NextCloud on Raspberry Pi using Docker
In this tutorial , We are going to install “NextCloud on Raspberry Pi 3B Plus using Docker”
What is NextCloud ?
Nextcloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. It is functionally similar to Dropbox, although Nextcloud is free and open-source, allowing anyone to install and operate it on a private server.
In contrast to proprietary services like Dropbox, the open
architecture allows adding functionality to the server in the form of
applications and enables users to have full control of their data.
The original ownCloud developer Frank Karlitschek forked ownCloud and created Nextcloud, which continues to be actively developed by Karlitschek and other members of the original ownCloud team.
