NextCloudPi brings NC 12.0.1, periodic backups, data backups and security improvements

The latest release of NextCloudPi is out!

This release updates to the latest 12.0.1 version of Nextcloud. You can see the release notes for details.

Most of the work has been put into polishing and bug fixes, and some database security hardenings. Big thank you to everyone that reported things and helped make fixes possible.

The backup feature has been revamped, and we also welcome the addition of periodic backups.

NextCloudPi improves everyday thanks to your feedback. Please report any problems, or ask technical questions here. Also, you can discuss anything in the forums.

Last but not least, please download through bitorrent and share it for a while to help keep hosting costs down.

Nextcloud 12.0.1

Users of the old images can upgrade through the updater app in the admin page.

Another option would be to use nc-nextcloud and nc-init to upgrade your NextCloudPi to the latest version without losing the rest, but your configuration would be lost, and also your data if you didn’t move it.

Data backups

We can now select wether we want our data included in the backups, and we can set a BACKUPLIMIT maximum number of stored backups. The oldest ones will be deleted once we reach this limit, except when the limit is set to 0.

NextCloudPi will be smart enough to support backing up the data even if we moved it to with nc-datadir, and the same goes for nc-restore.

Periodic backups

We can schedule an automatic backup every BACKUPDAYS days, obeying the same number limit as before. Simple.

If you have two hard drives plugged in, then you can achieve some basic redundancy of the data by having the data directory in one, and periodically backing up to the other.
