Locate and edit httpd.conf

Hello all,

I am new to Nextcloud. I’ve managed to get everything up and running on a Raspberry Pi 4, but I keep getting timeouts/errors on large files uploaded via the client and web interface.

From looking around here, it seems that I need to update the timeout in httpd.conf

However, I am really new to all of this and have:

  1. No idea how to access httpd.conf
  2. No idea how to edit httpd.conf

Can some please provide me with some simple instructions? I would really appreaciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Thats depending, of what kind of server you have? nginx or apache?
Docker or something else?

It’s Apache. I used Nextcloudpi for my install.

You will find it here:

Thank you! And how do I access and edit it? Can someone please give me some instructions. I am very much a noob to ssh.

You can edit the file with nano
sudo nano /etc/apache2/...
You must restart Apache2.
