"Network Error" for new account at reset password page


I am new to nextcloud and really liking the project.

I tried to deploy the reference docker-compose project with letsencrypt and setup gmail smtp to onboard new user.

reference deployment:

But, when the first new user clicks on “set your password” the reset password page is giving me “Network Error” when I tried to reset the password. What is the issue here? I had taken a screenshot below.

Thanks for help.

Hi there,

I know I’m digging up an old thread, but I happen to have the same problem the solution(s) proposed in this and another thread unfortunately don’t help me – the problem persists. To be precise, the URL Nextcloud uses for making the requests still is http://... which seems to cause the problem.


Any ideas on this?

Thanks & best regards

Have had the same problem. Clearing the browser cache solved the problem.
