Nextcloud 16 Installer (R6all)

Nextcloud is a safe home for all your data.
Access, share and protect your files, calendars, contacts, communication & more at home and in your enterprise.

Installation Instructions:

This version of Nextcloud allows the installation with either SQLite or MySQL as database backends. To select SQLite you don’t need to do anything special in the installer, just enter the credentials for your desired admin account. For MySQL please use the following steps:

  • Make sure you have MySQL installed and running. I recommend using the MySQL Installer but any other method that gives you a running MySQL database on the ReadyNAS will work. Just watch out for disk space usage when not using the MySQL Installer.
  • On the Setup page enter the credentials for the admin user as desired
  • Next click on the database selection item.
  • Switch to the MySQL/MariaDB tab
  • Enter the following details:
    • Database User: root
    • Database Password: <leave empty>
    • Database Name: nextcloud (or any name you fancy)
    • Database Host: localhost
  • That’s it 😉


NextCloud 16 requires PHP 7.2 or newer to be installed on your ReadyNAS. You can get the PHP 7.2 app here

Note: When upgrading from Nextcloud 14 you need to install the add-on for version 15 (available from the “My Account” page) first. If you never installed Nextcloud before you can use the version 16 add-on directly.
