I described the issue already here and here but was advised to open a new issue, which is why I am writing here.
I have a fresh new installation of Raspberry OS and tried to install NextCloud with the curl method.
I never get past the activation.
I was also advised to file a bug report.
Can any one help me get this up and running?
Rerunning nc-init 1000 times doesn’t work!
In order to investigate, thank you for sharing output of
sudo cat /var/log/syslog
Please use a pastebin service, output can be very long
- run fsck on your drive(s) if any errors.
- swap sd-card, cables, powersource. (90% problems come from corrupt cards, bad drives, broken cables and insufficient power-sources.)
- Pi2 and older are notoriously slow, especially so at running mysql, and nc-init should create a clean db.
- If serious about running NC in your home or office, I can recommend a NUC or a (refurbished) desktop computer with minimal i3 and 8Gb Ram.
Martin, honestly Nextcloud runs poorly on the Pi 2. It is bad. I’ve been testing NextcloudPi on all architectures for almost 4 - 5 years. The Pi 2 is not worth running Nextcloud on. Seriously. I strongly recommend just setting up a disroot.org nextcloud account for free, cause the pi 2 is simply too old.
Maybe, but as long as I don’t even get past activation I have little or no confidence this problem to disappear just by installing on better hardware. It’s not a sporadic issue; it realibly doesn’t work and looks like a bug to me …
