I followed the documentation down to the letter (using vm installation script) to install Nextcloud but when it comes to finalize the installation (using nextcloud wizard or occ command line) I get stuck :
sudo -u www-data php /var/www/nextcloud/occ maintenance:install --database "mysql" --database-name "owncloud" --database-user "root" --database-pass "password" --admin-user "admin" --admin-pass "password" Command "maintenance:install" is not defined. Did you mean one of these? app:install maintenance:data-fingerprint maintenance:mimetype:update-db maintenance:mimetype:update-js maintenance:mode maintenance:repair maintenance:theme:update maintenance:update:htaccess
app:install does not seem to have what is needed.
trying to use the wizard, i get greeted with this message :
Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator if this error reappears multiple times, please include the technical details below in your report. More details can be found in the server log.

I spent quite some time on linux but I’m still a newbie, I know close to nothing about php and apache.
some additional details
- I am running a “home server” on Ubuntu 18.04 freshly installed.
- I had to edit nextcloud_install_production.sh to stop package checking/checking if it was a clean vm since i’m not running a vm.
- nextcloud-startup-script.sh could not be run because it brought down my network interface and wouldn’t bring it back up, thus conducting tests on a non-working network connection. I couldn’t find the responsible code part.
I edited nextcloud-startup-script.sh so that it could be run to the end. Lots of things have been installed, including DBMS. I think it’s a step forward but eventually I still get the server internal error.
I’m starting to think it’s a configuration problem with apache2 configuration but I can’t figure it out.
