Remember when I told you about #nextcloud via #tor? Well, I did a little research and it turns out that my old #cubox supports eSata drives. So I instantly ordered a 500GB HDD along with a proper cable. When I receive the package I'm gonna set #armbian to use HDD as a primary (root) partition. I guess we'll see how it goes. The plan is to use HDD as Nextcloud instance (behind Tor) for me and my wife. Keep your fingers crossed 😉 Anyway, I'll try to inform you on my progress. #diyproject
Well, I'm sad to say that no progress so far. I managed to transfer the root partition to external drive (via eSATA) but something's wrong since the whole system is slower than before. I suspect it's either a faulty cable or perhaps #Cubox (i2ex) is simply not up to the task. Or it's something else entirely. I'll investigate next week. It's quite possible that I'll have to replace Cubox with a #RaspberryPi eventually. Anyway, wish me luck 🙄
Positive update this time 🙂 I figured out the problem with my eSATA drive. There wasn't sufficient power. Now I reinstalled #armbian, ran #nextcloud via onion script and everything seems to be working just fine. Finally, I installed #pihole on top of that. So even though #cubox is not the newest piece of hardware it will do for now. Great success! 😎 #selfhosting
