I’m new to Nextcloud and installed successfully version 23 first, then the latest version 24. Both times I had the problem that Collobara does not work: Version NC24 at least makes an attempt to open a document in the browser and fails. Version 23 doesn’t even do that and the documents downloads immediately.
While researching here, I noticed: the forum is just bursting with problem messages regarding Collabora. Not only after upgrades, but also after new installations. Not only on managed servers, but also on own hardware. How can this be?
I actually expect that after an initial installation without error messages everything should work - more or less. But if already (after a successfull first setup !) something banal like opening a document in a browser doesn’t work, how does it look for demanding tasks?
When I read the posts in this forum, I almost have the impression: many are already afraid of the next upgrade!
As I said, I’m a newbie, but I don’t want to become a nerd. I can set up other services (such as WordPress) without problems, on external servers and on my own hardware. It is also usually no problem for me to successfully adapt config files. (However, I am often limited by the provider where I host the services: no access to config files).
But I am a little perplexed about my first experience with Nextcloud and my question relates to this: is it realistic to expect to successfully manage a Nextcloud in the long term with such ‘basic’ skills - and limited administration access?
I hope these are just first impressions of an "inexperienced newbie“. Thank you very much for your feedback
I have already posted the question in the German-speaking forum and hope not to violate the forum rules by posting again. But I didn’t get any feedback there and hope for success in the larger English-speaking community. Thanks a lot.
