This page describes how to install the latest version of Memories.


Memories is an app for Nextcloud, so you need to install Nextcloud first. You can find the installation instructions here. For the best experience, we recommend to use the latest stable version of Nextcloud and PHP.

For easy setup and maintenance, you can use the community Nextcloud Docker image, and add extra dependencies using a custom Dockerfile. A Docker Compose example can be found in the repository. Make sure to read the instructions in docker-compose.yml carefully.

Another option is to use Nextcloud AIO, in which case most dependencies are already installed.

Recommended Configuration

If you plan to use hardware transcoding, using Docker Compose or Nextcloud AIO is recommended.


Before installing Memories, make sure that the following requirements are met:

  1. Nextcloud 26 or later.
  2. PHP 8.0 or later.
  3. MySQL, MariaDB, or PostgreSQL database.
  4. Imagick PHP extension.
  5. ffmpeg and ffprobe binaries.

Installing Memories

Memories can be installed from the Nextcloud app store page. Alternatively, you can install it manually by following these steps:

  1. Download the latest release from the releases page
  2. Extract the archive to the apps or custom_apps directory of your Nextcloud installation.
  3. Enable the app in the Nextcloud app settings page.
  4. Make sure you follow the configuration instructions carefully.

Installing from source

To build the app from source, you need to have node.js installed.

  1. Clone the repository to the apps or custom_apps directory of Nextcloud.
  2. Run make dev-setup to install the dependencies.
  3. Run make patch-external to apply patches to external dependencies.
  4. Run make build-js-production to build the JavaScript files.
  5. Enable the app in the Nextcloud app settings page.
