Introduction

BlueMind 3.5.7 introduces the possibility to connect to an external drive, starting with Nextcloud.

Users are now able to use their Nextcloud personal space to manage the files they send via BlueMind mail and enjoy the advantages of their drive: file structure, moving, deleting, security, synchronization with other apps, etc.

Tool handling for administrators is improved: easier, more detailed disk space management, user-specific management, centralized data, security and back-up monitoring.

Pre-requisites

Installing Nextcloud

Nextcloud must be installed and functionning.

Nextcloud is an independent product with no ties to BlueMind. For more information on getting and installing it and how it works, please go to https://Nextcloud.com/

Désinstallation du dépôt de document BlueMind

À partir de BlueMind 3.5.9, Nextcloud peut être utilisé :

  1. en cohabitation avec le dépôt interne à BlueMind : si l'utilisateur ne renseigne pas d'identifiant de connexion à Nextcloud c'est BlueMind qui sera utilisé.
    Pour cela, procéder à l'installation telle que décrite au chapitre suivant.
  2. en remplacement du dépôt interne à BlueMind : si l'utilisateur ne renseigne pas d'identifiant de connexion à BlueMind, il n'aura pas accès à la fonctionnalité de détachement des pièces jointes.
    Pour cela, désinstaller le paquet dédié au filhosting BlueMind :

    aptitude remove bm-plugin-core-filehosting-filesystem

    Puis procéder à l'installation telle que décrite au chapitre suivant.

Installation

BlueMind 3.5.7, 3.5.8 et 3.5.8-*

pour les versions antérieures à la version 3.5.9, Nextcloud peut uniquement être utilisé en remplacement du dépôt interne à BlueMind. Il est donc nécessaire pour ces versions de désinstaller le paquet dédié :

aptitude remove bm-plugin-core-filehosting-filesystem
  • Download and extract the archive in the BlueMind marketplace
  • Get the jar files contained:

  • Place these 2 files on the server in the directory /usr/share/bm-core/extensions/

  • Delete the directory /var/lib/bm-core
  • Restart the bm-core service:

    service bm-core restart
  • Place the file net.bluemind.ui.adminconsole.nextcloud.settings-*.jar on the server in the directory /usr/share/bm-webserver/extensions
  • Delete the directory /var/lib/bm-webserver
  • Restart the webserver :

    service bm-webserver restart
