Deploy NextCloud on Centos

Nextcloud is a suite of client-server software  for creating and using file hosting services. It is free and open source. You can share one or more files and folders on your computer, and synchronize them with your Nextcloud server. Place files in your local shared directories, and those files are immediately synchronized to the server and to other devices using the Nextcloud / ownCloud Desktop Sync Client, Android app, or iOS app.

Installation & Configuration :

Apache installation:

 #yum install –y httpd

 #systemctl  start httpd

#systemctl enable httpd
#vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
 ServerAdmin  [email protected]_host
 ServerName  your_host:80
 AllowOverride All
 DirectoryIndex index.html  index.cgi index.php
 ServerTokens Prod
 KeepAlive On
#systemctl    httpd    restart

#firewalld-cmd  –permanent   –add-service=http


Php installation:-

# yum -y install php php-mbstring php-pear  php-mysql

# vi /etc/php.ini

#date.timezone = "Asia/Kolkata"

# systemctl restart httpd

MariaDB Installation:-

# yum-y install mariadb-server

# vi/etc/my.cnf

bind-address =
# systemctl start mariadb

# systemctl enable mariadb
# mysql_secure_installation



In order to log into MariaDB to secure it, we'll need the current

password for the root user.  If you've just installed MariaDB, and

you haven't set the root password yet, the password will be blank,

so you should just press enter here.

Enter current password for root (enter for none):

OK, successfully used password, moving on...

Setting the root password ensures that nobody can log into the MariaDB

root user without the proper authorisation.

# set root password
 Set root password? [Y/n]


New password:

Re-enter new password:

Password updated successfully!

Reloading privilege tables..

 ... Success!

By default, a MariaDB installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone

to log into MariaDB without having to have a user account created for

them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation

go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a

production environment.

# remove anonymous users

 Remove anonymous users? [Y/n]


 ... Success!

Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'.  This

ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

# disallow root login remotely
 Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n]


 ... Success!

By default, MariaDB comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can

access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed

before moving into a production environment.

# remove test database
 Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n]


 - Dropping test database...

 ... Success!

 - Removing privileges on test database...

 ... Success!

Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far

will take effect immediately.

# reload privilege tables
 Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n]


 ... Success!

Cleaning up...

All done!  If you've completed all of the above steps, your MariaDB

installation should now be secure.

Thanks for using MariaDB!
