"Failed to connect to Nextcloud" "host not found"

Nextcloud is awesome – thank you!

I am attempting to connect to my desktop-client (version 2.3.3 running Ubuntu kernel 4.15.0-23) to my server. It complains Failed to connect to Nextcloudhost not found.

However, I can connect to Nextcloud’s status.php via my browser (after accepting a self-signed certificate), and my desktop-client on my Manjora Linux machine also connects fine, so I presume it is a problem on the Ubuntu machine’s desktop client…

PS. When i try to access via the ip address instead of host name, then it

  1. Asks me whether I want to trust the untrusted certificate anyway
  2. When I click ok, then I get the message Moved Permanently.
  3. When I click ok, then I’m back to where I need to enter the server address.

Hi Jan-Jan,

I am facing the same issue.

Did you finally resolve that problem ?

Thanks,

Hi @keo

what version of the client do you use? Are you connecting via http or https?
Is the error permanently or sporadically present?

Regards

My first suggestion would be try running a modern version of the desktop client and see if that fixes it. The current version is 2.6.4.

Is this version ‘2.6.4’ available for ubuntu 20.04? I cannot get a connection from desktop on my workstation.
