I encountered timeouts and problems with the web updater of NextCloud. Since it is super easy to use the command line updater and nothing like that has appeared here I think this is the way to go. I run a root server with PLESK. I use PHP 7.3 installed via plesk for the cloud subdomain.
Here are all the commands:
Change directory to wherever your NextCloud installation is located:
Your USER would be www-data or the owner of the domain in PLESK:
sudo -u USER /opt/plesk/php/7.3/bin/php updater/updater.phar
Say “yes” to start the upgrade.
Say no here! The system php maybe different from the one used by Plesk.
sudo -u USER /opt/plesk/php/7.3/bin/php occ upgrade
This checks if some maintenance on db side (not indexed columns) needs to be taken care of.
sudo -u USER /opt/plesk/php/7.3/bin/php ./occ db:add-missing-indices
Then switch off the maintenance mode.
sudo -u USER /opt/plesk/php/7.3/bin/php occ maintenance:mode --off
I use Ubuntu (18.10) for work. For RDP I use a Virtual Machine running Windows 10. While LibreOffice is great for many things, its Microsoft Office comparability is limited. Especially PowerPoint presentations do not look great. Google Slides does a great job here. As long as I have an internet connection it is my preferred choice for office, also due to its collaboration features. Sometimes I still need to use original Microsoft Office applications. Running them in a VM is one option, but the integration into the filesystem, especially with my Nextcloud sucks though.
Years ago I was running an older version of office with WINE. I was not in the mood to play around with the config so I bought Crossover Office 2018 and give Microsoft Office 2016 (32 bit) a try. The good thing is the money will find its way towards the WINE project.
Out of the box Word, Excel, Access, Outlook and Publisher seem to work. PowerPoint did not. It took me a while to figure it out and Google did not help much. But after disabling ‘Performance Enhanced Graphics’ for the bottle it launches.
