I am playing with Owncloud, hosting it on a VM, with 3 VM windows machines all running the owncloud software. One of those is on a separate network with a VPN connection to simulate syncing things off site.
I have had a little trouble getting the NextCloud vm installed due to how ESXi sometimes sends duplicate keystrokes & Nextcloud forcing a password change during install.
I am curious what the overall difference is for the products? They seem to be similar, some sort of staff change from both projects, and some other drama were what i found online.
My main usage would be to replace dropbox. I will host it in my office with VPN access for devices offsite so the https I think isnt so important.
I just want something that is reliable and wont phone home / delete my data by mistake.
