25.0.0rc2, 24.0.6rc1, 23.0.10rc1

Maintenance releases of 24.0.5 and 23.0.9 are coming in a week and RCs for those are now available on our download server.

Also, the second RC of Nextcloud 25 is now available on our download server! :rocket:

As always, help with testing is very much welcome!

We updated our servers, did our tests, and the release candidates seem pretty decent. Still, give it a whirl and report back here so we’re even more sure that it’s good to go! If you notice anything out of order, please report back on the appropriate github repository! :bowing_woman:


Known issues

  • [25.0.0 RC2] the updater does not remove the .step file in /path/to/data/updater-$INSTANCEID/ after a successful upgrade. Next time you like to upgrade you notice that all to-dos are ticked, alas nothing really happens. Manually deleting this .step file solves the issue for now. Actually, a fix is developed and shipped with this 25.0.0 RC2, but it will be effective only with your next upgrade.


25.0.0 RC2

24.0.6 RC1

23.0.10 RC1


I am getting the error shown in the attached screenshot when I try to run the updater from the Web Admin->Overview page.

Thank you for this interesting update.

May I suggest you to group the information in the changelogs l10n / js-frameworks bumps () / new features / Security Fix / Useability fix ? It is currently really hard to digest all of this information.

This already happened with RC1. The suggested php snipped works, but this cannot a solution for future upgrades?

@eehmke - Yea, that snippet doesn’t work for me. I assume I’m supposed to add the updater.secret key in the config.php file. Which I did and nothing changes. (I tried both values given)

I also now get the following message on every page:

Invalid private key for encryption app. Please update your private key password in your personal settings to recover access to your encrypted files.

You might need to restart the web server and/or the php fpm server after updating the key in the config file. I did that and it worked.

Bug NC 25RC2 as well as NC 24: Moving an event from one calendar to another does not get propagated to connected clients.
related forum thread: Bug NC25 RC2 (and NC24)
github issue: https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues/34162

Hi. I just updated from NC 25 beta 6 to NC 25 rc2. After that the albums did not work anymore. They worked for me with 25 beta 6. Now I get “could not fetch albums list” as described here [Bug]: NC 25 Failed to fetch albums lists · Issue #1197 · nextcloud/photos · GitHub

Can anyone confirm this?



After the update to 25.0.0 RC2, I am getting that error with Talk-App, too:

I can´t get my NC to work again :frowning:

[Sun Oct 02 16:16:25.608734 2022] [proxy_fcgi:error] [pid 2832842:tid 140188017727232] [client 78.31.xxx.xxx:x] AH01071: Got error ‘PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Declaration of OCA\Talk\Share\RoomShareProvider::getSharesInFolder($userId, OCP\Files\Folder $node, $reshares): array must be compatible with OCP\Share\IShareProvider::getSharesInFolder($userId, OCP\Files\Folder $node, $reshares, $shallow = true) in /var/www/vhosts/xxx.de/httpdocs/nx/apps/spreed/lib/Share/RoomShareProvider.php on line 520’

The accessibility app was removed and integrated into the server proper.

Can you double-check you have the correct version of Talk for 25?

Good evening,
I installed today the V25 RC2 version (since version, and since then I can’t connect.
The home page shows me “The required configuration value passwordsalt is not configured in your config.php file.”

The passwordsalt =“” in the config.php file, but this was already the case before (I checked in the saved folders).

If this is useful :
PHP 8.1.11
arch linux 5.19.12-arch1-1

The nextcloud logs remain empty and I see nothing in the apache logs

A post was split to a new topic: No file structure are displayed after updating to 25.0.0rc2

@eehmke - Sorry, that still doesn’t work for me. Hmmm…

Did you consider looking through past pasting of this error on the forum and Github? afaik, you have previously enabled and then disabled the server encryption module.

Search results for 'Invalid private key for encryption app. Please update your private key password in your personal settings to recover access to your encrypted files' - Nextcloud community.

@just - I restored a backup of my system that was made prior to this error condition so I am good now. However, I don’t recall ever selecting anything to be encrypted, so I don’t know what any encryption key would ever be needed for my installation.

Additional you need to delete the .step file in the data folder. Just did this today to upgrade from RC1 to RC2.

@AndyXheli - are you by any chance using PHP 8.1? I am and I’m getting the same error as you. I’m also seeing some odd messages in the nextcloud.log file about deprecated event type?
