The issue you are facing: The updater shows information about extra files when trying to update. The full message:
The following extra files have been found:
Some of them are normal files and folders that were created after installation - for example admin and myky are my user folders. Why Nextcloud considers them excessive?
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y
Steps to replicate it:
The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:
The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):
The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:
Thank you. I am following the tutorial, but got stuck at editing MySQL database. It says to run the following query:
update oc_storages set id='local::/new/path/to/data/' where id='local::/path/to/data/';
In my database those fields are saying “home::username”, for example “home::myky” and there are records with some strings (secrets?). Should I change home entries to “local::/new/path/to/data/username”?
Sever heard of something like this. Could you paste the strings here?
See the current discussion below the HowTo and according to this try to just skip the database adjustment. The needed entry seems to be added automatically with latest Nextcloud, even that so far we do not have some official statement about this.
If it’s not working (files are not shown within web ui), and there is really no row like local::/path/ please just add a new one instead of updating any existing one with different content scheme.
Yeah usually I think its also the cleaner/better method (if you are familiar with MySQL console or sure that the command is correct), as there are no obsolete entries left .
In @copytco case indeed it is confusing, that there seem to be no local:: entry at all (?), that can be adjusted.
I am not sure, when the automated entry was added to Nextcloud, as also the devs within HowTo discussion mention it as still necessary . So at least it could be tested as well with NC12. It should be just carefully checked then, if e.g. comments/flags etc. and of course the files itself, still show up on web ui correctly.
If it doesn’t work, add the entry as additional one manually instead adjusting any unknown row, that might have different reason, of course .
I actually moved all of my stuff to nextcloud/data folder and adjusted config file. In the database I changed home:: entries to see what will happen. When I resumed Nexcloud instance it created new records in oc_storages table with home::username and unfortunately had to recalculate weight of all the files. I do not know if some comments etc. were lost because I did not have any. Later on Nextcloud updated without any problems. Below is screen from oc_storages table:
