I want to install nextcloud under xenial, and as fashion is to snap I test, I do not find much info about snap packets apart from how to install them.

I understood that it was a chroot environment in readonly (basically touch nothing, not to break)


  • where are the logs?

  • How to restart the httpd service included in the snap?

  • How change an apache parameter ?

Thank you for your help !


  • Since snaps include their dependencies, how to change the port depends on the snap in question. This might prove relevant for the Nextcloud snap. – Kyle Dec 28 '16 at 2:00
