How To Install and Configure Nextcloud

Nextcloud is an open source file sharing server that permits you to store your personal content, like documents and pictures, in a centralized location—much like Dropbox. Nextcloud returns the control and security of your sensitive data back to you, eliminating the need for a third-party cloud hosting service. In this tutorial, we will install and configure a Nextcloud instance on your server. Choose your operating system below to get started.
