I’m new to the forum and relatively new to DYI computers. I built a few systems in the past year and have been so pleased by the performance that I have decided to build my own little Nextcloud server. I’ll be using a small win10 system that I just built (I know I’m in Linux land but I’ll be using win10). The specs are humble because all I want it to do is be a dropbox replacement server for me and me alone. This build features the new AMD Athlon 200GE APU, A Gigabyte B350 itx MoBo, 8gb of Crucial Balistix RAM, a small Corsair M.2 SSD for the OS, and two 2tb Seagate barracudas running in raid 1.
My question has to do with the set up. I’ve heard it was easy enough but I cant find easy to understand information for the install and setup process (especially in win10). I mean, I downloaded the “Nextcloud server” download and can’t even tell what the heck file to even install! The file that Nextcloud directed me to download has hundreds of files in it and I can’t find the executable. It kind of feels as if Nextcloud doesn’t want me/people to use their tool.
Has anyone set this up before and are you willing to send me some pointers or direct me to some directions? Again I just want to set up a single user server, that I host and then access from 2-3 other machines. I hate goolge and would like to stop using them as much as possible. I would also like to stop paying dropbox $100 a year for cloud access. Help me do this!
