Through the last post, I have just guided everyone on how to install NextCloud on the computer. And today, I will guide you to use NextCloud to be able to manage users as well as install Extensions!
NextCloud basic interface
- Tab bar: This part is used to move through installed files and Extensions
- Extension: Set Status and Weather(by default will install these)
- Quick Access: This section is the quick access to File/Extension
- User bar: this section has user options (including settings, install more extensions, ..)
Instructions for uploading files
Step 1: Go to the file section above Tab bar
Step 2: Select the plus sign and select Upload File
Step 3: Select the File to upload and select Open
Add Extension for NextCloud
Step 1: You go to your NextCloud, select your avatar -> Apps
Step 2: Go to Feature App and find the Extension you need to install
Instructions for adding storage space for NextCloud
This will work mainly for people who have a Server with 2 databases or you run on a computer / Raspberry Pi and plug in a hard drive / USB, this is the way to add it.
Step 1: You go to MobaXterm (SSH of your server) and mount that drive (I use Raspberry Pi)
Step 2: You go to your NextCloud, select your avatar -> Apps
Step 3: Go to Feature App and find External Storage Support. By default it is disabled. Please enable if it is off!
Step 4: Select your avatar -> Settings
Step 5: Drag down the right sidebar and find External Storage in the Administration section
Step 6: You choose Add storage and select the one you want (mine is local storage)
Step 7: You write the path of the hard drive that needs more space for NextCloud and then click the checkmark on the right
Now you just need to go to the folder and you will see
Step 1: Select your avatar -> User
Step 2: Select New User in the top left corner
Step 3: Fill in the information of New User and select Add New User.
That’s it. Once done, you can give this user to the person you need to give so they can access your page.
