I have a feeling this was caused by my server updating itself to 15 or something like that.
Yesterday I started getting messages from the NC client on my windows laptop that the let’s encrypt cert was incorrect. I thought I had set it to auto renew but it seemed to have gone out of date.
I get on my Ubuntu 18.04 server CLI and I try to renew. It won’t let me, saying port 80 was occupied. I do some research. I stop the nginx server, run certbot renew, it works, no problem, and then I restart server. I go to my public url for my cloud server and it is no longer getting an “incorrect cert” warning. Instead it’s showing me the web installer?
I checked my nc-data folder and all my files are still there.
I’m also getting a low disk warning. I have a vague memory that I had a similar problem when NC updated to 14, because it didn’t have enough hdd space to properly update. But I forget how I fixed that issue. Any ideas?
EDIT: I checked my post history and while my original post was a little vague on the solution I was able to fix stuff by going to the nc-data folder, go to the backups folder, and then copy paste my config.php file over to my server. The www nextcloud folder had a config file in it but it was blank, probably because of of an update.
I stop and restarted my server and it’s now updating to 14.03 (which I could have sworn I was already on…?)
I’m not entirely sure why this keeps happening but I guess it has something to do with my rootfs being full. Why this keeps happening I don’t totally understand, and it seems like something which should be fixed, or would at least be easy to add as a check to the auto updater.
Here was my original thread on this: Uh... Nextcloud installation just completely reinitalized?
EDITEDIT: The update gave me an error again. The config.php file on www nextcloud has been blanked out again. I have repasted stuff in. I reload the page and I’m getting a strange error:

EDITEDITEDIT: I tried again, and now I got a white screen with the following:
