PostPosted: Thu Jul 07, 2016 2:55 am    Post subject: Nextcloud and Lighttpd Reply with quote

I have recently switched from Owncloud to Nextcloud. The following are my installation steps for Nextcloud and Lighttpd.

Reference URL's
https://docs.nextcloud.org/server/9/admin_manual/contents.html
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Owncloud
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Lighttpd
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/PHP
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Webapp-config
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1028396.html (my previous Owncloud and Lighttpd installation)

Nextcloud current version = 9.0.51

1. Add the following to package.accept_keywords:
Code:
app-admin/webapp-config ~amd64
dev-lang/php ~amd64
www-servers/lighttpd ~amd64
www-apps/nextcloud ~amd64

2. Install webapp-config
A.
Code:
emerge -av webapp-config

B. Modify /etc/vhosts/webapp-config
from
Code:
vhost_server="apache"

to
Code:
vhost_server="lighttpd"

3. Install webserver lighttpd (use -php)
Code:
emerge -av www-servers/lighttpd

4. Install Nextcloud server
A. Modify package.use
Code:
dev-lang/php fpm sqlite zip pdo xmlreader gd curl xmlwriter
app-eselect/eselect-php fpm

B. Install Nextcloud
Code:
emerge -av www-apps/nextcloud

5. Modify /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
Uncomment the following
Code:
server.document-root = var.basedir + "/htdocs"
server.errorlog      = var.logdir  + "/error.log"
accesslog.filename   = var.logdir + "/access.log"
include "mod_fastcgi.conf"

6. Modify /etc/lighttpd/mod_fastcgi.conf
Replace the existing code with the following:
Code:
server.modules += ("mod_fastcgi")
fastcgi.server = ( ".php" =>
  ( "localhost" =>
    (
      "host" => "127.0.0.1",
      "port" => "9000"
    )
  )
)

7. Modify /etc/php/fpm-php7.0/php.fpm.conf
A. Uncomment
Code:
error_log = /var/log/php-fpm.log

B. Add the following
Code:
user = clouddata
group = clouddata
env[HOSTNAME] = $HOSTNAME
env[PATH] = /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/var/www/localhost/htdocs:
env[TMP] = /tmp

8. Test lighttpd.conf
Code:
lighttpd-angel -t -f /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf

Should see something similar:
Code:
Syntax OK
lighttpd-angel.c.139: child (pid=26771) exited normally with exitcode: 0

9. Set the timezone
Add the following to /etc/php/fpm-php7.0/php.ini
Code:
date.timezone = America/New_York

10. Create cloud data group/user
Code:
groupadd -g 988 clouddata && useradd -g clouddata clouddata

11. Change ownership to lighttpd ***OPTIONAL***
Code:
chown -R lighttpd:lighttpd /var/www/localhost/

12. Change ownership to nextcloud (Nextcloud script)
Run nextcloud.sh
Code:
#. nextcloud.sh

13. Modify group
Add lighttpd to clouddata
Code:
clouddata:x:988:lighttpd

14. Start lighttpd & php-fpm
Code:
rc-update add lighttpd default && rc-update add php-fpm default && /etc/init.d/php-fpm start && /etc/init.d/lighttpd start

15. Test lighttpd in browser
A. The following will show a list of variables (see below for code)
Code:
http://localhost/info.php

or
B. The following will show the current group and user (see below for code)
Code:
http://localhost/whoami.php

16. Restart

17. Nextcloud setup
A. http://localhost/nextcloud
B. Select "Storage and Database" to change data location to /to/your/nextcloud/data (/to/your/nextcloud/data will be created, do not create!)
C. Create admin user and password
D. Select "Finish Setup" to complete setup
E. Setup other users and apps

18. Change file handling size (Can't be changed in GUI due to Lighttpd)
Modify /var/www/localhost/htdocs/nextcloud/.user.ini via root
From
Code:
upload_max_filesize=513M
post_max_size=513M

To
Code:
upload_max_filesize=16G
post_max_size=16G

19. Setup cron job
Code:
sudo crontab -u clouddata -e
*/15  *  *  *  * php -f /var/www/localhost/htdocs/nextcloud/cron.php

20. Trusted Domains issue - add server ip address
Modify /var/www/localhost/htdocs/nextcloud/config/config.php
From
Code:
array (
    0 => 'localhost',
),

To
Code:
array (
    0 => 'localhost','nextcloud.server.ip.address',
),


**********************************************************************************************

The following three files are to help setup Nextcloud.

1. Nextcloud script - change permissions for nextcloud
Code:
#!/bin/bash
ncpath='/var/www/localhost/htdocs/nextcloud'
htuser='clouddata'
htgroup='clouddata'
rootuser='root'

printf "Creating possible missing Directories\n"
mkdir -p $ncpath/data
mkdir -p $ncpath/assets
mkdir -p $ncpath/updater

printf "chmod Files and Directories\n"
find ${ncpath}/ -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0640
find ${ncpath}/ -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0750

printf "chown Directories\n"
chown -R ${rootuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/
chown -R ${htuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/apps/
chown -R ${htuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/assets/
chown -R ${htuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/config/
chown -R ${htuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/data/
chown -R ${htuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/themes/
chown -R ${htuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/updater/

chmod +x ${ncpath}/occ

printf "chmod/chown .htaccess\n"
if [ -f ${ncpath}/.htaccess ]
 then
  chmod 0644 ${ncpath}/.htaccess
  chown ${rootuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/.htaccess
fi
if [ -f ${ncpath}/data/.htaccess ]
 then
  chmod 0644 ${ncpath}/data/.htaccess
  chown ${rootuser}:${htgroup} ${ncpath}/data/.htaccess
fi

2. /var/www/localhost/htdocs/info.php - PHP info
Code:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

3. /var/www/localhost/htdocs/whoami.php - Tells who is the current group and user for Nextcloud
Code:
<?php
echo "User: " . exec('whoami');
echo "Group: " . exec('groups');
?>

Reserved for Nextcloud client when available.
For now the Owncloud client can be used but you will need to specify "nextcloud" in the server setup:
Code:
nextcloud.server.ip.address/nextcloud
