Seeking Guidance: Integrating Nginx Proxy Manager with Existing Nextcloud Setup

I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been utilizing Nextcloud AIO for some time now and I’m quite happy with its performance. However, I’m looking to enhance my setup by incorporating Nginx Proxy Managerand I am planning to deploy new applications.

Here’s where I stand:

  • I currently have a functional Nextcloud instance up and running.
  • I’m familiar with Nginx Proxy Manager and have installed a new instance in ubuntu 22.04

My goal is to put my Nextcloud instance behind Nginx Proxy Manager to take advantage of its benefits. I’ve done some research, but I’d greatly appreciate it if anyone who has experience with this setup could share their insights. Specifically, I’m looking for assistance with the following steps:

  1. Adding a Proxy Host for Nextcloud:

    • How do I properly configure a proxy host for my Nextcloud instance within Nginx Proxy Manager?
    • Are there any specific settings I need to be aware of, such as scheme, forward hostname/IP, port, and websockets support?
  2. Updating Nextcloud Configuration:

    • What changes do I need to make to my Nextcloud configuration file to accommodate the Nginx Proxy Manager setup?
    • Are there any recommended settings to ensure smooth integration between the two?
  3. Testing and Verification:

    • What are some recommended tests I should perform after implementing the Nginx Proxy Manager setup?
    • How can I ensure that my Nextcloud instance is functioning as expected behind the proxy?

I truly value the knowledge and expertise of this community, and I’m looking forward to any insights, tips, or advice you can provide. Any personal experiences or lessons learned while integrating Nextcloud with Nginx Proxy Manager would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help and support. I’m excited to take my Nextcloud setup to the next level and contribute to the community’s knowledge base.

Hi, see

my nextcloud instance is already up and running. is there anything i have to keep in my mind because the documentation if for new instance deployment.

You can switch AIO to reverse proxy mode at any time. It only involves recreating the mastercontainer but no data will be lost by doing so.

thank you will try after creating some backups
