Keep everything in the Seafile database, and use Seafile virtual drive to access and manipulate those files locally on the desktop and use external folder apps in NextCloud to make those files available online for sharing or whatever using the NextCloud Web GUI. Just searched around a bid an it seems that indeed there is no perfect solution for this. In the first step, you need to connect the hard disk to the Raspberry Pi. Nextcloud Hub. I’ve personally never had it keep up to date with a local external, regardless of the “scan on every access” setting. One possible solution would be to put everything in the internal data folders, and then mount via web dav the nextcloud drives to the desktop, similar to what the Seafile people suggested I try. I’m trying to get more people I know to try it and having such a helpful community has been a lifesaver. Configure Nextcloud data to be on the USB drive. Prior to mapping your drive, you must permit the use of Basic Authentication in the Windows Registry. So that I can have local manipulation of the files on my desktop, I mount the Seafile server files to the desktop local folders using a Seafile virtual drive. Again in the documentation section I linked, it’s mentioned that Nextcloud does not always keep up to date on external storages. Do they time out or something? This perhaps confuses more than it clarifies. I started this topic asking about SFTP, and since then have decided to use Webdav, and it works totally fine. If you just want/need to be able to directly edit files within /user/david/work , then I think the solution you provided by the graphic above, is the best you can do, mounting this local directory via external storage engine into Nextcloud. So I could do this solution, but I might have trouble with the syncing for the reasons that have been listed above. I checked my Apache log files could not find any error. Moving Nextcloud database to external drive. But now the second question is, as your desktop machine is the Nextcloud server machine as well, you want to be able to directly edit the files via desktop software. I think the mentioned issues outweigh the possible advantages and I agree that you should try to use Nextcloud internal data + webdav for all files you want to sync. That’s actually exactly what the occ files:scan command does, and it works either on internal or external storage, per that same doc page. Raspberry Pi (3 or 4, but preferably 4) with power cable; Micro SD card with Raspbian; External hard drive, preferably externally powered Tech Preview shows virtual drive in action, reducing need for users to manage storage manually Stuttgart, January 28 2019 - Nextcloud GmbH, supplier of the most popular self-hosted content collaboration platform, introduces a Virtual Drive in the Nextcloud Desktop Client. hi Folks, Nextcloud has both a selective synchronization client (which goes to a given folderinstead of a drive), and a network-share mount point via WebDAV (which can easily look like a “virtual drive” depending on your OS and desktop environment). Mount your hard drive in the file system; Enabling the "External storages" plugin in Nextcloud; Exposing your Nextcloud installation to the internet; The requirements before we can get started. If your Nextcloud is installed in a sub-directory of your website, then the WebDAV URL should be As long as you keep the SyncThing/SFTP/SMB/NFS/whatever shared folders outside of your Nextcloud internal data folder, everything will work fine and you don’t need any cron job to manually sync the data, AFAIK. It works very well, you can access/share/use it like any local folder in your Nextcloud. This post is to record the steps how I mounted my Google Drive into NextCloud running in Docker environment. Report Save. All directly from all clients or course (work and home desktop/notebook). Report Save. actions_module (shared) To unmount, run: umount ~/nextcloud Note. Okay, that’s a lot of discussion to take in so I’m going to try and do my best to parse these things piece by piece. Of course always applying proper labels as per wiki. Again in the documentation section I linked, it’s mentioned that Nextcloud does not always keep up to date on external storages, just like FadeFX said. Not sure if I really need fail2ban if nextcloud already has an integrated solution though. Unfortunately it only supports Nextcloud up to v16. level 1. BUT my new issue that seems to have sprung out of talking about this issue was that I am having trouble getting NextCloud to sync properly. Click Run or Start. I was saying that your “solution 1” was viable. I think you’re incorrect on these two points. So I tried to diable not needed mods. The context of all these questions is of a vanilla install of NextCloud 13.

(…) There was something done about it but some time ago e.g. To finally solve your issue, cant you use webdav in syncthing too? the “files on my desktop linux machine that is hosting the files” is the “backend file system” i am referring to. 4. WordPress, MediaWiki, Roundcude on the server are much more faster. I think where he and I would disagree is with how well Nextcloud does at keeping up with changes to external storages. 2 rclone config 1 year ago.

After saving the file, you can mount your Nextcloud share with: mount ~/nextcloud. See Adding files to External Storages. I think you’re incorrect on these two points. Interesting detail: If i use MY-DYN-DNS-DOMAIN/remote.php/dav/files/USER instead of IP/remote.php/dav/files/USER, it works. As long as you know you are messing with things behind Nextcloud’s back, and can take responsibility for scanning them before having Nextcloud interact with them again, I can say this causes relatively few issues. I’m not really supposed to mess with the files in the external storage, but as long as I am aware of how it might mess with things and let the cron job scan for stuff in between my changes, I should be basically okay. When i want to mount an usb drive as external storage i got the issue, that every user has the permission to see (means read+write) the folders and files of other users. Click Run or Start. I use Seafile to mount my Archive drive to my laptop. You can use the Network Drive function built into Windows to access your cloud files. Enable external storage in nextcloud. Try it a while and watch how well (or bad) Nextcloud keeps sync by itself. None of these are possible solutions. As said there is no manual sync needed then, as this should be done by Nextcloud automatically on access. Would this be possible? After setting up my Ubuntu Server as a home server I wanted to make Nextcloud mount my network shared folder so I could alter files through the Nextcloud interface.. First I installed the Nextcloud removable media snap with, sudo snap connect nextcloud:removable-media. Here are my loaded Apache2 mods… maybe I need one more? Comments and share links may or may not work after you move or rename things. I use Seafile to sync my laptop and desktop. No my intention was to use SFTP to mount a archive HDD that was too large to fit on my laptop. Sounds like I won’t even really be using the sync client on my laptop at all. Too busy. Configure Database data to be on the USB drive (optional). As stated on my last post and also others clarified: According to performance it does not make much sense to access the external protocol data via Nextcloud. After we set up Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi in the first part of this tutorial series, in this section we want to mount a hard disk into the Raspberry Pi to have more space for the cloud. level 1. It’s running fine with the inluded SSD in the host. If doing so possible but will likely cause syncing headaches, then it seems my only solution is to do this: Change BACKUPDAYS to a desired number of days to take each backup. Just to be clear, I’m not directly manipulating any files that are under the var/www/nextcloud data folders etc. Figure 5 - Make note of the UUID of the drive. If you want to make use of Nextclouds share features for all the data, then indeed (like the others stated) it should be easiest to keep everything Nextcloud internally, skip Syncthing and use webdav respectively Nextcloud clients to access the data from notebook. Emphasis mine. Hello to everyone, i’m running nextcloud on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with apache on a hyper-v host. And you can access the external folder via the related protocol (SMB, SFTP) or the SyncThing client respectively. From what I’ve read syncing is pretty straightforward. But this would lead to all the files being duplicated, once inside Nextcloud server data folder, once inside client data folder. I am not sure how SyncThing works, if it’s similar to Nextcloud, having an own data index, or an opened protocol, but in case you can then add that folder via external storage to Nextcloud. There are ways to manually force that via occ command, but you don’t want to do that always. Once I finish getting these things backed up on an external drive, I will try method 1 again with a clean slate and see how stuff goes from there. Create a directory to mount the drive, and mount it. access_compat_module (shared) I figured that out. You’re saying this is so because the documentation says “Nextcloud may not always be able to find out what has been changed remotely (files changed without going through Nextcloud), especially when it’s very deep in the folder hierarchy of the external storage.” and what that means is that sometimes there are such deeply nested folders they might not get covered by the cron job correctly. Change DATADIR to your data location in the mount point. obsolete oc_filecache entries just added up, leading to a very large database table…. Now that you have got your mount working and running on startup you can utilise your cloud storage as if it were native to your server. Create a bind mount (symlinks won't work and hard links are not allowed in /media) to where your data is. We have to use /media because that is the directory that the removeable-media plug allows the nextcloud snap to access. I appreciate Nextcloud and I’ve set-up a server onto my home Raspberry Pi2b using Syncloud and i’ve installed Nextcloud client (Windows 64 bit) in my PC. Okay so a couple of things, I want to make sure I’m understanding, and tell me which of these things I’m getting right or wrong. That said, this INotify app, if I understand it correctly, will run the same occ command that your cron job would, and only when it detects changes. I’m hoping to get this polipeline finished up today. which meant that the Nextcloud Snap would be able to access removable media (eg; anything mounted under /media). But this would lead to all the files being duplicated, once inside Nextcloud server data folder, once inside client data folder. Maybe this might be a possible solution for you: where is the URL to your Nextcloud server. Nextcloud can also seamlessly access files on (s)FTP, SharePoint systems and more.

We recommend configuring the background job Webcron or Cron (see Defining background jobs) to enable Nextcloud to automatically detect files added to your external storages. Because I wanted to have the ability to locally edit files on the desktop that is also running the server. So the solution is to run the cron job on whatever schedule suites you. Not sure if Syncthing then is the best solution to keep those in sync between desktop and notebook. And this is just the default cron job right? and then a cronjob on nextcloud would have to run in order to reindex the changes that had been made to those folders. Nextcloud doesn’t have a build-in function to directly access a Google drive. Put nextcloud into maintenance mode. 1. share. This depends on the external storage type, as for example SMB/CIFS has some optional configuration to keep it up to date, but is unworkable without either that or the cron scan. @wizdude @Reiner_Nippes Sorry to both you guys, but I wanted to make sure I understood the situation correctly. So that I can have local manipulation of the files on my desktop, I mount the Seafile server files to the desktop local folders using a Seafile virtual drive.

As that becomes more broadly available, the above answer will be obsolete. when i try to set up the network drive via the command line, like in your first link, in windows 10, i always get “system error 1244 user not authenticated” . – I am confused when you say this: “The problems with this approach are pointed out by @FadeFx, and I agree with his suggestion to use WebDAV or Nextcloud sync rather than behind-the-scenes stuff you want, but again, I’ve done what you want without losing anything.”. i would avoid doing this. And I was told in this thread it was because I was directly manipulating these files locally on my desktop server in their local folders which were mounted as external folders to NC. I had jobs that ran more often and/or scanned more locations, but I changed those other folders so they aren’t external storage anymore. This is one of various methods available for accessing your cloud account on your computer, as explained on our general NextCloud support page. obsolete oc_filecache entries just added up, leading to a very large database table…. That issue is covered. 2 major reasons I wanted to use NextCloud.

Put nextcloud into maintenance mode. This would create a performance hit though and if I’m going to do that I kind of think I might as well just use Seafile. Yeah and I also read many cases where these external storage, dependant on the type, does not work perfect and Nextcloud might sync them either slow or delayed. I think merging both together will break the setup. just for the record, problems may not occure by adding files via smb or any other external file transfer protocol, but they may occure when moving files inside your nextcloud which already have share links for example or are shared with other users on the system. This is where I was ambiguous. Apologies for the wrong info then. Also webdav is not limited to local network like samba. [x] Use WebDav to mount instead of sftp. Modifying the files in your Linux home folder, or syncing them with SyncThing from Windows, is exactly the same as directly messing with files in /var/www/nextcloud/data from Nextcloud’s standpoint. Thank you everyone for the help! Go back to Plugins and open the drop-down menu right for the NextCloud jail. Powered by Discourse, best viewed with JavaScript enabled. I would request if / how it is possible to have for Nextcloud the same feature of “virtual disk” availabe for pCloud. Not sure how this is technically done, but it seems to be a method with way less overhead than files:scan , but with the downside of not 100% reliable sync state. Cant say something about seafile, but 1. and 2. will work and I think you have to try out which method suits you best. After saving the file, you can mount your Nextcloud share with: mount ~/nextcloud. I made sure thate the windows registry entry is 2 and accepts ssl and no ssl. I was talking about what you’ve dubbed solution 2; using WebDAV to work with the files even on your Linux workstation. I must confess… when I installed NextCloud I accidentally enabled all installed Apache2 mod. my login to NextCloud on my own Server (Ubuntu 16.04, 2GB RAM, Xeon 1245) is very low. The client would then not need to sync the changed/added files to the server, but just need to trigger the database to recognize that changes, just if you would changes files on a real external client. enoch85 changed the title new nextcloud hyper-v vm - Your data directory is invalid Ensure there is a file called ".ocdata" in the root of the data directory ZFS doesn't mount the second drive all the times [POSSIBLE SOLUTION AVAILABLE] May 1, 2020 Some of the storage technologies supported in Nextcloud include NFS and local storage as well as scalable, multi-bucket capable object storage like S3 and SWIFT compatible and CIFS/Windows Shares.

This page explains how to set up your NextCloud files to be accessed and modified as a network drive on Windows. I didn’t mention anything about WebDAV vs SFTP for the remote mount. As I’ve been saying since my first post, your solution 1 is also viable, just not a setup I chose to keep once I had it. Doing so screws up the sync process for NextCloud? Ah, and i had to use the path and syntax from there as well, as the path in nextcloud settings seems to not work on windows, but i could use it on android using solid explorer. I first thought you could just install the Nextcloud client on the server as well. English is hard. Data is on an external HDD. Btw regarding the not found message, i had similar problems, but found out that you have to change something in registry. Wellll… Now nextcloud simply won’t connect at all. He’s also correct that the cron job running. Jep, if a regular occ files:scan is okay for ones needs (although it takes quite much time, thus leads to larger delay), then it is not a huge issue to do local changes, as long as the file IDs are not used by any other Nextcloud app (than simply files app). It is just no intended that server and work desktop are on the same machine. A process like this however might work better, correct? No my intention was to use SFTP to mount a archive HDD that was too large to fit on my laptop.

If you care about speed, user the related clients to access/mount those directly to your notebook and work place. Configure Database data to be on the USB drive (optional). The client on my laptop can’t connect. I can say in practice that can lead to a very poor user experience, so the cron job is indeed well recommended.

Your consent page appears when Nextcloud makes a successful connection. or perhaps a 4th: Not sure how this is technically done, but it seems to be a method with way less overhead than files:scan, but with the downside of not 100% reliable sync state. That’s still what I’d suggest as the most stable option, but the choice is yours to make. Note that within the desktop client you can choose which folders to sync and which to skip. I installed nextcloud on my raspberrypi 3 using this link.Everything is working pretty well except I don't like the UX of having all the extra storage space coming from the "External Storage" add-in, since it means that everyone now has to know to put all of their files in a designated folder. Up to 15sec! I just wanted to make the point clear, that everything that you want to share/sync with another method then Nextcloud internally, needs to be accessed by/attached to Nextcloud only as external storage, even if you want to manually edit local files within a share folder. Also, internal vs external files may have different handling when it comes to apps other than the Files app, but seem to be exactly the same for that purpose at least. Click Run or Start. Also the database fills up with obsolete entries and I am not sure how well Nextcloud cleans this up automatically. I’ve personally never had it keep up to date with a local external without using the cron job, regardless of the “scan on every access” setting. WebDAV configuration in Windows: If you use the native Windows implementation, you can assign Nextcloud to a new unit.The assignment to a unit allows us to browse the files stored on a Nextcloud server in the same way as files stored on a mapped network drive would.. occ:files --scan just scans the Nextcloud internal data directory.
