Nextcloud with multipass: is it ready for production?

Hi there,

I have tried the Nextcloud server deployed with multipass. The installation is smothless and the server works right away, but then I immediately faced the problem of access from outside the ubuntu host. I tried configuring iptables to reroute the traffic to the VM, but to no avail. I am far to be an expert in virtual machine and I did found some posts related to this (https://askubuntu.com/questions/1263043/cannot-access-an-ubuntu-guest-vm-running-under-multipass-on-an-ubuntu-host-from), but with no practical solution, at least for me.

I am therefore wondering if I am missing something. Is it that the multipass solution is not yet ready for real use? Or user like me do need additional tuto in order to manage configuring it properly?

Best regards,
Pierre

It appears that Multipass doesn’t support bridging, but you can try forwarding individual ports from your host to the VM. For the Nextcloud appliance, I suggest forwarding ports 80 and 443.
