Privacy Concerns & Server Locations : Hike-Telegram-Whatspp

1.    I have always seen and observed discussions amongst my friends and circle about which Chat Messenger is safe and which is not in terms of safety and privacy aspects.Whether the servers are located inside the country or they are off-shores,how their data is shared and how is their privacy likely to be compromised bu third parties.....So to just do a over view check,here I present an over view of such FAQs in context of Server Locations and data sharing aspects,primarily sourced from the original websites.

Nextcloud 10 installation @ Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

1.   Nextcloud is open source file sync and share software for everyone from individuals operating the free Nextcloud Server in the privacy of their own home, to large enterprises and service providers supported by the Nextcloud Enterprise Subscription. Nextcloud provides a safe, secure, and compliant file synchronization and sharing solution on servers that you control.

2.   This post shares screen shots of my installation of the same in UBUNTU 16.04 LTS.The screen-shots are self explanatory along with the command sets available for direct lift if one is interested.

Here's my ip address configuration as set on the virtual machine Ubuntu.
Terminal commands :

> apt-get update
 
 > apt-get install lamp-server^


> apt-get install libapache2-mod-php7.0 php7.0-mbstring php7.0-curl php7.0-zip php7.0-gd php7.0-mysql php7.0-mcrypt
> apt-get install php-xml
Goto the nextcloud site at https://nextcloud.com/install/ and download the zip file for nextcloud installation.This one is version 10

Downloading here as seen completing :
Goto the Downloads folder and unzip it
> unzip nextcloud-10.0.0.zip

> mv nextcloud /var/www/html
> chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/nextcloud

Now we need to Configure MariaDB for this vide these commands as mentioned :
> mysql_secure_installation
Type Yes for all except may be root password which u might want to retain.

CREATE DATABASE nextcloud;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON nextcloud.* TO 'nextcloud'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'anupam';
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
exit;



> Gedit /etc/mysql/my.cnf

Add the following three lines at the end:
log-bin = /var/log/mysql/mariadb-bin
log-bin-index = /var/log/mysql/mariadb-bin.index
binlog_format = mixed

 

Now we need to Configure Apache Web Server
> sudo a2enmod rewrite
> touch /etc/apache2/sites-available/nextcloud.conf
> ln -s /etc/apache2/sites-available/nextcloud.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/nextcloud.conf
> nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/nextcloud.conf


Add the following:

ServerAdmin admin@ubuntu
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/nextcloud/"
ServerName youripaddress
ServerAlias ubuntu

Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
allow from all

ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/your-domain.com-error_log
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/your-domain.com-access_log common

here you ready to go....just type the ipaddress in the web browser...
