I’m setting up a nextcloud server with two HDDs for storage. I want to have redundancy in case a drive fails (hence RAID1) and I don’t want to worry about where I might forget the drives one day (hence the encryption). I’m going to be storing data for other people as well, so I think that alone requires encryption.
I’ve been doing some reading and found this:
It seems to suggest encrypting the drives first and then combining them to a logical volume to be mounted somewhere.
The advice in ancient (2007), so is there a better way of doing this?
I’m not sure I want to use zfs because I’m not sure if it can be encrypted and I’d like to be able to add a third HDD in the future for a RAID5 array. That said, I’m open for suggestions.
