Nextcloud web installer

I’ve just installed the Nextcloud on a fresh DO Ubuntu 18.04 droplet via the nextcloud web installer.

On the website is states it will install the latest stable release but it installed the version 16.0.3.
I was expecting it to install 18.0.0 as that’s the latest stable release.
I’ve tried the snap package but that’s also stuck on 16.0.7, what’s the deal with that?

Am I doing something wrong or is the web installer faulty?
Are the versions after 16 production ready? (B/C nothing seems to be updated to them)
How do I install the newly announced Nextcloud Hub?

currently you have to edit the setup-nextcloud.php and change the line

// Nextcloud version
define(‘NC_VERSION’, ‘18.0.0’);

to the version needed (18.0.0 as of today)

You can also download it from the official Respo on GitHub here.

There you have already everything for Nc18.

I’m stuck again for hours.

I’ve installed all the dependencies etc.
Created another mysql user called moltencloud and a database called moltencloud and I gave the user all the permissions. I’ve tried every single possible way of doing this that I could find online and on this forum.

When I enter the information in the web installer I get the following error:

Error while trying to create admin user: Failed to connect to the database: An exception occurred in driver: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'moltencloud'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Is there any solution to this? I’m out of options at this point.

He can’t connect to your database. You are using wich database? Is it local on your pc the database and cloud?

I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 on a DigitalOcean 10$ droplet.

I’m using Apache, MariaDB and PHP ofc.

At this point, I’m following this tutorial but with NC18.0.0:

I am always using this tutorial for the installation.

You can try it if this work.
