I just tried to run the command in my copied test instance and it ran through without a mistake, encryption is disabled but Nextcloud now shows an internal server error whenever I want to access a file, either by downloading it or using Calibre.
There are ways to manually undo the encryption on disk and in the database, but these are cumbersome at best. Another way could be to decrypt the files outside of Nextcloud and create a new installation to which you re-upload the decrypted files.
I need to disable serverside encryption because it produces an unresolved error on two of my installations.
Unfortunately, I cannot use
like suggested in the docs, because it produces errors as well.
So, I was wondering if I could do this:
Put everything on Nextcloud into one folder
to disable the encryption module
3. Duplicate the folder on my local installation (laptop) after the encryption is disabled, so that the duplicated folder gets re-uploaded like a new folder.
4. Delete the original folder from Nextcloud and the local installation, as it would create errors in the Nextcloud web interface after finishing to re-upload.
My assumptions are:
everything that gets re-uploaded after disabling the encryption is automatically not encrypted, therefore not producing any error
even if I disable serverside encryption, files on my local laptop can be accessed
the sharing information (e.g. outside links) stay the same
Thank you, but I solved the problem by disabling the encryption and then copying all files and folders on my local device, so that all files get uploaded again. Then I deleted the original encrypted versions. It was a bit of a hazzle, but it worked. On the other server, the decrypt-all command worked.
