    How to set up Nextcloud on Docker with NGINX

    Danie van der Merwe · / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Tuesday, 2 November - 18:40

This video was really food for thought for me.... At home, I'm running OpenMediaVault with Portainer and Docker, and all my services are in Docker containers. Updating them is as easy as clicking recreate, and redownload fresh image. The NGINX reverse proxy image makes ita pleasure to manage that side with SSL certs etc.

My paid for VPS server though is all set up with customised Webuzo scripts. I just checked and every service I run on that VPS server, is available in a Docker image... I pay extra monthly for the Webuzo service, and switching to Docker will be cheaper for me, and probably a lot easier to update, especially for my Drupal install. If you've been putting off diving into Docker, it is well worth trying out.

New 'To Do' just added to my task list!

    Open-Source Nextcloud Announces a New Backup Application for Its Home Users: Ability to backup to a friend or family member, while preserving privacy through encryption

Germany-based Nextcloud is releasing an easy-to-use backup application for its productivity and collaboration platform that’s designed not for the big enterprise customers who pay its bills, but for home users and small business who generally use the product for free.

Beside being focused on users who typically aren’t customers, there’s another big oddity to Nextcloud’s new Backup app: users can select a Nextcloud instance being run by a friend or family member as a backup location, even if that other instance doesn’t have the Backup app installed. Also, if that friend or family member turns out not to be as trustworthy as the user thought, the backup will still be secure; only the person initiating the backup has the encryption key.

According to Nextcloud, although more conventional backup locations are also available — such as a directory on the user’s hard drive or USB drive, FTP, samba, or any external storage supported by Nextcloud.

As a follower of Open Source it’s time to look at a storage platform that offers an S3 service like Amazon. Minio offers us a storage platform that we can use in house and reduce our exposure to relying on the cloud giants for storing our data. Nextcloud already comes with all the goodies to &ellipsisRead the full post »
