Seafile or other alternative to Nextcloud
Is Seafile any good? It's similar to nextcloud, but apparently faster etc. Mobile apps both have pretty bad ratings on the app stores. What would you host for yourself, friends and family, basic dropbox functionality is all I need. I have hosted Nextcloud in the past but it's a huge program with way too many tools, apps and a complicated way to update, the end result is often a slow and not very comfortable way to use the aforementioned basic dropbox functionality.

Running Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi without internet
Would self-hosting a Nextcloud instance locally without an internet connection be viable? Use case: Around 5 people need to share files over the network, collaborate on Office documents in real-time, use GitLab, and a To-do/Task management tool. Beyond the initial setup, does any of these requirements need an active Internet connection, or can we all connect to the Raspberry Pi server via Ethernet?

is selfhosting public stuff like XMPP, Email, ActivityPub, on a homeserver good for privacy?
if I have communications with someone through the internet with a homeserver. I would inevitably give out my IP address. Is that a bad thing? In my country they don't have services like that, RTCing would be a bit sluggish using available euro servers.

How much will it cost (per month) to maintain a NextCloud server?
and is there any detailed video about how to host it using windows 10?

I have been learning a lot thanks to Lemmy and the people behind it, so I wanted to contribute a bit back by making some easy-to-follow video tutorials. I have also made the same video in Spanish: As a beginner myself, I do have a level of concern that I might teach something incorrectly, or that I might expose others to security risks and liabilities. I hope that these concerns are not well-founded, but I am open to criticism!

What’s a fun project to work on with the Raspberry Pi?
I thought about using my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ as a NextCloud server, but research told me it would be too slow to be useful. Any cool useful projects I can do, without any extra purchases? I'm extremely low on money currently.

Anybody Knows of Any Competent Self Operating Options for Game Servers Aside from Pterodactyl 1.x (Deaf and Blind, cannot see clearly default interface)?
I am felt up with my Game Service shared provider's billing policies and I seriously trying to consider all options/help i might be able to get. Including trying to just rent a suitable VPS instead... Does anybody know anything else that might help me runs Minetest gaming servers? Or anybody here who might be able help me sort this out? Thanks you very much in advance!

Which of course doesn't checks all of the boxes. :( > > The issues?

[Question] Anyone know a selfhosted cloud gaming panel?

Home Server Relocating
I started self hosting with a home server last year, and had put it in a room in the house where there was an ethernet port. Last week, me and my dad wired up the house with ethernet ports and a switch and now I want to move my home server from it's current location to a different room in the house. Is there any sort of guidance or guide about how to properly move a server? I don't want to mess up my server since it is a repurposed old desktop. I also run Yunohost on it if that's important to know.

Distributed cloud storage?
Hello! I recently had issues with my self-hosted instance of Nextcloud so I started looking for an alternative to it. I would like something that could allow me to make a local network of shared files between devices I choose, if that makes any sense. I stumbled upon Syncthing but it doesen't seem what I had in mind: I understand that it replicates folders between devices, but I am looking for a way to distribuite files between machines. Again, like Nextcloud but without a central server to rely to. Do you know if something of that sort exists? Or if you have any other solution? Thank you. P.S. I am posting it here because it seems like some sort of self-hosting, but maybe I will cross-post it to the decentralized comunity.

Open-Source Self-Hosted Online Radio?
cross-posted from: > I found AzuraCast but it seems that it doesn't work wit FireFox and Safari, but only with chrome to listen to music, and the DJ is a bit weird to use. I also found BottledRadio but have no experience on how it works. Any other one you may know of or can advise how to solve/work with the ones above?

Are there any light projects I can run on a Raspberry Pi Zero?
I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W that is serving as my Pihole server, but that only uses about 10% of its very underpowered CPU, and I feel like I'm not getting my money's worth. Anyone have any lightweight project ideas I can run on it to use up more of its resources? Could I run BOINC limited to 50% CPU usage on it or is it too slow to complete jobs on time? Could I maybe seed torrents for popular Linux distros on it without the rather weak Wi-Fi chipset getting overwhelmed and bottlenecking the DNS server?

How do you deal with the non-static IP when hosting something from home?
I have a few single board computers at home that I want to try hosting some public facing stuff with, but what's the best way to deal with the fact that my home internet is not on a static IP? Would I have to host my site from a DynDNS domain and hope that when the IP changes, the DNS caches of users expire quickly enough to keep them connected?

Moving photos from iCloud to Nextcloud
Currently all my photos/videos are all stored in iCloud. I want to move these to my Nextcloud instance. The Nextcloud iOS app _does_ have a feature to automatically transfer an entire iCloud library to Nextcloud, but it's broken right now (and has been for several months, see [this issue]( Unfortunately it doesn't look like the iOS app developers are going to fix this any time soon. Instead, I downloaded my photos/videos from, and I now have them all in archives. But their structure is all all over the place. I don't think I can use a hacked-together script to convert them to a sane folder/file structure because nothing is dated. For example, I would want a simple structure like `/{year}/{month}/{day}/{images}`. But the iCloud archive's format is something like `/Photos/{images}`. Nothing is dated. Any ideas about what I could do? It looks like my only options are just to have all my old photos in an esoteric folder/file structure, and have new photos/videos properly sorted. But that isn't ideal. The only other option is to hold out hope that Apple eventually add an option, as they recently added a way to transfer to [Google Photos]( But I am not expecting them to add support for Nextcloud.

Hosting Recommendations
There seems to be a lot of options when it comes to companies to host with. Anyone have a favorite they'd rec to someone or companies to avoid? Or, alternatively, anyone have recommendations for things to host? Things you're glad your self-hosting or glad you aren't self-hosting?

Help with Jellyfin server
So I was able to install everything correctly, but I don't know what I'm supposed to do in order for people that don't have my same IP to see my files. I'd like to share my Jellyfin server with some friends so they can see movies there. I've already open the ports, but they can't still access them, I'm using elementaryOS Hera which is built on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS.

Dynamic Website on a Pi
Hi! So I'm using an open source RSS aggregator self hosted alongside my pi-hole. Anyone know how the basics of making a website go from static to dynamic work? What I want to do is add more RSS feeds from any device on my network and have the changes synced network-wide. Right now though, adding feeds is stored as a local cookie on each device separately. Here is the repository I'm looking at: Any ideas on how I can store the feeds info on the Pi instead?

Monitoring tools for services and resources?
Hello, Which tools do you use to monitor services that you have self hosted and also to monitor system resources?

RSS newsreaders allow you to focus on just the quality news you want to follow without the noisy website views with adverts and behavioural tracking. They allow you to consume vast amounts of information without distraction on your mobile phone or PC, with your progress synced. I'm comparing these two as I needed something that could be hosted at home on a free OpenMediaVault server using easy-to-install docker containers. So yes this could run on a Raspberry Pi, Intel NUC, or larger hardware. Funny thing is I'm using both still as I cannot declare a clear winner ;-) #selfhosting #FOSS #opensource #alternativeto #freshRSS #tinytinyrss #RSS #news #reading #inoreader #feedly #comparison

openmediavault is the next generation network attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, RSync, BitTorrent client and many more. Thanks to the modular design of the framework it can be enhanced via plugins. openmediavault is primarily designed to be used in home environments or small home offices, but is not limited to those scenarios.

Subtitle: Googling inevitably reveals that my problem is caused by a known bug triggered by doing [the exact combination of things I want to do]. I can fix it, or wait a few years until I don't want that combination of things anymore, using the kitchen timer until then.
