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

Nextcloud 15.0.5

This minor version jump only brings a bunch of fixes and small improvements but nothing major as expected. We can find more details in the changelog.

Remember that it is recommended to upgrade through nc-update-nextcloud instead of the native Nextcloud installer, and that we have the option to let NextCloudPi automatically upgrade by activating nc-autoupdate-nc

New documentation

The new documentation resides in, and is hosted in, which has nice support for languages. We are now in the process of moving the last details there and then we will shut down the current Wiki. Still the documentation is open access and we encourage all users to contribute with corrections and new sections, or maybe help translating into your native language.

Featuring six cores and 4GiB of fast memory, Gigabit Ethernet,USB3 and more, the RockPro64 is the latest from Pine64 and makes an attractive new hardware option for NextCloudPi


This new app will restore our files to any previously taken BTRFS snapshot, with nc-snapshot or nc-snapshot-auto.


Just a simple tool to update all outdated apps to the most recent version that is compatible with our instance.


Of course, the above can be done automatically so we have one less thing we need to pay attention to.


Normally NextCloudPi takes care of adding you IP and domain to the trusted domains list, but in advanced setups it can be handy to be able to configure different ones.


As the name indicates, sometimes we want to enable maintenance mode in order to do some system maintenance

  1. The text “nc-update-nc-apps” and “This new app will restore our files to any previously taken BTRFS snapshot, with nc-snapshot or nc-snapshot-auto.” should switch position 😉

  2. Hi, is it possible after update to 15.0.5 change from raspberry 3+ directly to a rockpro. My instance is running on a SSD AT USB. Or is a New setup necessary.

  3. Hello Nacho, hello all,
    276 days without restarting my NextcloudPi server, 276 days with no bug. Delighted to have migrated form hubiC storage service to my own personal cloud like a charm one year ago… THANK YOU for that great tool and its neat documentation.
    Recently read about “NextcloudPlus”… Thought of upgrading my NextcloudPi 13.0.2 (!) and its webUI/TUI v0.56.21 (!!)…
    Impossible via ncp-config nor raspi-config as major releases went out meanwhile…
    Thank you a lot in advance for letting me know how to perform upgrade (even manually).
    Keep up the great job.

  4. noob question to rockpro64 …

    at the moment i use an odroid hc2 with nextcloudpi and it works very fine.
    it is very simple to mount and use the hdd for data directory by ncp-config ssh or webinterface.

    are these functions available for sata-hdd connect to the rockpro64 PCIe x4 adapter ?



  5. Hi Guys.
    I’ve been trying for days trying to get a second USB external setup on my NCPI. I formatted the additional drive in NC-format to create a new label. As soon as I plug my original drive back in I cannot access NC. I try and move the DB and NCDATA folder in the config but gives me issues.
    Is there some documentation on a procedure how to do so? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Would love to get a second drive setup.

  6. Hello,
    I found your distribution. I only try it on Raspberry PI3, but if I tune it I will put it on Raspberry 4.
    But why am I writing. I did not find instructions on how to connect my home server to raspberry via smb shares. I’m running a RAID array there and I would like to redirect the data to be stored on my home server.

    Is there a way to do this, please?
    Thank you
