After installing nextcloud via snap I configured the data directory to an external volume. This is great because I can resize this volume.
Now I also do automatic backups every day with
nextcloud.export. This worked fine until I changed the data dir. Now I am getting the error:
Exporting database... Exporting config... Exporting data... rsync: change_dir "/var/snap/nextcloud/common/nextcloud/data" failed: No such file or directory (2) 0 100% 0.00kB/s 0:00:00 (xfr#0, to-chk=0/0) rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1196) [sender=3.1.2] Unable to export data
The only thing I find online is that snap might not be able to handle this and that I should back up the data myself: https://github.com/nextcloud/nextcloud-snap/issues/929
That would be really cumbersome and I also think it’s not good practice to split the backups into two parts. Isn’t there another way? Can I not somehow tell snap to change the default path?
Thanks for any help. Very much appreciated.
