance server with Collabora Office and Windows fonts in about 5 minutes. When installing you can either select the Debian packages or have the server created directly from the sources. If you take the Debian package, the installation will take care of itself later.

A video of the script can be found here:
