NextCloud Installation Q & A

    • OMV 3.x
    • Can you ls -la /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d and post the directory listing? I suspect you have no conf for that fpm pool.

      It's not difficult to create one but I'd be concerned as to why it's not there in the first place, is there other things with the install which is broken.

      I'm not so sure the permissions script will ameliorate the issue with no unix socket/fpm pool configuration for nextcloud, HOWEVER, I don't use that software and am just troubleshooting based on some experience with web development.

      To be sure, your install won't work until that .sock file appears, along with the correlating conf in fpm/pools.d . I'm just not sure if that was supposed to happen automagically or if you missed a step in the install (I haven't had more than a cursory glance at this guide)

      @tinh_x7 I went through step 1e and noticed I am missing: description field. Also my fields for max post and max upload were different. After changing those I was able to access nextcloud installationi process. However when I entered mysql root password and create admin and clciked finish installation after a minute or so I got:
      This site can’t provide a secure connection

      Please note, I didn't enable ssl since in the tutorial it said: "Note: It would easier to begin the setup with HTTP than HTTPS. After the installation is done, you can change it to HTTPS, and use Let's Encrypt for your encryption if you want."
    • That's a progress.
      Max post and max upload aren't matter in this case.
      These parameters let you define your upload max size files.

      Turn off the HTTPS option in the vhost config, and reload the nginx service.
      After you have NC running like it suppose to, then you can re-enable HTTPS if you have the SSL certficate.

      Change this
      fastcgi_param HTTPS on;

      fastcgi_param HTTPS off;

      Then run:
      sudo service nginx restart

      For Clarification: the NextCloud vhost codes are set with HTTPS ON by default in my installation guide.
      Ensure to set HTTPS off in the vhost codes like above example if you not use SSL.

      Hi, first of all thanks for the nextcloud tutorial - it worked perfectly, at least until yesterday :)

      I had it running for a month now and yesterday I ran into timeouts while uploading data into the cloud. After a restart I got a "bad gateway" error, when checking the error log I got this, see below. (sock failed no such file or directory)

      I tried to fix it myself but unfortunately I am not used to work with linux. I didnt change permissions updated nextloud.

      Any help is highly appreciated!

      My problem was very strange but I solved it: Reason for timeouts and php errors was caused by one mobile nextcloud app, which created so many logins that somehow the server went down. After reinstalling the app and clearing the bruteforce table of nextcloud, nextcloud is running fine again.
