Connect Your Linux Computer#
Connect using the Nextcloud App#
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.
Connect using WebDAV#
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
