Good morning all!
I have an installation of NextCloud (18.06) on my remote VPN which has functioned very well for the last year or so. However, one issue I am facing is that the backup process is failing.
Having looked into this in more detail, I have found the following error message is being emailed to me daily:
processing nextclouddb mysqldump: Got error: 1045: "Access denied for user '-p'@'localhost' (using password: YES)" when trying to connect
I have the settings in config.php according to what is expected:
'datadirectory' => '/var/www/html/nextcloud/data', 'dbtype' => 'mysql', 'version' => '220.127.116.11', 'overwrite.cli.url' => 'https://www.applied-jidoka.com/nextcloud', 'dbname' => 'nextclouddb', 'dbhost' => 'localhost', 'dbport' => '', 'dbtableprefix' => 'oc_', 'mysql.utf8mb4' => true, 'dbuser' => 'nextclouduser', 'dbpassword' => '****', 'installed' => true,
Obviously I have left out the password and other secrets etc.
I am struggling to see where the command for backing up the database is being triggered from. Looking for this error online isn’t finding anyone else with this problem.
I would appreciate hearing your suggestions to resolve this issue. At the moment, I am unable to run the updater as part of that process is backing up the database.
edit: I moved this from installation to support - that seems more appropriate for this issue.
