I’ve been running Nextcloud very happily for over a year and updating semi-regularly. I noticed an error on a mobile device (via DAVx^5) when creating a contact that the server threw an error while trying to create the contact. This kept happening so I chalked it up to a bad client and went into the web interface to try and create it; I can create the contact but it doesn’t save there and I get the following message displayed on screen when hovering over a
This contact is not yet synced. Edit it to save it to the server
And it just hangs like that forever. As expected when I navigate away from the page the contact is not saved.
While on the web client I also noticed that the “latest” updated files were around 5 days old, and confirmed that files that I’ve been adding today and yesterday were not on the server. My desktop client (Xubuntu 20.04) didn’t show any visual errors, but when I looked at the Activity tab it gave the following message:
An error occured while opening a folder Server stopped accepting new streams
I also get some more recent messages in the format of:
Error transferring https://my.nextcloud.server/remote.php/dav/files/path/to/failed/files.file
I have confirmed that I can create folders and text files via the web interface and they become available on the web and mobile versions. If I try to upload a small text file of around 530 bytes via the Android client (v 3.15.0) then I get an error of:
Malformed server configuration
I have checked my server configuration via the web client and nothing has changed, although I have historically gotten warnings:
- The PHP memory limit is below the recommended value of 512MB.
- The “Strict-Transport-Security” HTTP header is not set to at least “15552000” seconds. For enhanced security, it is recommended to enable HSTS as described in the security tips .
But I don’t suspect these are to blame as these have always been present.
Has anyone experienced anything similar? I’m hosting on a shared hosting box via Dreamhost with unlimited file storage and running Nextcloud 20.0.08 with php 7.3 fastCGI
