Error: PDO SQLite driver is not available

Trying to finally get a working Nextcloud 18.0.1

In the logs I found:

Collectives full-text search is not operational, because the PDO SQLite driver is not available.

How to solve this?

Nothing Here!

Where can I ask?
On github?

Correct?

Did you install php-sqlite module?

Many THX for taking care:

No !?
Pls tel me How-to

some of this?

This is a webserver module (extension).

Ahh…
How to check?

Now I have this:

pls tell me what App’s has to be installed
image

and what has to be configured
many THX

I am not familiar with collectives app.

Please add all necessary information like Nextcloud version, webserver type and version, os version, related log file content.

This help other users to help you.

The apps in your screenshots are meant to search through documents in the Files app. Collectives has its own (full-text) search, so you don’t need to install any additional apps to be able to search in Collectives. However, the php-sqlite module must be installed on your system in order for it to work.

See here: Nextcloud Collectives

…and here: GitHub - nextcloud/collectives: Collectives is a Nextcloud App for activist and community projects to organize together.

How to get this installed.

Please tell me you are not using Cygwin to run Nextcloud on a Windows system :wink: Even if, for reasons I will never understand, you insist on using Windows to run your Nextcloud server, why not use HyperV / Windows Subsystem for Linux, which provides you with a native Linux environment?

Anyways, I never used cygwin, so I can’t really help. But you could try to find the correct package name with the apt list command:

apt list *php*sqlite*

NO! - didn’t know that Nextcloud can be installed on Windows :upside_down_face:
I’m using this ISO to

Running in a ESXi VM
This is based on Debian.

Nothing happens here:

I was confused by your screenshot, because Cygwin is (also) a UNIX-like command line interface for Windows. I have no idea if it’s possible to run Nextcloud with it, and honestly, I have no desire to find out :wink:

Ah ok. :slight_smile: What’s the output of:

apt list *php* --installed

and:

apt list *php*sqlite*

THX for taking care
This output is from:

It was recommended to me as a beginner to use instead of putty!
What do you think?

Is it possible that you wern’t actually connected to your Nextcloud server, when you ran the command? Maybe that was also the reason why you got the Cygwin third party repo warning when you first tried it…

Now that you’re apperantly connected to your server, try again to run:

apt install php8.1-sqlite3

Sorry, I’ve been mainly a Linux user for many years now, so I have no idea what the best Windows SSH clients and terminal emulators are. However, since OpenSSH is officially available for Windows, I would probably just use that in Powershell: Get started with OpenSSH for Windows | Microsoft Learn

You are using it completely wrong!

Please start reading manuals instead of doing and doing without using your head!

You must create the ssh session within your MobaXterm. When you open MobaXterm, you only get a terminal at your windows host! That is not what you want!

You have to create a ssh session to your machine:

then you get a remote shell on your remote host.

Read the help and the manual pages!!!


Much luck,
ernolf

I think Yes?!

What else should be done her?

Really?!?!

Sorry but I’m actually starting to doubt whether you should host your own Nextcloud server in the first place.

The following points are the bare minimum you need to be familiar with to even think about running Nextcloud on your own server:

  • How do I connect to my Linux server via SSH
  • How do I navigate the file system on my Linux server
  • How do I edit config files on my Linux server
  • How does the package manager work on my Linux server

Or do you really want to open a forum post for every click you’re supposed to do and every simple Y/N question your operating system asks you?
