NextCloudPi brings NC 12.0.2, autoupdates, update notifications and more

The latest release of NextCloudPi is out!

This release updates to the latest 12.0.2 version of Nextcloud.

The main focus has been to provide some integration between NextCloud and NextCloudPi, and to simplify management.

Also, the web interface has received several improvements, even though there is still a lot to do.

As usual,  there have been many fixes and enhancements. I would like to thank everyone that was involved.

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 12.0.2

 

This version seems to be a minor update with only fixes, according to the changelog.

Update notifications

 

With this feature we will no longer need to log in through SSH or open the web interface to check wether there is a new update available. Whenever there are updates, we will receive a desktop notification

 

 

In case we missed it, the messages can be found in the notification dropdown

 

 

Autoupdates for NextCloudPi

 

 

Simple and easy. Just activate to install new NextCloudPi versions automatically as they come out. We will be notified in the same way as before.

 

 

This does not affect Nextcloud, only the NextCloudPi system: web interface, extras, and so on.

 

ncp-web improvements

Accessing the web interface will now tell us what version we are using, and wether there are updates available. Also, activated extras are marked, just like in nextcloudpi-config. These are the highlights among other internal improvements.

  1. This is really great. I’m a part of your target group. I work in IT and am comfortable enough with this kind of thing to be able to learn how to manage it eventually, but do not have the time (or desire) to do so.

    Having a mostly plug-n-play (and becoming more and more so as time goes on) option to use with a $35 device is fantastic. It’s made me finally make the jump. Through the browser interface DDNS was easy, no-ip was easy, LetsEcrypt was easy, moving ncdata from sdcard was easy (as was formatting and moving to another, larger second drive after the fact), and much more.

    So far I’ve only run into one question that I couldn’t find an easy answer to. Is there currently a way to shutdown the device properly without using ssh? (I.e., through the web interface, etc).

    Thanks for all your work.

    1. Hello,

      That’s good to hear! Actually I had it on my list, and also enabling SSH and more, but still haven’t had the time to do so. Also, some friend from the community had the same idea and there is a ‘feature request’ on github (see link at the end)

      Feedback and ideas are welcome to continue improving, so I suggest that you post any ideas directly on github

  2. Will there be a video guide at anytime i have installed this 3 times , i can log into my nextcloud only from my internal ip ,everytime i try to us my “no-ip ” it does not find it.. I am also running 2 other raspberry pi3 servers at the same time one is for minecraft and the other is my website, could this be my problem ?

    1. Hi,

      That is a good idea, it will make things easier. Maybe some generous user can do it I don’t have time. I would wait a little bit though, as the setup will be soon improved again. 😉

      For your technical problems…. copypaste!
