New Install - Unable to login to created user

I was told to go legit and get nextcloud’s official docker image. I have installed Nextcloud into MariaDB but I am unable to login to the user I just created. The page refreshes with a redirect in the address bar. But it just shows the login page nothing beyond it. Any help would be appreciated.

:wave: Could you clarify exact steps you’ve taken to install Nextcloud.

Try restarting your browser. You might not have set a trusted domain or a number of other steps.

What does this refer to? A different installation method?

Support intro

Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Unraid 6.11.5
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): docker nextcloud:latest

The issue you are facing: Im unable to login to login to the nextcloud instance

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? Yes

Steps to replicate it:

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

Cant Login

The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):

$CONFIG = array (
  'htaccess.RewriteBase' => '/',
  'memcache.local' => '\\OC\\Memcache\\APCu',
  'apps_paths' => 
  array (
    0 => 
    array (
      'path' => '/var/www/html/apps',
      'url' => '/apps',
      'writable' => false,
    1 => 
    array (
      'path' => '/var/www/html/custom_apps',
      'url' => '/custom_apps',
      'writable' => true,
  'instanceid' => 'ocv30segxva5',
  'passwordsalt' => 'securityreasons',

  'trusted_domains' =>

  'dbtype' => 'mysql',
  'version' => '',
  'overwrite.cli.url' => '',
  'dbname' => 'securityreasons',
  'dbhost' => 'securityreasons',
  'dbport' => '',
  'dbtableprefix' => 'oc_',
  'mysql.utf8mb4' => true,
  'dbuser' => 'nextcloud',
  'dbpassword' => 'securityreasons',
  'installed' => true,

The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:

Not sure where this is refering to. Inside the container I assume, but nothing in that directory


Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.

Again, nothing in that folder matches this statement. Inside the contatainer that is.

I downloaded the container and ran it from the UnRAID app store. I was having problems with my current install. That was using’s docker image. Very different than the official one. So I decided to go legit this weekend and go straight to the source for my home server (nextcloud:latest)

All I have done is created a DB in MariaDB, and ran the Nextcloud:latest docker. Installed by putting in my username and password for the admin user. and the DB info. Nextcloud installs and drop0s me at the login. I try to login with the account i just created and it goes right back to the login, but adding /login?redirect_url=/index.php/core/apps/recommended&direct=1&user=qw3r7yju4n to the address bar.

This was corrected by restarting my browser
