PHP version (eg, 7.1):

The issue you are facing:

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

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Share a folder that contains files and subfolders with “Allows Uploading and Editing” checked
  2. Open shared folder via copied or emailed link
  3. Contents of the subfolders are not visible. “Download all files” creates a .zip with the folder structure as expected; they are jut not visible within the webrowser.

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

Nothing shown.

As shown in the picture this is the contents of the folder that was shared. I am unable to see the contents in the browser for either “New Folder” or “Test”. Multiple browsers, Desktop and Mobile, have been tested.

It seems that you’re using Nextcloud 15.0.6 which contains the described problem. Install Nextcloud 15.0.7 to fix the problem.

That resolved it. Thanks for the quick help!

I had just installed that instance last week so didn’t even think about checking for an update.
