NextCloud 12 OVA deployment not accessible from IE

Hey everyone, I’ve got a odd situation.

I’ve deployed several Nextcloud 12 OVA’s from ( and none of them are accessible from Internet Explorer… all IE says is “This site can’t be reached” but Chrome, Firefox, and Edge all work fine.

any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Maybe related to missing HTTP 2.0 support on non Windows 10?

Also make sure that IE is not running in legacy Intranet mode which happens in local networks

To add some more details.

I’ve tried from Win7 and Win10 machine inside and outside the network with the same results.

A friend setup nextcloud 12 using the vmdk from Techandme, his works fine from any IE…

We’ve ran through every menu in the webadmin and nothing is different.


What is a Wireshark trace from the Windows machines with IE saying?

Not a Wireshark master but it looks normal till the machine running IE ends the session.

But actually you don’t want the session to be closed :wink:
The packages before that close would be interesting to find out why the connection is not established correctly. I don’t know if it is easy to post the trace here or rather upload it somewhere.

I had the Same issue.
a quick and dirty fix would be:

nano /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/your_nextcloud_fqdn.conf

just comment
# SSLHonorCipherOrder on

Then it shall work on IE 11 (Win7, Win2012r2, etc…)
Use at your own risks: I do not know what are the security issue with that option disabled!!
