Nextcloud version (eg, 18.0.2): 18.0.7
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Debian 10 Buster
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): ngninx 1.14.2
PHP version (eg, 7.1):PHP 7.0.33

The issue you are facing:

Hello, I haven’t found a solution for data access from nextcloud to an additional disk.
My instance is on a VPS at OVH. My disk being almost full I ordered an additional disk, mounted in /mnt/sdb.
Nextcloud is version 18.0.7.

I’ve done the commands :
chown -R nextcloud:nextcloud /mnt/sdb
sudo chmod -R 0750 /mnt/sdb

I logged off and then logged back on nextcloud, but when I want to add the local disk, it doesn’t work. I don’t have any particular log otherwise.

How can I solve it ?

Have you tried to mount the new hard disk manually on the console as the user “nextcloud”?

your web server is running as user “nextcloud”.

i would guess www-data or nginx is your web server user.
