Nextcloud version 15.0.4:
Operating system and version Ubuntu 18.10:
Apache or nginx version nginx 1.15.5:
PHP version _ 7.2_:

The issue you are facing: After setting up Nextcloud I get a 404 code when I try to access localhost/nextcloud/index.php/apps/files. This URL came up automatically after I finished the setup and I can’t figure out what to do!

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

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

$CONFIG = array (
  'passwordsalt' => 'xxx',
  'secret' => 'xxx',
  'trusted_domains' => 
  array (
    0 => '',
  'datadirectory' => '/var/www/html/nextcloud/data',
  'dbtype' => 'mysql',
  'version' => '',
  'overwrite.cli.url' => 'http://localhost',
  'dbname' => 'nextclouddb',
  'dbhost' => 'localhost',
  'dbport' => '',
  'dbtableprefix' => 'oc_',
  'instanceid' => 'ocxxx',
  'dbuser' => 'xxx',
  'dbpassword' => 'xxx',
  'installed' => true,

Error 404 is a permission problem, could be that the files and folders don’t have the right ownership, could also be in your webserver configuration.

I have xxxed some of your logs. It seems to be a local setup, however, giving out some passwords is never a good idea (often used several times).

Thank you for xxxing the logs. I’m still green enough at this I hadn’t noticed the passwords.

So I took your advice, and changed ownership of nextcloud and its subdirectories to root, same as phpinfo.php and index.html. Now at least I’m not getting the 404, but if I try to access any of the subdirectories I get 404 again. Should the subdirectories be owned by the nginx user (in this case, www-data)?
