This VM is based on the same code as the original Nextcloud VM. In the same way as our other VMs, this also auto-updates to the latest version upon first boot when running the setup script. This VM is pre-installed with a 500 GB ZFS formatted drive for the data, which is mounted on a separate volume in the VM for easier management and backup. The file is in. OVA format for installation in VMware and VirtualBox. It can also be converted to run on other hypervisors. The file size is around 2-3 GB before it’s extracted. Please check the full setup instructions here.
Production ready: Yes

Installed it on QNAP 451+ with Virtualization Station 3.
At first I had some problems with the script, but Hansson IT fixed it and I had a successful automated installation and a ready to go virtual Nextcloud Server running.
Before I tried a lot of methods to bring Nextcloud to QNAP … qpkg-packages, Docker-Container, manual installation with Qapache, but they all had problems with stability and filesynchronization to the NAS.
But now everything works perfect.
I have a stable 2 TB Virtual Ubuntu Server that’s stores the Nextcloud files direct in its filesystem and it is independent from the QNAP OS.
And I can make Snapshots of the Virtual Ubuntu Server with the QNAP Virtual Station.
The programming is very good work and the price is worth it …
