Since I switched from #Dropbox to #Storj, I’ve been almost solely using rclone.

Now I’ve started to feel that t it would be nice to have also an ownCloud instance and point out its storage to my #S3 bucket at Storj.

After looking through cloud options, I think got with ARM Ampere A1 VM: that #Oracle offers:

“Up to 4 instances of ARM Ampere A1 Compute with 3,000 OCPU hours and 18,000 GB hours per month”

Should scale a to my personal ownCloud with storage backend at Storj. The amount of OCPU hours nailed this really…

Stumped into a bug straight out right in the get-go ;-) It goes like this…

First, consider:

❯ cat pubkey.txt 
ssh-rsa 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 cardno:23_610_166

Uploading this results “Invalid file type. SSH public key (.pub) files only” (screenshot #1).

Then, consider:

❯ mv pubkey.{txt,pub}
❯ cat pubkey.pub 
ssh-rsa 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 cardno:23_610_166

As can been seen from screenshot #2, the public key was successfully uploaded. For me this looks like as if validation was based on the filename extension o_O

A correct validation would ignore the file’s name and base validation on RFC 4716: The Secure Shell (SSH) Public Key File Format.

@jarkko The egress pricing of storj may add up to a lot, if you configure the bucket as primary storage.

@oranki @jarkko you already pointed to right place, but just in case: You probably want to look at NextCloud instead of oc. Why not the Kapsi for hosting?

@oranki This is a valid point!

And simple batched sync's with rclone have been much nicer 99% of the time nice behavior as far as I'm concerned.

Sometimes tho would be nice to have quick real-time sync'd access. So what I do instead is that I simply run it at localhost 🤷 Then I know at least when I spending my quota, right? :-)

Thanks for the comment! Was a money saver...
