Possible merge with owncloud

[[Moved from Talk:Nextcloud -- Rdeckard (talk) 13:41, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm thinking many of the installation and configuration steps are identical between Nextcloud and Owncloud. We could possibly merge these two articles. There is some good info here that may be missing at Owncloud. I think unless there are drastic differences they should be combined. We could note any differences in the main article. -- Rdeckard (talk) 01:52, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Good idea. Are you offering to take point? Graysky (talk) 01:58, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Sure. It actually looks like many of the sections are identical (were copied). I'll work on it. -- Rdeckard (talk) 13:00, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Wait, shouldn't we create a new page merging the content, then setup redirects from 'owncloud' and 'nextcloud' to that new page? To me, the unified page would would allow for either package to be installed from one read without having all the clicking between pages like I see you have started to do. Graysky (talk) 13:22, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Right. That was temporary until I got everything merged piece-by-piece. It all now goes to ownCloud where both programs are treated. -- Rdeckard (talk) 13:36, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
OK, if you're finished, I might take a look at further refining the unified page, but I don't want to deal with potential content collisions if we are both editing simultaneously :) Graysky (talk) 13:42, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Go for it! I'm done with it for the morning. Thanks! -- Rdeckard (talk) 13:44, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
I Realize I am a bit late on this, but the fact that Nextcloud forked from ownCloud, wouldn't it have been advantageous to keep them separate as we don't know how long the install processes will remain the same / similiar? --TheFlyingFool (talk) 13:57, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
We may have to revisit this again. But for now the setup and configuration are nearly the same. Personally I think the owncloud/nextcloud manuals do a great job with the details, so we should refer to them more often. If and when the installation process here diverges, we'll consider splitting again. -- Rdeckard (talk) 13:50, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Switch to cron from AJAX

The ownCloud 9.1 Server Administration Manual on "Defining Background Jobs" states cron as the preferred method for executing regular tasks. It also states that AJAX is "...the default option. Unfortunately, however, it is also the least reliable." The downside being AJAX requires regular visits to the page to trigger the background job. --Koopa (talk) 21:37, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Versions of nextcloud from 12 and up suggests that both cron and systemd can be used, and I see no point in even mentioning cron, since it's a whole software piece that's missing from arch by default, and adding it to this article contributes nothing. Systemd should be used by default with Arch to integrate well with other parts of the OS, and not to confuse users with multiple scheduling tools. NeoTheFox (talk) 10:53, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Uploaded file size limitation

The article is missing raising file size limitation. Current max file size with the provided configs seems to be 512MB - 2GB depending on what you use to upload.

This seems to be set in /usr/share/webapps/nextcloud/.user.ini for the web side, /tmp needs to be as big as all concurrent file uploads, and possibly more.

Documentation is here:

Am planning to figure this out and add it to the article sometimes in the future, but if someone does it before me I won't be mad.
