Please make yourself aware of the Fair Usage Policy. Directly pointing to Nextcloud to share your cloud storage will create extreme strain on your slot's disk and could cause a 24-hour ban on accessing your cloud storage. It is _your_ responsibility to ensure usage is within acceptable limits. Ignorance is not an excuse.

Nextcloud is a free and open-source suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. It was a fork of ownCloud, and it has been actively developed by some of the original developers of ownCloud. In contrast to proprietary cloud providers like Dropbox, Office 365, or Google Drive, Nextcloud enables users to deploy their own file hosting server and fully control their data.

For more information, visit Nextcloud's home page.

Troubleshooting FAQ for Nextcloud

I am unable to upload files more than the size of 10MB on Nextcloud. How to resolve it?

This is a default limitation of your Nginx instance, as it is not needed by most of our clients. Run the following command to your Slots' shell to be able to upload more than 10MB.

sed -i 's|client_max_body_size .*;|client_max_body_size 0;|g' "$HOME"/.apps/nginx/nginx.conf && app-nginx restart
