I am using Esxi for my VM server and downloaded the preconfigured image from https://www.techandme.se/nextcloud-vm/
· Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS 64-bit
· Apache 2.4
· PostgreSQL 10.3
· PHP 7.2
· Linux Kernel: 4.1
The Esxi web console to access VM’s has a bug where it periodically adds in extra letters in keystrokes. So when I am performing the initial installation I ‘might’ be adding extra keys during the forced password change. I can log in via the web browser but sudo within the shell has my password incorrect (same password for ubuntu and nextcloud).
- Is there a way for me to SSH into the VM prior to the install so I can ensure I am typing passwords correctly?
I started my journey yesterday with Owncloud (sorry). I have it setup and was playing. I have a SMB share from my freenas box added to Owncloud & it works fine.
I read some more & see that the community / support / experience is better with Nextcloud & am giving that a try. I keep trying to add a SMB share to Nextcloud and I keep getting a red box (indicating failure).
External mount error
There was an error with message: Empty response from the server. Do you want to review mount point config in admin settings page?
When I put Owncloud & Nextcloud side by side for the adding external storage – the settings are identical but it fails.
- Any idea why / how the SMB share would be failing in Nextcloud but work in Owncloud?
I am using a separate share which when tested in windows works fine with the nextcloud credentials.
