Problem with the new 3.0 iOS app

Hi,
Since the new 3.0 upgrade of the client, I want it to test with a new low-end server the photo library upload.
It doesn’t work quite well.
I don’t seem to encounter the same problem with the android 3.0 version so not sure it’s a problem with the server and I come here in the hope to get some testimonies of other people about that.

the server is on a lime2 olimex board
version 18.05 of nextcloud installed through yunohost setup.
Everything is up to date in link with yunohost.

I have a lot of 404 errors after each end of the upload of each files.
After a while it stops uploading, always at the same point in the photo library and tells me “too much error, check the control center”
Then it goes back always at the same point, one hundred photos earlier and try to upload it again. It’s going on and on.

In the journal I got some fatal errors but that doesn’t relate to all of my tests in terms of timestamp. they are mostly errors in size.
And idea why it would stop always at the same place and then goes back ?

Thanks in advance

I have a similar problem. Lots of 404 errors when auto uploading photos. Nextcloud 19. App for iOS 3.0.0.76. It does manage to upload some and then resets.

Work Around: Disable Most Compatible in the App.
Settings>Advanced> Disable Most Compatible.
This works but reduces functionality.

Me it happens exactly because compatible option is checked.

Is Live Photo checked by any chance ? @sachingupta010

Yes. Live Photo is checked. It uploads as heic files.

Maybe I should try to reset the app then

I’m going to say the same thing I said in my github issue:
can’t we have at least a word from the maintainers ?

We d’ont even know what’s this 404 error?
Is it coming from the server?
Is it the app not finding the file recently uploaded to the server? Because if it is then it’s simply a timeout issue, we just need to increment the timeout or introduce a timer between the upload and the verification.
Is it something related to local iOS storage?

And why is there a limit in terms of error notifications?
What’s this control center that the app keeps telling us about?
Because in logging on the website, so the nextcloud interface I can’t see shit related to any error messages to this specific timestam transfer…

So why is it that complicated to get a clarification on this?

And also
why these keeps happening:

Sabre\DAV\Exception\BadRequest: Expected filesize of 2511397 bytes but read (from Nextcloud client) and wrote (to Nextcloud storage) 2408448 bytes. Could either be a network problem on the sending side or a problem writing to the storage on the server side.

my hdd is fine. the network is fine. and even so, the app and the server should stop uploading the rest of the photo, retry a bunch of times this specific file and if there is already on the server with a different checksum, jsut deletes it and replaces it with the new versio, or make a copy even

Because of the new Live Option, I logged out of the iOS app, renamed the old upload folder to something else and re-logged in. My intention was to upload all my files to Nextcloud again, but with all of the Live photos now. I only have about 6,000 photos so when I only can upload 5 at a time, and then get dozens of 404’s and eventually the app tells me to visit the “Control Center” which I have yet to find where that exactly is.

Just really frustrating that this whole thing with re-uploading all my photos with the Live portion is quite likely to take a month to accomplish.

Quick note: if you want to upload more files before the app explodes, try scrolling really fast to the bottom of the list. It will help and you can upload about 60 files before the app explodes and you have to close it and open again.

Best guess: for photos that aren’t live, the app is checking for the video (.MOV) portion and doesn’t find anything instead of silently continuing.

Did you succeed to upload all your library ? Because my 13k files are still stucked.
So none of the Devs have one single bit of ideas here on why this is happening and how to do something about it ?

I did it the “old fashioned” way, by connecting my iPhone to my computer, copying all the files to local hard drive, manually sorting by year and month, and upload one month at a time. Took about 3 hours, but was infinitely faster than waiting on the app to try and figure it out.

ALL new photos have ZERO problems and uploads the live photos as intended.

It bothers me quite a lot. It’s not the first time we have problems with the iOS app
