I’m trying to create a local external storage using the occ command. At this moment I have this command :
docker exec --user 1000 nextcloud php occ files_external:create Home 'local' password::none -c root=/var/www/data
But I got the following error :
Authentication backend with identifier “password::none” not found (see
occ files_external:backends for possible values)
This is what I got doing the command
occ files_external:backends storage:
- name: Local
- identifier: local
- datadir: text
- storage_class: \OC\Files\Storage\Local
And how can I enable sharing ?
I also tried with
password::null but I got the same error. I don’t know what do I have to type in. Thanks for any advice
I figured it out how to create it the mount. Now I wonder how to enable sharing ?
Here is my new command :
docker exec --user 1000:1000 nextcloud php occ files_external:create Home local null::null -c datadir=/var/www/data -c enable_sharing=true --output=json
Hello Exe !
I am trying to do the exact same thing.
So far the best command I have is
sudo -u www-data /usr/bin/php /var/www/nextcloud/occ files_external:create MyMount local null::null --user myuser --config datadir=/myPathTomyFolder/
This works quite : if I log in as the user I will see the share, but the strange thing here is that the external share created this way does not appear in the external share list under my admin user !
I’ve tried to understand the difference between a command-line created external share and a web UI one within the nextcloud database, but no luck so far…
Did you find another way ?
For the moment I have the following command. I think you forget to assign the mount id to a user.
mount_id=$(docker exec --user "$uid":"$gid" nextcloud php occ files_external:create Home local null::null -c datadir=/var/www/data --output=json)
docker exec --user "$uid":"$gid" nextcloud php occ files_external:applicable --add-user=myuser "$mount_id"
I am using the
--user myuser option during creation, so yes this is done.
Actually It works - since the user has then access to his share - but the share is unfortunately not visible under the external share management GUI of the admin user :-\
I’ve found a workaround, but not exactly what we want to do here.
First create an external share using the GUI
Then export this to a file :
sudo -u www-data /usr/bin/php /var/www/nextcloud/occ files_external:export > out.json
Then edit this file, duplicate the declaration and increment the mount_id
Finally import it using
sudo -u www-data /usr/bin/php /var/www/nextcloud/occ files_external:import out.json
It works, the GUI shows the external share. Not very handy…
Are you using the latest version of Nextcloud ?
files_external:import are new in v16
