In this walk-through we will demonstrate the basic steps used to install NextCloud on Azure.
This walk-through will include:
1) Create the Virtual Machine running Ubuntu
2) Install snap & NextCloud via snap on the Virtual
3) Configure Static IP with DNS / FQDN.
4) Configure Firewall rules.
5) Configure HTTPS with lets Encrypt
6) Test the the NextCloud instance is accessible.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install snap
sudo snap install nextcloud
sudo nextcloud.enable-https lets-encrypt
Keep in mind this is only a basic install and will need to
be secured using best security practices etc. If enough demand, we might do a
future walk through on how to secure your public facing systems.
The HendGrow site & YouTube channel was created to share knowledge by sharing how-to guides, book reviews, general knowledge etc, with the aim to empower the reader, viewer with the information to implement various solutions on their own or gain knowledge on various topics. Maybe you wondering what that book or topics is about, could be looking for a free firewall solution to protect the family or business. Have decided to open a store and need an open source web or retail Point of Sale (POS) system. The HendGrow site and channel provides walk-throughs on these and various other topics. The topics are either directly from our subscriber requests or derived from solutions we have implemented, that we believe could add value to the community. It’s our way to give back and hopefully help a few people along the way. If only one person gets value out of the how-to / walk-through guides then to us the effort was worth it.
