Setup your own cloud

The following explanation is just one option to setup a cloud system and takes only free software solutions into account.

Depending on your personal investments into the hardware you can develop even professional solutions, but we will start based on a usual old computer which will be transformed into a server with a Linux operating system and NextCloud software to establish the cloud services.

Let’s get started with a video

Installing Ubuntu as a Linux distribution will be shown on another page, but if you’re not sure which version you run and if you have already “SNAP” installed just enter the following commands:

sudo apt update

sudo apt install snap
