I have installed NextCloud via NCPI on my pi 4. I bought a .dev domain at google domains. It needs a ssl-certificate in order to work. if i want to forward my domain to my ip (dyndns), I still need a SSL certificate?! due to secured namespace .dev tld needs https. how can i actually install this for my server when it runs nextcloud? i’ll probably use let’s encrypt (i don’t want to spend big bucks on this).
welcome here on the forums!
Using letsencrypt is in my opinion quite easy with certbot. Best have a look onto certbots page for your specific server and os. The instructions there are quite easy to follow, i think.
And in my opinion, to have a clean setup, use certbot with
certonlycommand and configure your server manually with mozilla ssl configurator, just like stated on nextcloud’s administration docs.
EDIT: Seems like i was a bit too fast, sorry. I actually never used the ncpi image. But just having a look into their docs, there are instructions for certbot, too!
The solution is to use the NextCloudPi Panel: Go to letsencrypt, put whatever domain points to your ip there and your email, certbot will handle anything
I didn’t know much about SSL and certificates but using certbot is in fact very easy.
