Nextcloud Server

Looking for older versions or major releases?

Nextcloud Server does not support Microsoft Windows. We recommend using a virtual machine or docker image on Windows Server.

Security note:
To receive information about updates and security issues, we recommend a subscription to our low-traffic newsletter.

Release channels:
We offer Release Channels with production, stable, beta and daily-branches. This gives you the opportunity to choose your balance between stability and features.

The Web Installer is the easiest way to install Nextcloud on a web space. It checks the dependencies, downloads Nextcloud from the official server, unpacks it with the right permissions and the right user account. Finally, you will be redirected to the Nextcloud installer.

  1. Right-click here and save the file to your computer
  2. Upload setup-nextcloud.php to your web space
  3. Point your web browser to setup-nextcloud.php on your webspace
  4. Follow the instructions and configure Nextcloud
  5. Login to your newly created Nextcloud instance!

You can find further instructions in the Nextcloud Admin Manual.

Note that the installer uses the same Nextcloud version as available for the built in updater in Nextcloud. After a major release it can take up to a month before it becomes available through the web installer and the updater. This is done to spread the deployment of new major releases out over time.
