Connect Your Linux Computer¶
Download the client application from: https://nextcloud.com/install/
Most distributions do provide the Nextcloud client via their package managers. (e.g., Ubuntu, Arch Linux, Mint, …)
After starting the
nextcloudapplication, you will find it as a tray icon.
Add an account using your public server url, username and password. Further you can choose the target directory the files should be synced to.
Mounting Nextcloud using WebDAV can be done directly via most file managers, by adding a “remote server”.
Additionally you can mount your Nextcloud files using WebDAV via commandline and /etc/fstab by installing the davfs2 package.
To mount use:
mount -t davfs https://my.domain.tld/remote.php/webdav/ /mnt/target/path
