There are a ton of cloud storage providers out there including the large players: Dropbox, OneDrive, Apple Cloud and so on. Though some of these have pretty good security, the files in those storages are still accessible to the admins of said services – and in extension to governments and other third party actors.
Do I have anything to hide? No. Do I want the government or random hackers and script kiddies looking at my personal picture archives? No again. So a self-hosted solution is the way to go.
Enter Nextcloud, an ownCloud fork. I decided to run the Docker version behind an NGINX proxy server.
