Exact same issue for me!

Are you sat behind a reverse proxy? - I’m wondering if the issue is related to HAProxy (in my case) causing issues during the login redirection.

I fixed this issue by modifying my config.php as per a post on github.

I had a similar issue regarding the redirect , mine was related to url overwrite protocol option that should be set in config/config.php .
In previous version this was not necessary but apparently since 15.0.2 it is.
So I had to go from (config.php)
{...} 'overwrite.cli.url' => '', {...}
{...} 'overwrite.cli.url' => '', 'overwritehost' => '', 'overwriteprotocol' => 'https', {...}
This did the trick for me…
For information I’m running nextcloud docker behind a reverse proxy (which also handles ssl).
I have found the solution on this thread : nextcloud/server/13713

Hope it helps !

Logout still takes ages, but I believe that is being addressed in v18.


Wow, thats work for me, thanks
