    great that you promote nextcloud. been selfhosting it for some years now and they always come up with great new additions. it's quite easy to setup using nginx, mariadb and coturn along with ssl for secure access, chat and videochats.

    The reason people use Google, Dropbox and others is specifically so that they don't have to do all this. So it's not quite an alternative to Google.

    I used to host a NextCloud for one very small client company (5 users, around 200k / 500GB files). It was PAINFUL! Never again.

    The client just randomly sometimes causes files to conflict. One single user using the system with a fast continuous internet connection, some files just random conflict. No changes from anyone else. Live editing of files with MS office off of the browser thankfully worked… sometimes… after a random plugin install. Reported to GH by many people; issue just ignored; GH nextcloud/desktop/issues/943
    Updating the windows client was scary, when it failed or something seemed like it was locked up re-syncing files was just not fun.
    Getting file locking to work was very annoying and I never figured out how to do it in the client.
    Setting up proper backups was super annoying and expensive (hosted in GCP, 500GB storage with daily backups for 1 month) and I lived in constant fear of ever having to restore anything

    Nextcloud App is really had and you know it! Too much tinkering, recurring, occurring bugs and shit going on.its slow even within home network. Rather use Google or syncthing.

    Linode looks amazing but not cheap. What i want is to replace my dropbox backup solution. Currently pay $30 (AUD) a month for 3TB… but sadly thats about $300 on Linode. 🙁

    Many people are not interested/ can't host their own servers. Are there any good public instances?

    I installed nextcloud after learning that we can only set up three devices with dropbox's free subscription.

    The annoying thing I've run in to with the Snap package is that when Canonical updates the snap (I hate not being able to do this on my own schedule), my configuration changes get reset.

    Maybe you could post a link to your video of the Ubuntu Server install and config in the description of this video? I searched through your videos on your channel and couldn't find it. Help me out here.

    I was thinking to have nextclown installed on a raspberry pi4 and use it as a photo backup machine, an alternative to Google photos. The last time I tried it didn't go so smoothly since the system was not that stable. Fingers crossed 🙂
