sean Hi again,
I've been toying with nextcloud, apps, calibreweb, syncing, ... on opalstack and on hetzner and I came to a few conclusions and a new question.
It turns out hetzner doesn't support external storage because of security reasons, so connecting another server to their nextcloud isn't possible.
Connecting a hetzner-nextcloud to an opalstack-instance is possible. But from what I understand it doesn't sync an an external storage locally. It just provides a webinterface to the external storage and temporarily caches it.
If I want to use Calibreweb on opalstack the files have to be somewhere within my user on opalstack.
I saw there is a nextcloudmd-client (https://docs.nextcloud.com/desktop/3.4/advancedusage.html#install-nextcloudcmd) that can be triggered to sync a nextcloud-account. But I assume using rclone with a cronjob might to the same thing?
My setup would be installing calibreweb on opalstack and using rclone to daily sync my ebooklibrary with my nextcloud at hetzner which syncs with calibre on my laptop amongst other things.
Do you consider that the best solution given the current situation? (until opalstack comes with similar storage solutions 🙂).
