Enterprise solutions

For businesses, Nextcloud GmbH offers an enterprise-ready version of Nextcloud.

Nextcloud Enterprise
All-in-One docker image

Nextcloud GmbH maintains an all-in-one Docker image that is easy to install and maintain. You can get further information about this project on its Github page.

Set up AIO
All-in-One VM image

If you do not want to install the AIO docker image manually and want to run it inside Virtualbox, you can use the AIO-VM. However installing the docker image manually is much more flexible.

E.g. if you want to run AIO behind a reverse proxy, you need to use the docker image as this VM image is not suitable for this use case.

Web installer

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.

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

You can find further instructions in the Nextcloud Admin Manual.


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.

Web installer



The archive should be extracted in a folder your web server has access to. Latest stable version: see Changelog.
Follow the Nextcloud Admin Manuals installation chapter.
If you already run Nextcloud, refer to the upgrade manual.
