File Versioning enabled but not working

Nextcloud version 11.0.3:
Synology DSM 6.1.3:
Apache (Apache 2.4.25):
PHP version (7):

I wonder how the file versioning is working. When I log into the web-interface and select a file there is the tab with versions but it doesn’t display any versions.

Is there a way to enable/disable versioning?
In the apps I have Versions 1.4.0 by Frank Karlitschek, Bjoern Schiessle running.

Any idea what else I should check out?


You won’t see any versions until you make changes to any existing files that have already synced with Nextcloud and allow those changed files to resync. Can you confirm that you have changed already synced files? Do you only see the most recent version after the changed file syncs?

I made plenty of changes to files already. But they never show up in the
versions. Is it because the database I am syncing has already a lot of
files? I am now at 250 000 files or so.


in in the versions directory on the filesystem anything?

yes there actually are files. are these files in the same file format just with a *.vxxxxxxxxx ending?
so if i copy the file and delete the ending I end up with the file I need?

but ideally the front end of the cloud should show me the different versions.

So it looks like the versioning is working it is just not displayed properly. Any suggestions where the problem might be?


Yes that are the files, with ls -l you see the dates, so you can actually see if versioning itself works but the frontend, doesn’t show that.
If thats the case, perhaps open an issue at github.
