503 When trying to install manually

Hey Nextcloud community!

I have been trying to set up my own instance of NextCloud on a home server but have not been too successful.

Running the installation script from here and manually from here have both caused this 503 error when I try to load http://<local IP of server>/nextcloud/

My hello world text works on http://<local IP of server>/ but NextCloud won’t work.

I feel like this error is just on apache’s end, so here is the error log.

HTTP/2 has more demands in this regard and the currently selected mpm will just not do. This is an advisory warning. Your server will continue to work, but the HTTP/2 protocol will be inactive.

Hi @Marsh.Mello, is php-fpm up ?
can you send more informations about your Apache configuration file server?

Hey @Mageunic

Here is my configuration file for apache

cat /etc/apache2/sites-available/nextcloud.conf

Alias /nextcloud "/var/www/nextcloud/"

<Directory /var/www/nextcloud/>
  Require all granted
  AllowOverride All
  Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews

  <IfModule mod_dav.c>
    Dav off

For php-fpm, I didn’t think it was installed. Installed it through the command apt install php-fpm. Then with a bit of googling I found the command ps aux | grep php-fpm to display its status.

ps aux | grep php-fpm

But unsure what to make of that. Is that it running in 4 instances?
