Welcome to DreamCloud Academy!

DreamCloud Academy hosts a variety of services and acts as a community hub for its members. Originally an ownCloud server launched by Benjamin R. Terry back in 2016, he soon added accounts for his friends to play with. Over time, web space and additional services were added, but eventually the system grew somewhat out of date and ran short on disk space. On November of 2019, DreamCloud Academy was relaunched with additional space and services. It currently runs an up to date Debian providing a wiki using MediaWiki, cloud storage and many other services through NextCloud, and simple user web hosting as well. A number of libraries are maintained in the cloud storage. Documentation and curation of the libraries is ongoing, as are updates to the applications and individual web pages. Enjoy!

Consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
