405 "Method not allowed" from Nextcloud Mac

Nextcloud version: 20.0.2
PHP version: 7.2

The issue you are facing:

Installed using Softalicious app installer on Kualo hosting (I’m no expert).

Connected successfully from Nextcloud macOS app.

Syncing almost exclusively text files. Out of about 300 files which succeeded in syncing, 5 or 6 fail with the message “405 Method not allowed”.

If I make a new empty file, that syncs fine. As I copy (or even retype) progressively more text from the original (failing) file into the new (syncing) one, eventually the new one fails too. But I can’t figure out what the trigger is (file size, specific characters, etc.).

How do I troubleshoot this? Like I said, I’m not an expert.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): N

Nothing in Admin > Logging.

The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):

$CONFIG = array (
  'instanceid' => '',
  'passwordsalt' => '',
  'secret' => '',
  'trusted_domains' => 
  array (
    0 => '',
  'datadirectory' => '',
  'dbtype' => 'mysql',
  'version' => '',
  'overwrite.cli.url' => '',
  'dbname' => '',
  'dbhost' => 'localhost',
  'dbport' => '',
  'dbtableprefix' => '',
  'dbuser' => '',
  'dbpassword' => '',
  'installed' => true,

(all identifying strings replaced by empty).

Hi, I m facing the same error code on my mac OSX.
I have also the latest NC and PHP.
A lot of files doesn’t want to sync. and I got multiple different errors such as:

403 Forbidden PUT

Also my nextcloud folder server HDD keeps on increasing size Gb/minutes… while my real files on the nextcloud weight 86 Gb and on my server the drive information indicates it is at 128Gb still increasing. On top of that not all my files are sync… ^^

I m totally lost

My install is a Nextcloud VM ubuntu
