Get error message with .ocdata after copying nextcloud-data folder to a new location

I copied the data that is in the nextcloud data folder, I added the permissions for www-data and added the .ocdata file into the root of the copied data folder.

When I change to the new data directory in the config.php and then open the nextcloud webpage, I get the following error message:

Your data directory is invalid Ensure there is a file called “.ocdata” in the root of the data directory.

When I do ls -al in that copied data directory I get

As you may see, it the .ocdata is there.

Is there something missing that Nextcloud is not reading that file in the new location?

I was following this particular guide: https://www.linuxbabe.com/ubuntu/install-nextcloud-ubuntu-20-04-apache-lamp-stack

There is a section called: How to Move the Data Directory

I can revert back with no problem to the original data folder so I am not worried too much about the data the new location since it’s just copied data.

I just want Nextcloud to point to it so that then I can delete the old data folder later

Any help is appreciated!

Did you find a solution to this?
