I have nextcloudpi running on an old laptop with a NFS storage for data. I just love the ease on how this setup works and how easy it is to maintain. This means, in contrary to most (I assume) it is not installed on a Raspberry.
Anyhow the idea could fit others as well. I have read some articles about OnlyOffice as a docker on the same machine as NextCloud, most of them using nginx. I found one using Apache, but the second domain, the letsencrypt stuff and setting up the connection to the onlyoffice docker container from NCP could all done a little easier.
My idea was that the NCP panel gets support to allow connecting to a docker container where the OnlyOffice is running. This would allow RasPi users to deploy the Container anywhere (NAS, another PC etc) and NextCloudPi config is handling the additional needed domain (if needed), the port forwarding / dnsmasquereding if used and configuring NextCloud to have everything in place forwarding requests to the specific container.
From what I have seen, this should be doable, the configuration seems not that hard itself. Why I haven’t yet done it manually, because I do not want to break the NextCloudPi setup when changing something manually - it just runs so smooth - and upgrades just work that I couldn’t be happier.
What do you think, is this something of interest. Could this be done with NextCloudPi Panel and configuration to let the “instance” connect to an onlyoffice instance / docker and handling the rest (certs, nc config etc)?
