Nextcloud Snap users, please list the issues you're facing


And I did try changing the folder permissions temporarily (to 777) but that didn’t work either and changing them (/var/snap/nextcloud/12142) back to 755 seems to have stopped uploads completely.

For now I’ve only added two files both set to 640 (apparently folders should be 750 and files 640). Both of these are not showing up on the client side (but are definitely in the right folder alongside two other files uploaded via the client which are showing up).


For me, it installs fine and I can reach the http site. But when I “snap Nextcloud.enable-https custom -s cert.crt key.csr”. it successfully installs the ssl cert files but there is an error when restarting apache. Apache shows as inactive. I have then disabled https but apache remains inactive. I also tried enable https with each ssl file renamed to .pem

A message I get is that the is a syntax error at line 69 of ssl.conf. cert.pem is either missing or empty.

I entered /var/snap/nextcloud/11891/certs/live. The cert file is present. I then open it and it has the same key as our custom .crt file. So it is neither missing nor empty. And the path on line 69 of ssl.conf points to the location where cert.pem is located.


You’re more likely to get help logging issues on the project itself.


I am facing a SSL handshake issue from an android 4.4.2 device.

i have a setup where I sync my contancts on Nextcloud with multiple Android devices using Davx5 (davdroid). It used to work fine but now one of my devices stopped syncing. Don’t know for sure but I have a sense that this could be related to the snap update specific to the Android version because my other android device (and thunderbird as well) is continuing to sync properly.

The error I am getting from Davx5 says:

2019-04-16 10:35:50 2 [HttpClient] <-- HTTP FAILED: SSL handshake aborted: ssl=0x5e210c78: Failure in SSL library, usually a protocol error

error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure (external/openssl/ssl/s23_clnt.c:744 0x5e2b2830:0x00000000)

Full Error Log:

From what I read on Davx5 forums, this could be about incompatible ciphers ( But I am not sure what they are, how to test or change them in a nextcloud snap installation setting.

Any idea how to proceed with troubleshooting?
