404 for files svg´s - core images work

My logs are full of 404s for all icons related to the files app

/owncloud/svg/files/recent/000?v=1 HTTP/2.0" 404
/owncloud/svg/files/public/000?v=1 HTTP/2.0" 404

Core files on the other hand work - which makes NC look not too good

/owncloud/svg/core/actions/star-dark/000?v=2 HTTP/2.0" 200
/owncloud/svg/core/places/contacts/fff?v=1 HTTP/2.0" 200


  • I tried hints like enabling theming or setting 'htaccess.IgnoreFrontController' = true, already , but no success
  • I am using nginx in subfolder config according to the documentation
  • the “owncloud” folder = “nextcloud” (matter of existing links"

any idea how to fix it?
thank you all


the issue was caused by the config setting of

'apps_paths' => 
  array (
    0 => 
    array (
      'path' => '/var/www/owncloud/apps',
      'url' => '/apps',
      'writable' => true,

no clue why, but removing cleared all issues
