Nextcloud on AWS with S3 and Lightsail

Running a Nextcloud instance in AWS rather than at your home has some benefits:

  • S3 storage means unlimited storage
  • Static IP
  • Fast bandwidth
  • Always able to SSH into machine and restart it

I suggest this blog that provides a few steps to get you up and running in less than 15 minutes, along with getting a free domain name at

To avoid:

  • Do not use Amazon Linux
  • Do not use encryption (my server stopped being able to retrieve files)
