Nextcloud must be installed and operational.
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/
When Nextcloud is running in Apache + PHP-FPM, it is not capable of retrieving the file's contents. The uploaded file therefore weighs 0 bytes and no error is reported to BlueMind or shown in logs.
About this Apache bug: https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=57087
The BlueMind plugin for Nextcloud will therefore not work if Nextcloud is deployed in a PHP-FPM on Apache. You must use mod_php or Nginx+PHP-FPM.
From BlueMind 3.5.9, Nextcloud can be used:
instead of BlueMind's internal storage: if the user doesn't fill in a BlueMind login ID, they will not have access to the linked attachments feature.
To do this, uninstall the BlueMind file hosting package:
aptitude remove bm-plugin-core-filehosting-filesystem bmctl restart
BlueMind has to be restarted for uninstallation to be complete but it doesn't have to be done immediately. You can install Nexcloud as shown below and restart later.
Then proceed to the installation as described in the next section.
For versions earlier than 3.5.9, Nextcloud can only be used as a replacement for BlueMind's internal storage. For these versions, you must therefore uninstall the dedicated package:
net.bluemind.filehosting.nextcloud*folder for your version of Nextcloud
Place these 2 files on the server in the directory
Restart the bm-core service:
service bm-core restart
net.bluemind.ui.adminconsole.nextcloud.settings-*.jaron the server in the directory
Restart the webserver :
service bm-webserver restart
Only the platform administrator is able to connect BlueMind to Nextcloud for all domains:
Anyone with the "Domain Administrator" role for a specific domain can configure BlueMind to connect to Nextcloud for this domain.
Once Nextcloud has been properly installed and configured, users can connect their Nextcloud account to their BlueMind account.
