That being noted, i am an unexperienced linux engineer…
I’ve got it pretty much running but I ran in a problem and have a question

I have an SSL certificate on apache and this works ok, also the redirect of http to https

  1. When i try to login via the webpage it takes like 30 seconds, when i am logged in the page seems to react normally?

I think it has something to do with my database not closing connection or some kind?

MariaDB [(none)]> show status like ‘Conn%’;

  1. my config file says sqldb is sqlite but i tought mysql?

Could anyone help me out on this one?

That’s the reason why it is so slow.

You need MySQL.

Dam missed that… how van i change it? When i just change te config line i get a blank page


you can migrate the database. Nexctlcoud Documentation - Converting Database Type
I’ve done it from mysql to postgres … works perfekt.

After that you can change the database type, port and host in the config file.
But if it’s a fresh installation, you should start from the beginning?!?!
