Nextcloud is a self-hosted cloud solution. It is a fork of ownCloud by the original founder.

It is open-source under AGPL-3.

Administration

Moving data directory

See https://help.nextcloud.com/t/howto-change-move-data-directory-after-installation/17170

Nextcloud doesn't include a clean built-in way to migrate data.

The proper way to do it is to fix all the paths in the Nextcloud database. However, this is slightly complicated and prone to errors.

The easy way is to create a symlink:

sudo -u www-data php /path/to/nextcloud/occ maintenance:mode --on
mkdir -p /new/path/to/data
rsync -a /path/to/data/. /new/path/to/data
mv /path/to/data /path/to/dataBackup
ln -s /new/path/to/data /path/to/data
chown -h www-data:www-data /path/to/data # To set symlink ownership
chown -R www-data:www-data /new/path/to/data # To set actual data dir ownership
sudo -u www-data php /path/to/nextcloud/occ maintenance:mode --off

Markdown

NextCloud comes with its own WSYWIG markdown editor.
If you prefer to type markdown yourself, do the following:

  1. Disable the "Text" app
  2. Install the "Plain text editor" app
  3. Install the "Markdown Editor" app

Markdown does not have a Latex app.
