How I sync my Nextcloud with an S3 bucket using Drone CI and rclone

Published on in 👨‍💻 Dev

A few days ago, an OVH data center went up in flames and was completely destroyed. This reminded me that it is important to store backups in another place on earth if possible, so better not in the same data center as the server that might burn down.

Nextcloud Notes

Published on in 🔗 Links

Nextcloud Notes is my favorite note-taking app that allows me to sync notes across devices using my Nextcloud instance. I don’t like to limit my notes to just one computer, I need to be able to access them from anywhere, whether that’s my desktop computer, my laptop or my phone. And I choose a self-hosted Nextcloud, because then I can also choose any other file editor to edit the notes.

I’m currently “managing” (or better say storing) my photos using Nextcloud. Whenever I take photos with the camera, I copy them to a YEAR/MONTH based folder structure. Also the photos from my phone get automatically uploaded to a folder with all phone photos.

My storage setup

Reply to: A question by Henrique Dias

Since I use many different devices and want to access the same files from all of them, I run my “own cloud” at home with an Odroid-HC2 (a Raspberry 4 or similar device should work just as well). A 2 TB NAS hard disk (Seagate Ironwolf) is connected to the HC2, where all files are stored. Using Docker I have installed Nextcloud for files (documents, photos, etc.) as well as Gitea (code repositories). Encrypted incremental backups are done daily at night using restic and uploaded to Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage (they are quite cheap and now also have a European data center).

Nextcloud is my favorite cloud

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I have just updated my Nextcloud install from Nextcloud 16 to Nextcloud 17. It’s a Docker-based installation on my Odroid HC2, which I use for a lot of self-hosted softwares. (Thanks to Docker I can forget about all things PHP!)
