We don't maintain anymore an ownCloud installation nowadays, but we're interested to recreate a NextCloud instance, with backup.

I've asked on a brainstorming channel if someone is interested we take at Online some RPN storage, I didn't receive any answer, so I get nobody is looking for a solution to store a lot of Gb of documents here, hence the priority decrease.

Personally, I need to consolidate my documents in one place, and a NextCloud instance would be an added value, with the following goals:

  • have on a devserver the PRIMARY reference storage
  • sync with NextCloud for both scenarii where the reference storage is local laptop or devserver

So I'll move on this task with the following plan:

  • provide on devserver role /datacube ZFS user volumes using the model we did for Xavier in the past
  • create a small NextCloud instance on WindRiver with also a ZFS volume
  • deploy a NextCloud client on devserver role to sync between datacube and NextCloud
  • discuss again of what we can do by one-to-one sessions to have a better idea of the needs of everyone and every project
    • Xavier has content on devserver
    • Wolfplex had an ownCloud instance to share files: accounting, board and ASBL documents

Consolidating datacube volumes:

$ zfs set mountpoint=/datacube/docs/xcombelle arcology/datacube/xcombelle
$ rmdir /datacube/xcombelle
$ zfs rename arcology/datacube/xcombelle arcology/datacube/docs/xcombelle

Space disk we currently need:

$ cd /datacube/docs
$ du -h -d 1
7.3G    ./xcombelle
5.3G    ./dereckson
 13G    .

Next steps:

  • datacube ZFS volume for NextCloud
  • NextCloud configuration
