New updates have been made available for Nextcloud Hub: 18.0.1 is here!

Nextcloud 18.0.1, with over 70 fixes, brings more stability, UI improvements and security to your server. As always this release is designed to be a safe and quick upgrade.

Note: Running web facing software without regular updates is risky. Stay up to date with Nextcloud releases of both the server and its apps, for the safety of your data! Customers can always count on our upgrade support if needed!

Nextcloud 18.0.1

Get it through the automatic updater

If you are waiting for the updater, Nextcloud 18.0.1 will be made available directly to all instances that are currently running Nextcloud 18.

If you haven’t updated to 18 yet, and you are still running Nextcloud 17 on your server, keep in mind that we will roll out Nextcloud 18.0.1 incrementally. We make it available to some 10-20% of our user base through the updater, increasing that percentage every few days after that.

Don’t want to wait but have the convenience of the updater? Switch to the Beta channel! You can then update to 18 and switch back to stable without issues.

Nextcloud 18.0.1: over 70 improvements

This first minor release to our latest and greatest (see announcement) brings a wide range of minor improvements that fix corner case bugs, updates or deals with small design flaws. Fixes include:

You can find the full 18.0.1 changelog on our website.

Stay safe: keep your server up-to-date!

Minor Nextcloud releases are security and functionality bug fixes, not rewrites of major systems that risk user data! We also do extensive testing, both in our code base and by upgrading a series of real-world systems to the test versions. This ensures that upgrades to minor releases are painless and reliable. As the updates not only fix feature issues but also security problems, it is a bad idea to not upgrade!

This is, of course, also true for apps: Keeping them updated has security benefits, besides the new features and other bug fixes.

If you are maintaining a mission-critical Nextcloud system for your enterprise, it is highly recommended that you get yourself some insurance (and job security… who gets blamed if the file handling system isn’t working as expected?). A hotline to the core Nextcloud developers is the best guarantee for reliable service for your users, and the job safety of you as system administrator.


an error is faced when i tried to update it with updater.phar
error is:

Could not do request to updater server: error:0200100D:system library:fopen:Permission denied

Can some one please help.

What is the user id you are using to update? It has to be the user id of the web server that owns the nextcloud directory.

I’d love seeking on S3 to be fixed :frowning:

Inam using www-data as user
sudo -u www-data php updater.phar

In version 18 the system does not give the option to modify the administrator user with whom the nextcloud instance is created. It does not allow you to modify user storage or add to other created groups

I think this is what you describe. I cannot use NC18 because of this. Cannot change any user setting. The solution seems to be on its way since 2 days.
