what im loking for is a really easy noob proof guide to install nextcloud on ubuntu 18.04 that does not need additional knwowledge and doesn’t stop randomly in between or skips important steps to accomplish sidegoal that i’ ll never use or understand?
Hi there tried that and i got it working right away, including https. I assume this is the same install procedure you can select directly from the live cd (you get the option to install nextcloud with the ubuntu server installation itself). Snap i guess?
Apparmor (or snap) give no access to nextlcoud, so it is “protecting” your folder.
CIFS you should specify version of SMB, e.g. vers=1.0 for old one, e.g. try to put credentials directly without file .smbcredentials if it does not work -o username=username,password=password,vers=3.0. To be honest, I never added Samba via fstab, so I have no working config on hands.
Would I be correct in my suspicion that you installed using the snap package? If so, there is a serious design flaw in the snap package where it does not include smbclient, and you can’t add it. Installing it via apt does not make it available to the snap installation. The snap installation also has a strange procedure for enabling SSL if I recall.
If you really want to use SMB, you’re going to want install a different way. After finding out snap won’t do SMB, I tried a manual installation, but I was having fits out of Collabora at the time and ultimately moved my setup to docker-compose. Although the docker image also doesn’t include smbclient, you can easily add it or rebuild the image to include it.
I tried the vm on my esxi and i must say that its well prepared and has good config tuturials but … als a linux noob i must say that i wonder what i just installed. It has many different config “tools” that is offers to install. It gives me warnings that i do not understand? And i’m lost again …
What do i need to install and what, if possible, add later?
Tried it twice and on both installs i (must be me, not the vm install procedure) screwed up somwhere or something. The result is that that the installation finished but the nextcloud is not reachable.
As Docker or Kubernetes is something i do not want to screw arround with… jet, i’ll try the manual approach again. There must be an easy way to get this working…
!My Owncloud runs on UCS and inside a docker container which gives me headaces everytime something doesn’t work!
For now i’ll stick to the snap install and try to get this working. The mount works once and therefore it should work in general…
Linux … Why easy when you can do it the hard way … (This is a rant, so don’t take me to serious!!!)
