Hi,

Please never ever post your credentials/ passwords anywhere on the Internet. I just edited your post and removed the sensitive data. But please treat your compromised!

Regarding your issue:
You don’t have a domain, do you? Does Nextcloud run on your PC/ laptop where you are also using the browser to access the Nextcloud instance?

@Schmu: Did you redact a domain name in the above screenshot? I’m asking because of your question “You don’t have a domain, do you?” (the configuration does not contain an anonymized domain name).

@optimistic5: I came across the same ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR yesterday–if you actually try to reach the mentioned Nextcloud instance using a public (sub)domain name, you might want to check whether you use Origin’s 1.1.1.1 DNS server on the client machine. If that is the case, try to temporarily switch to, e.g., 8.8.8.8 (Google) and compare the results. If the error vanishes, here’s what’s the likely underlying reason: By accessing 1.1.1.1, query results may differ if the target domain is/was served by Cloudflare and there’s (still) an IP address that is part of their network associated with that domain (in that case, there’s a possibility that returned IP addresses differ; this is by design to speed things up).

No, I didn’t. There was really no domain name in his copied config file.

thanks, I checked before submitting the post, but missed it.

I forgot to mention that I did self signed certificate for IP adress, I have no domain yet.
I have this error when access nextcloud from other network with external IP.
I can access nextcloud without any problem at my local network with local IP.

So you said that I should change my dns configuration at computer from I want to connect my nextcloud?
I don’t see this is the issue because I tried connect from different locations.

If I made self signed SSL certificate can I access nextcloud with external IP?

As long as you can ensure that at least one of the machines you use to connect to your Nextcloud instance is not using Origin’s 1.1.1.1, you can rule out the case mentioned above.

Yes, as long as the certificate is accepted by the clients. Note that a certificate is linked to a domain (the IP address of the server is irrelevant as long as it can be reached), so you need to ensure that the Nextcloud server accepts requests under that domain name and that all machines use that very domain name to access the Nextcloud server.
