Error keeps flooding my log file and eating my resources

Nextcloud version: 20.0.0
Operating system and version: Linux (my CPanel info doesn’t specify beyond this… sorry)
Apache or nginx version: Apache 2.4.46
PHP version: 7.4.9

The issue: I have the below error flooding my log file constantly, which is making my log file large enough that it maxes out my disk space (my NC is hosted by a provider.) I have to delete the log file to free enough disk space so I can log in, but this is only a temporary workaround. Once a new log is generated, it just continues to fill up with the error all over again. I spoke to my provider’s support and they said it was a software issue that needed to be addressed by a developer. EDIT: I’ve turned off writing permissions for my log file for now… but I definitely don’t want to keep it this way!

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? Yes

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Deleted nextcloud.log file, a new log file generated and continued to fill up with the same error

Please note I just set up my NC yesterday and I’m still pretty new at this and learning, but I’d like to think I can be decent at figuring this out if I’m pointed in the right direction. Even though the errors are all completely foreign to me, I did notice HTTP was mentioned a lot… so in my digging through the KB I found this. Can someone confirm if I’m on the right track or not? Any other suggestions would be very helpful!

Thanks. :slight_smile:
