Bug: scan.nextcloud.com fails - URL downshifted


testing my Nextcloud installation via scan.nextcloud.com fails with following error messages:

Scan failed! The scan for the specified domain failed. Either no Nextcloud or ownCloud can be found there or you tried to scan too many servers

In the meantime I figured out what the reason for the malfunction is:
the scan server downshifts the URL.

My nextcloud instance is reached via:
The scan server tries to reach:
Everything shifted down. As my server is configured case sensitivity on the test fails.

I haven’t found a repository for nextcloud/scan. What is the right procedure to report bugs like this?

Thanks for your help!

I would say the right place to report issues with the security scanner is here: GitHub - nextcloud/nextcloud.com: 🌏 Our website

There is also a specific label for the security scanner in that repoo… Issues · nextcloud/nextcloud.com · GitHub

thanks for your help! Fred

Nextcloud should not be installed in a subfolder.

@Sanook is right. Please do not install Nextcloud in a subfolder. Use subdomains.

Also you not really need the Nextcloud Scan.

Is this an actual supported Nextcloud version?
Is your server up to date?
Is your ssl certificate valid?

I don’t think the scanner does more or can do more. Rather less.

I agree installing Nextcloud in the root folder or using other tools would avoid running into the scan.nextcloud.com bug.

But why don’t fix this simple bug? In an URL the host is not case-sensitive the path is case-sensitive. The tool obviously downshifts the path part …

In the meantime I filed an issue on GitHub at the place @bb77 suggested.
