How can I recreate/regenerate the oc_filecache table? [SOLVE : Here is the schema for oc_filecache]


I had a problem with my oc_filecache table being corrupt. I searched on how to fix this and, unfortunately, one of the first “solutions” that I found was “delete the table then recreate it”. I succeeded at the “delete the table” part, but I can’t find any information on how to recreate it…

Yes, I now know that I should have truncated.
I tried a few occ commands : “maintenance:repair”, “files:scan” and even “upgrade”, but none worked.

Can someone please tell me which command to run?
Or, give me the schema of their oc_filecache table so that I can create it in my database?

Thank you,


P.S. I didn’t give any system info because I don’t know where to get it, since Nextcloud can’t run…

occ files:scan --all -vvv should tell you what it is doing.

Thanks for the reply :slight_smile:

I already ran files:scan, it just tells me that the table is missing… then it stops there.

Ah you did not empty one but rather delete it. OK then you have to recreate it fully with sql.

This is how my backup looks like using mysqldump. It’s from Nextcloud 17. It creates a new empty table with correct columns. occ files:scan --all -vvv should work now.

This seems to have worked! You are a life saver! Well… A server saver for sure!

Thank you so much for taking the time to create that schema for me!


P.S. I was able to connect via the web, and Linux client. All seems good!


I’m glad to have helped :slight_smile:
