So this LOOKS #awesome .  I confess I have not yet got it to work on a VM under Windoze 10 (I got a login, but not one that made any sense...). An HTTPS://nextcloud on my self-hosted server is my NECESSARY goal.

I am going to stick with this and try an install on a real, fresh Ubuntu 14.04 LTS set-up to see if I can get that to work. But I wanted to share this link since it has so much potential. GOOD LUCK to anyone who gets this to work, and please post any tips for those dumb schmucks (i.e. me!) who are still trying to figure this out.

I am loving the concept of #NextCloud  :-)

Nice to hear it is working out. We'd like to have a 'official' docker container, but that would require an image multiple people work on to ensure swift security responses even if somebody gets hit by the proverbial bus...

Anyone else experiencing excessive app-opening delays on the MS Outlook app for android? It crashes, and is so painfully slow at times. Thinking of ditching it altogether - or is it just me? Running on Nexus 6p

So I am playing with NextCloud since the first version (version 9 - to match OwnCloud) has been released. I installed it in an Ubuntu 16.04 VM using Snappy and I get a working version first time (HTTP connection - not yet figured out how to set-up HTTPS), so it's a start. I am going to play with this for some time and install it on a full Ubuntu 16.04 install (rather than VM) to see how it goes. I have one important question: does anyone know if using Snappy is a wise way of installing Next Cloud or should I work through the manual installation method via command line?

Hi:

I want to set-up my own OwnCloud server at home. It needs to be secure. I can't afford Red Hat linux (the recommended distro). Can anyone suggest an alternative? I am most familiar with Ubuntu but am happy to upgrade (would like good to know why Distro XYZ is better than Ubu if possible to help me make intelligent decisions).

I prefer a GUI Distro even though this is primarily for a home server (would be nice to dual-purpose a PC).

Any Verizon users got their 6p to work internationally? VZ told me my device is "not eligible" for their global plan. I have the right contract (post-paid) but the device is shown as being not eligible. I checked with online support staff and they said the same thing.

I know I can buy a local SIM, but I prefer to not do that. I could buy a cheap phone that does work internationally and get my # transferred to that for a week, but it seems so unnecessary.

What do I do to get my VZ service to work in a major European country?

That's the plan my wife got signed up for as well. The daily fee is actually a connection fee depending on where you're at and how much the local wireless carriers are charging Verizon for you to use their network. In Mexico it was only a $2 a day charge

+Swapnil Bhartiya Many months ago, you threatened the world with a video/blog/posting of how to make an OwnCloud server from scratch.

I REALLY NEED my own cloud server. I need HTTPS connections (secure protocols) but I am utterly hopelessly confused by the community postings that are supposed to show us how to set this up. I can maybe put a man on Mars before I can set up my own secure personal cloud file server. I can and do run Ubuntu as a desktop (when I am not on Windoze), but my goodness, I need my own cloud.

Can you help?

FYI - so anyone using their Verizon 6p internationally:

I just returned from Paris. My phone worked as advertised - unlimited calls, text and my 6GB data plan worked overseas for just $10/day. The phone and SMS was rock-solid, but data was very poor - really slow, if you were lucky to get anything at all. If you need a lot of data in Paris then make other plans. I was hopping from one wifi hotspot to another for more time than I wanted to, but if I was patient, then the "1G" service (it seemed a lot slower than even 3G...) would still work for me. :)

I could get navigation to work (which was a god send) but not much more than that. Overall though, I am very happy with the way the 6p worked internationally on VZ.

I am a noob to trying to run my own cloud server. I personally found this useful, in case others are in the same boat as me...

I don't know if this is a good way to install NextCloud - but at least it works.

I think with Snap you can't change the configuration, so you get what you get. I have however successfully installed nextcloud in Ubuntu and got it to work with ssl. I am liking this a lot, but still have a lot to learn before I trust this with my real data over the internet.

I have no idea about the nginx question, sorry.

Well I had a pleasant surprise today. I am re-configuring my KNOX partition today to get ready for some travel, and #SAMSUNG  (and #MICROSOFT ) have added some cool apps to the KNOX app store -   #OFFICE  apps have been included - so I now have Excel, PowerPoint, Word and most usefully, #OneNote  in my KNOX container all linked to my Office365 account. Outlook is not in the Knox store, but the native email app is arguably better anyway.

This is really super. I dumped S-Note ages ago (being as Samsung doesn't update it) so having OneNote available to me in KNOX is just brilliant.. I now have a very functional mobile tablet and I can keep my work data extra-safe by locking it all up in a KNOX container.

I am the first to complain about #Samsung, so it's only fair I am the first to say a big THANK YOU for these very useful app additions.

There are also several other new apps in the Knox store, which is very encouraging.
