Kerberos authentication App (SSO/SAML App) does not seem to work?

I’m trying to use kerberos authentication within Nextcloud, but I can’t seem to get it to work. I’m following
https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/11/admin_manual/configuration_server/sso_configuration.html?highlight=kerberos

I’m using ubuntu 16.04/NC11.0.1 (and .2)

So basicly my steps are;

  • install basic NC system
  • install libapache2-mod-auth-kerb
  • restart apache
  • enable SSO/SAML app
  • click "use environment variable"
    After that nothing happens and I return to the same screen. I’m seeing an error in the apache logs;
    [Tue Apr 04 11:15:32.052649 2017] [authz_core:error] [pid 1640] [client 10.20.20.94:64095] AH01630: client denied by server configuration: /var/www/html/nextcloud/data/.ocdata

I haven’t researched this much, I did find a similar post from someone who had the same problem

I’m guessing apache needs some additional config if I duckduckgo the AH01630 error, but I have to do some other things now. I will look into this more and will update this post as I find things, but maybe someone already has some usefull info to share about this?
