I’ve bee running Nextcloud as my personal file server in ‘production’ for six months now and am more and more in love with it. I tried various installs over the last year – on a bare metal ubuntu host, on a VM Ware virtual machine but my current setup has Nextcloud running in a jail on my FreeNAS server. It seems very happy there, is easy to access from anywhere and seemlessly keeps my two work macs, my two linux laptops and my windows laptop synced. I’m on the verge of deleting my files from Google Drive which will complete one big thread of removing Google from my life.
Samuel Dowling’s super clear and comprehensive walkthrough was my key resource with this build. Thanks mate, as us Aussie’s say.
