Nextcloud version 16.0.3:
Operating system and version Ubuntu 18:
Apache or nginx version 2.4.29:
PHP version 7.2:
The issue you are facing:
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):
Steps to replicate it:
- Installed nextcloud following this guide:https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-install-nextcloud-16-on-ubuntu-18-04/
- use http://SERVER_IP/nextcloud to set up dbuser account
- The user account get set up and dbpassword is stored in /var/www/html/nextcloud/config/config.php file.
Question: the password is stored as plain text without any encryption. Theoretically anyone who can access this file will also be able to know my “strong password”. This seems not safe.
Am I missing something during installation that can make this safer? What is the best practice to store/encrypt my password?
