Portainer raspberry pi 4 review

Raspberry Pi 4 (Raspberry Pi 3 is ok too, if you have one laying around) Power Supply for Raspberry Pi 4 or Power Supply for Raspberry Pi 3; Micro SD Card. Ideally get one that is Application Class 2 as they handle small I/O much more consistently than cards not optimized to host applications. A 32 GB or bigger card is recommended. I need your help to built this list! Portainer App Template for ARM devices like raspberry pi! LINKS Novaspirit Pi-Hosted Tempalte https://github.com. RasPiServer is a personal project, where I write about my WordPress on a Raspberry Pi experiences as well as other tutorials. The project is for personal use, but you are more than welcome to comment and give your opinions along the way.

In this post we’ll look at how to Install NextCloud on a Raspberry Pi 4 with OpenMediaVault and Docker.

We’re going to use the setup from https://hub.docker.com/_/nextcloud, but we’re going to change one thing: the database.

The database that is being used in the docker-compose file on the site isn’t compatible with ARM processors, so we’ll need to change that in a bit.

But first, we need to get logged in to our Raspberry Pi’s Portainer. This tutorial assumes that you already have Docker and Portainer installed, most likely via OpenMediaVault.


  • You’ll need a domain name.
  • You’ll need to a CloudFlare account with your domain name pointed to it.
  • You’ll need to point a subdomain to your home’s IP address. Make sure that Proxy Status is “DNS Only”. Also make sure that you change SSL/TLS to “Full”.
  • You’ll need to forward ports 80 and 443 to your Raspberry Pi.
  • You’ll need NGINX Proxy Manager installed.
  • You’ll need to create a volume in OpenMediaVault for your NextCloud file storage.


Open Portainer on your Raspberry Pi and create a new Stack.

Paste the following into your new stack:

Change the few things as noted above.

Click the “Deploy the Stack” button.

Next, go to your NGINX Proxy Manager dashboard. Create a new Proxy Host.

  • Fill in the domain name (or subdomain) you designated for your NextCloud install.
  • Scheme should be http.
  • Forward Hostname/IP should be your Raspberry Pi’s IP address.
  • Foward port should be 8080.
  • Click the “Block Common Exploits” toggle.

Go to the SSL tab.

  • Change “None” to “Request a New SSL Certificate”.
  • Click the “Force SSL” and “HTTP/2 Support” toggles.
  • You can click the HSTS toggles if you’ve enabled HSTS in CloudFlare.
  • Click “Save”.

Next, go to https://nextcloud.yourdomain.com (change this to your actual domain) and you should see the NextCloud install page.

  • Enter an Admin username and password.
  • Change the database type to MySQL/MariaDB.
  • Enter the username, password, and database name as you have them in your Portainer Stack.
  • Change Database location to from “localhost” to “db” (without quotes).
  • Toggle the option for additional app installation to meet your needs.
  • Click “Finish setup”.

At this point, you can go get some lunch or something as the install process will take a while since we’re on a 4 core ARM processor.

Once the install is complete, you’ll be taken to the NextCloud dashboard and then you should be good to go!
