Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5):
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04):
PHP version (eg, 7.4):
The issue you are facing:
When I call the website I get a white page with the message “Data directory is invalid Please check that the data directory contains a file “.ocdata” in its root.”
I’m using Plesk and I made a mistake by switching to PHP 8.2 Switching back didn’t work because something was messed up and I had to delete the subdomain. For that I saved the nextcloud folder
deleted the subdomain, created a new subdomain and copied everything back. And now I’m getting this message.
/opt/nextcloud/data was set on installation and contains a .ocdata file.
All threads concerning this topic seem to be caused by a move of the data directory, but this is not the case for me.
Any help is appreciated!
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y
