So I installed Nextcloud on a virtual machine(Ubuntu Server 20.04) on my home server. Everything worked great, I connected all my network computers, and I even connected all our cell phones via the Nextcloud ios/andriod apps so that we can download our photos to Nextcloud.
Then I created a problem for myself. I decided I wanted the Nextcloud to be available on the go. That is where the problem starts. AT&T does not allow me to forward port 80. So I went into setting and changed the port number in all my config files(apache, nextcloud, etc). Forwarded the port on my router to my chosen port(8069).
So when I type in my ip.ip.ip.ip:8069/nextcloud I can login to my nextcloud from any device anywhere that has internet access via a web browser, works great. However, when I try to connect using the ios/android app, I get SSL errors.
“An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made”
I am not really a networking whizz or anything, so I am not sure how to go about fixing this issue. I don’t get any sort of warnings or anything when it comes to the browser connection, even from safari on my iphone. Does the nextcloud app just not allow other port connections?
Thanks in advance.
