Install Nextcloud on Ubuntu
I recommend you start with 2GB memory.
- Start by downloading Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
- Boot the server using the downloaded Ubuntu software.
- Choose your Language.
- Select Update to the new installer, to use the latest version of the installer.
- Select your Keyboard layout.
- Confirm that at least one Network connection is configured properly.
- You can typically leave Proxy address as blank.
- You can leave the default Mirror address.
- Select Use an entire disk for storage.
- Click Done, to confirm your Storage configuration, and click Continue to confirm your selection.
- Enter the following details:
- Your name: (e.g. Steven Pryer)
- Your server's name: (e.g. ubuntu-nextcloud)
- Pick a username: (e.g. steven)
- Choose a password:
- Select the option to Install OpenSSH server, so that you can remotely access your server.
- From the list of Featured Server Snaps, select nextcloud.
The installation will now be processed, and will typically take about a minute. Click Reboot when it's finished. Ubuntu will now take a few minutes to deploy itself with Nextcloud. Simply browse to your server's IP address to access Nextcloud.
