Can I change the data folder cause problems?

Hi,

i change my data folder because it was placed in my apache document root folder. Ich moved the data folder out of it and change the path in the “config.php”. But … can a update overwrite my changes?

By default is the data folder in the folder nextcloud.

A change only in config.php will not recognized, because there are some entries in mysql, which are pointing to nextcloud/data folder.

There is a HowTo how to change data folder to another place:


I prefer solution 2 :wink:

FYI: We have a internatiol section with german language:

An update will not overwrite anything inside config.php. If you successfully moved your data folder, it will survive.

Oh thanks :smiley:
