External Storage from NTSF HD

Hello to everybody,
I’m new to this forum, and i have a little knowledge of linux. I’ve installed the latest version of Nextcloud on a new centos 8 os. I have a problem with the external HD.
I have a ntfs HD mount on my server, i see files from the web but the files are unreadable even if i download them.
I gave it a try with an usb format once in ntfs once in ext4, with the ext4 format all goes ok but with ntfs no, same problem. I’m sure that i can read files from ntfs format because in my previous server i did it.
I think that the problem is when i try to launch this command:

chcon -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t /var/www/html/nextcloud/data

in ntfs format goes in error

chcon: failed to change context of ‘file_xxx.xxx’ to ‘system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_rw_content_t:s0’: Operation not supported

but i don’t know what the problem is.
Can anybody help me?


‘dbtype’ => ‘mysql’,
‘version’ => ‘15.1’,
Nextcloud version => ‘18.0.2’
OS: centos 8
Server version: Apache/2.4.37 (centos)
PHP 7.2.11 (cli)

chcon: failed to change context of ‘file_xxx.xxx’ to ‘system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_rw_content_t:s0’: Operation not supported

ntfs does not support the same stuff a linux-filesystem supports. there are linux-drivers which support r/w etc. on ntfs (eg ntfs-3g) but not ALL properties.
i think as long as you do not have a special requirement for using ntfs you are much better off with a linux-fs (ext4, btrfs, …). if you need fs-access on windoze for this disk you could try to use a windoze-driver for a linux-fs (eg winbtrfs); but pls be careful with productive data in this case.

thank you for your answear,
i was thinking to convert all my HDs to ext4 but i have near 6 TB of datas so i hoped that i could use my old format.
I will buy a new hd to transfer all my datas XD.
