On Sunday I set up a self-hosted Nextcloud server on the Raspberry Pi, using a spare USB flash drive for storage. This tutorial made it a relatively easy process to do, for a non-tech person, although I did make an error along the way that required going through and checking everything a couple of times.

I can now access the files stored on the server from my home network. Next stop, set up remote access.

At this stage it’s a case of see how it works out. The exercise is all an experiment at the moment anyway, to see what’s possible. I may try setting up a P2P system to see if that works better for me.
