Seafile or other alternative to Nextcloud
Is Seafile any good? It's similar to nextcloud, but apparently faster etc. Mobile apps both have pretty bad ratings on the app stores. What would you host for yourself, friends and family, basic dropbox functionality is all I need. I have hosted Nextcloud in the past but it's a huge program with way too many tools, apps and a complicated way to update, the end result is often a slow and not very comfortable way to use the aforementioned basic dropbox functionality.

Running Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi without internet
Would self-hosting a Nextcloud instance locally without an internet connection be viable? Use case: Around 5 people need to share files over the network, collaborate on Office documents in real-time, use GitLab, and a To-do/Task management tool. Beyond the initial setup, does any of these requirements need an active Internet connection, or can we all connect to the Raspberry Pi server via Ethernet?

is selfhosting public stuff like XMPP, Email, ActivityPub, on a homeserver good for privacy?
if I have communications with someone through the internet with a homeserver. I would inevitably give out my IP address. Is that a bad thing? In my country they don't have services like that, RTCing would be a bit sluggish using available euro servers.

Previously I used Dehydrated to request certs, but I had to change the setup and found it surprisingly hard to use certbot without it messing up my lovingly handcrafted Nginx configs. This seems to be a sane setup :)

Sadly Gitea isn't included in the official Debian repositories, but this guide is easy to follow.

How much will it cost (per month) to maintain a NextCloud server?
and is there any detailed video about how to host it using windows 10?

I have been learning a lot thanks to Lemmy and the people behind it, so I wanted to contribute a bit back by making some easy-to-follow video tutorials. I have also made the same video in Spanish: As a beginner myself, I do have a level of concern that I might teach something incorrectly, or that I might expose others to security risks and liabilities. I hope that these concerns are not well-founded, but I am open to criticism!

Then, you can setup Backup to regularly store compressed, encrypted backups of your data on their Nextcloud server! If something goes wrong, you can restore your Nextcloud, or even bring back individual files and folders. Of course, it might make sense to, in exchange, create an account for them on your server to store their backups! > > What makes Nextcloud Backup different from other backup solutions? Its ease of use! If you are using a backup technology that you are comfortable with, keep using it. Nextcloud Backup is for those users who have found it difficult and time consuming to setup another backup solution."

What’s a fun project to work on with the Raspberry Pi?
I thought about using my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ as a NextCloud server, but research told me it would be too slow to be useful. Any cool useful projects I can do, without any extra purchases? I'm extremely low on money currently.

[Preview video review]( Edit: seems like production has been delayed.
