Missing ssh password

Hello Dear Nextcloud community!

Nextcloud version (eg, 18.0.2): 19.0.0snap1
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Linux 4.4.0-1135-raspi2 armv7l
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): ?
PHP version (eg, 7.1): 7.3.18

The issue you are facing:

I’ve created the nextcloud box some years ago (before i started using password managers to save all my login data. i have the login to my nextcloud box and can access the box through the ip-adress just fine. the box is working (although only over http) but i’ve seen some suggestions (to increase PHP file size and enable https).

the problem is i’ve not noted down my ssh login password (and username) so i can’t get root access to configure those things. is there any way for me to reset this from the nextcloud web-interface?

alternatively can i somehow easily port my settings and data over to a fresh installation without those login details?
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. haphazardly set up nextcloud box
  2. forget vital login details
  3. realize i f***'d up.

is there anything i can do? or do i need to format my harddrive re-download the raspi2 image and then start from scratch?

Perhaps you can use the user “pi” and the password “raspberry”.

well atleast it recognized the pi user. so thats something i guess. no luck on the password though. its not like i can just brute force it.
