The issue you are facing:
When users are logging into new devices they are getting locked out A password usually allows them to get access, but is not working at all for an Ipad device we have in house.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):

Steps to replicate it:

  1. logging in as user on a mobile device or ipad
  2. the users are not able to login and password change does not allow user to login either.

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.


You’ll have to provide more information about your installation, as requested in the posting form.

In general, for this type of issue I would start by looking at your Nextcloud log while logged in as an admin

I updated some of the info. I am trying to get more for you. Sorry I am a newbie at nextcloud.
