Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):

Steps to replicate it:

  1. login as admin and create new user
  2. select different quota than default
  3. nothing is selected, the textbox returns to “select quota for user”

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

Nothing is reported

The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):


The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:


well at least you cannot see which quota you have set, actually… and this is a known bug… we all hope for 18.0.4 to have it solved

Sorry, this is my first nextcloud installation, i’m quite new. Are you saying that though i don’t see quota value it is set anyway? is it just a visual problem?

it exactly looks like that is the case - at least that was reported here on the forum quite frequently

Not in my case… quota value is not set al all. Only default value rules. If i set to unlimited to admin user, it’s like i did nothing and the value is ignored…
