The latest release of NextCloudPi is out!
This release updates to the latest 12.0.3 version of Nextcloud.
Other than that, the most important addition to NextCloudPi is a new shiny setup wizard.
While ncp-web is really powerful and allows you to tweak many aspects of NextCloudPi, it can still be daunting to for a non technical user. In order to improve towards the goal of making self hosted Nextcloud available to everyone, we now provide step by step question based autoconfiguration wizard.
We are also excited to announce support for duckDNS which was a long time requested feature, contributed by stratacast.
As usual, there have been many fixes and enhancements. I would like to thank everyone that was involved.
Last but not least, please download through bitorrent and share it for a while to help keep hosting costs down.
This new release brings security, performance improvements and more. See the release announcement.
Access through nextcloudpi.local
If you are using an mDNS capable operating system, you won’t have to worry about your Raspberry Pi’s IP anymore. Just type nextcloudpi.local to access your personal cloud. The multicast DNS protocol will resolve the IP address without having to setup any DNS provider or any other configuration.
This is supported by default by Debian and Ubuntu. In Arch Linux you will have to install the mdns-nss package and configure /etc/nsswitch.conf like this.
If you are using Windows you may have to install Bonjour Print Services for Windows to make the .local domains work.
Easy Setup Wizard
Look at how easy it is to setup NextCloudPi now! It can be accessed through
This is the first release of the wizard and it’s considered the minimum viable working version. More enhancements will be pushed soon. Thanks Pantelis for most of the frontend.
New duckDNS provider for Dynamic DNS
We now have support for a new DDNS provider, contributed by Stratacast.
It is a common task to configure a static IP for your NextCloud instance, so this will ease a common setup scenario. You can re-enable DHCP by deactivating it again.
Sometimes we copy files externally, from a USB, from our computer, through NFS or SAMBA. We need to use nc-scan in order to make Nextcloud aware of our new files, but often we find that we cannot delete them or modify them because they have the wrong permissions.
This will fix the permissions for all our files.
There is a reported bug that prevented Let’s Encrypt be completely installed for this release. The fix will be pushed as soon as it gets fixed upstream.
edit: fixed in v0.31.6
