I am perhaps Continuing the discussion from Sync files nextcloud with a pool on truenas?:
Which was from 2020. However the thread came to a dead stop. I may have a similar question?
Let me thank you all, and particularly Tom for all the help. I watch the videos often and have an entire home lab based on many of the suggestions in the videos.
I have SyncThing on all my devices. I Sync to my TrueNAS as my main system file storage. However. I decided to install a nextcloud instance and virtual disk on my XCP-NG server. It runs VM of Ubuntu 22.04 with nextcloud. I used Jay’s (Learn linux TV) guide recently released to set it up. So far everything is running very well. I have automatic backups from XCP-NG NC VM > TrueNAS dataset for redundancy. Syncthing is not yet installed on this server. Before I do attempt??
Dear Forum users, I would like to sync data from SyncThing to NC data folders on internal storage of my dell server running XCP-NG. Most of my files are created on my devices and automatically synced to TrueNAS. I would like them also in folders on NC so I can share data via links and manage permissions to links, teams, etc. I would also like those with accounts on my NC to be able to UL their own data and have it sync to my devices. Is Syncthing (the tool I already have used for many years) a possible way?
Now I recall that I tried to do something like this back on NC 14, which was the last time I used NC with any regularity. I was not as skilled as a linux sys admin back then and probably didn’t understand a permissions issue or some other thing metadata issue. Perhaps I still do not grasp those things well. lol
I wonder if anyone has attempted this with success? What are the things to watch out for?
If I remember correctly I had issues with permissions, NC and SyncThing getting confused about versioning and the NC marinadb getting very confused how to make sense of the syncthing metadata as well as vice versa. Syncthing perhaps not sure how to handle files in NC? It was a while ago and try as I might I could not find my notes on this. All I do remember is that I had to give up on the idea above. My pictures and documents from my phone would not be synced to NC. To run both NC app and Syncthing app on my phone caused so much loss of battery life as to be impractical. Etc. I need the function of NC to interact with the data and the function of syncthing to get the data once manipulated to all of its destinations, including for backup and redundancy.
I am about to give it another go. I think we are on NC 24 now? It has clearly been a while. I am more skilled. Yet, it seems like a use case that someone may have attempted before? Would anyone care to steer me in the right direction? At least They are both FOSS, where there is a will there is a way? Hopefully?
Thanks to everyone
