using NC v25.0.1 and wanted to follow the advise and change column type to bigint:
Some columns in the database are missing a conversion to big int.
Due to the fact that changing column types on big tables could take some time they were not changed automatically.
By running “occ db:convert-filecache-bigint” those pending changes could be applied manually.
This operation needs to be made while the instance is offline. For further details read the documentation page about this.
So, I enabled maintenace mode and tried to update:
~# occ maintenance:mode --on
Maintenance mode enabled
~# occ db:convert-filecache-bigint
but then I get the following message:
Nextcloud is in maintenance mode, hence the database isn’t accessible.
Cannot perform any command except ‘maintenance:mode --off’
and in the same printscreen it follows with:
Following columns will be updated:
This can take up to hours, depending on the number of files in your instance!
Continue with the conversion (y/n)? [n]
and exits immediately - back to command promt without chance to answer y or n.
Anyone seen this as well and/or any suggestion?
Thanks and kind regards - tullsta
PS: saw this with 24.0.6 as well.
