Ok all, i am stumped I searched and searched and just cant not get past this point.
I am running Linux Mint 19, and I setup LAMP no issue, got my SSL running and my wordpress website all good.
I am running nextcloud, and copied it to the /var/www/html/ directory and named it cloud.
When running the install I just can not get past the data directory permission issue.
The exact error is “Can’t create or write into the data directory /media/www-data/Cloud/storage”
I obviously have an internal drive used for the storage of the data because the install drive is only 120 gig SSD.
So, in terminal I created a directory called “storage” and then assigned the www-data user permissions to it, I commented and uncommented the open_base = none in the php ini.
I just can not get past this point, any pointers would be appreciated.
I am new to linux, and came from an Nextcloud installation on the Mac using MAMP PRO so i am familiar with NC.
In the Nextcloud config-file config.php did you set
‘datadirectory’ => ‘/media/www-data/Cloud/storage’ ?
to be clear this is the first step to installing and nothing is written to the config file, so there is nothing to change. After install a config file is created. But i can not get to that point.
1 - copied nextcloud to var/www/html/ nextcloud
2 - assigned www-data user to nextcloud folder
3 - logged in with browser to domain.name/nextcloud/
4- Install screen appears, created user name and password, where data directory is I put the location WHERE i want the data to be, in this case instead of /var/www/html/nextcloud/data i put /media/server/Cloud/nextcloud
5- proceed to put in database info and when i press finish setup - i get the cant write to data directory permission issues.
Anyone? If not this method, does anyone know how to move the DATA folder to an external drive?
I also have this problem with Linux mint 19.2.
Maybe someone have new ideas how to fix this ?
It was a permission issue with a he media folder I set it to the user and it worked.
Can u elaborate “set it to the user” ?
