I’m new with NextCloud, I just installed it using the snap package and I’m trying to setup an Amazon S3 as External Storage, but when I go to set it up it tells me that smbclient is not installed, but even after I installed smbclient, it still says it’s not installed and it won’t save the Amazon S3 information.
Nextcloud version (eg, 12.0.2): 15.0.7
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): Ubuntu 18.04
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): 2.4
PHP version (eg, 7.1): 7.2
The issue you are facing:
External Storage keeps saying smbclient is not installed when it is.
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y
Steps to replicate it:
- Go to Apps
- Enable External Storage
- Try to add an Amazon S3 External Storage
