Are you using external storage, if yes which one: no

Are you using encryption: yes

Are you using an external user-backend, if yes which one: no

With access to your command line run e.g.:
from within your Nextcloud installation folder

Without access to your command line download the data/owncloud.db to your local
computer or access your SQL server remotely and run the select query:
SELECT * FROM `oc_appconfig` WHERE `appid` = 'user_ldap';

Eventually replace sensitive data as the name/IP-address of your LDAP server or groups.

Operating system:


Browser log
Insert your webserver log here 
Nextcloud log
Well, maybe privately to somebody that needs it
Browser log

Insert your browser log here, this could for example include:

a) The javascript console log
b) The network log
c) ...

After reading other similar posts I went over this and I still have no different results.

AFAIK, encryption is not supported if you want to use CODE/Collabora Online.

Have that changed at any later release?

Wait, wut? Is this because I had “Are you using encryption: yes” in my report? I’m not encrypting the files individually yet, but the site is in https mode.

So are you saying the subdomain that runs the reverse proxy thingie in my sites-enabled can’t be in an encrypted thing like port 443?

It seemed like their examples were explicitly telling me to set it up securely. Even the videos talked about using let’s encrypt during the set-up.

SSL and encryption are not the same thing in the Nextcloud context.

SSL is end to end encryption, which is a secure communication. Meanwhile encryption refers to on rest encryption, file system encryption.

Meanwhile CODE/Collabora Online won’t work without the first (SSL). It won’t work with the second (file encryption).

Thanks for the dialogue. It turns out my problem was of the PEBKAC variety.

My particular set-up is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, but then the first thing I add is Virtualmin. That web interface for Linux Servers takes away a lot of the manual work by automating best practices. One is to have a great firewall set-up.

I added the port 9980 for TCP to the FirewallD tables, applied config, and BOOM Collabora works great now!
