RPi NextCloud Installation Issue

Hi folks,

I was trying to install Nextcloud on my Raspberry Pi 4. Wanted a cheaper option for cloud hosting data and PC backups.

I am running into the same issue that these people in the github link are having.

I cannot find a config file anywhere. And cannot proceed in the installation.

I was following this guide.

Hoping someone here might have a solution.

You need to add the path to the config file to your $PATH variable. Here’s a guide:

You could try just installing Nextcloud manually instead of using snaps.


It is not as convenient as the one-liner to install a snap, however, it will work and probably only take you an hour or two (if its your first time and or unexperienced with getting a LAMP stack). I’d consider this more worth it for your time budget instead of hours of troublehhsooting.


I am not sure how that works. How do I control $PATH while installing the SNAPD version?

How do I setup stuff like the domain and other components?

I am not that advanced to run Ubuntu Server version of Nextcloud. I was just looking for an easy fix to the snapd version.


This version makes it all very easy

To be fair, running your own Server never is as “easy” as one might think in the first place :wink:

That said, does the Pi Support Docker? Might be a medium Solution between completely rolling your own and using a snap. I’ve been running the NC Docker Container on my QNAP NAS for some time and it’s been stable and not making any issues… With Docker-compose, the setup should basically also be a one-liner.
