Hi

Upgrade OK.

One small thing, on page https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/latest/admin_manual/maintenance/manual_upgrade.html

you say
find nextcloud/ -type d -exec chmod 750 {} ;
find nextcloud/ -type f -exec chmod 640 {} ;

but should be
find nextcloud/ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} ;
find nextcloud/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} ;

Thank you

You should not give access to other. It should be 640 and 750. The manual is correct.

I added a few apps recently, but there are probably a few others to check out if they are ready for NC24:

would be great if docker image for beta releases exist as well.
I’m willing to test but only with docker because of my setup…

You could try to build the Docker image for yourself by adjusting the Dockerfile from the official docker repo on Github (examples for the apache image):

https://github.com/nextcloud/docker/blob/master/23/apache/Dockerfile

I think that it should be enough to adjust the NEXTCLOUD_VERSION here:
https://github.com/nextcloud/docker/blob/4f071a6f44024efcd59b362c270080f50f69abf3/23/apache/Dockerfile#L125
and then adjust the path to the download here:
https://github.com/nextcloud/docker/blob/4f071a6f44024efcd59b362c270080f50f69abf3/23/apache/Dockerfile#L135-L138
from /releases/ to /prereleases/

Haven’t tested this… It’s just what came to my mind when I saw your post :slight_smile:

@Chartman123 appreciate your feedback. I read through the Dockerfile at least dozen times already… I’m under impression I could build my beta docker image myself… but this is not the question - existing Beta-testing process completely lacks Docker testing…

There might be good reason for it - if this is intended and no Docker testing is required/requested I’m fine… just. I know there are different view on this point… but in my eyes Container are the really easy to deploy which makes testing new versions with Docker easy - I see no reason why there is no “officialDocker Testing image/Tag/whatever

There has been an issue filed recently requesting beta images. There’s also an answer clearing it up a little why there are no official beta images:

Where do we post any findings or issues? For instance, my setup is 4 PROC and 32 GB memory running Ubuntu Server 22.04 as a VM and so far so good. The Breeze Dark theme was consider an untested app, so I enabled it and appears to be running just fine on NC24 with no issues so far.

Perhaps there is some sort of continuous build process or deployment automation process that can be used to auto-generate such an image. A “daily” snapshot or similar could also be a very cool to allowing testing of a bleeding edge image.

If you find any bugs in an app you would open an issue in the respective Issue tracker of the app. Most of them are hosted on Github and there is usually a link in the description on apps.nexctloud.com. In case of the Breeze Dark Theme this would be the right place: GitHub - mwalbeck/nextcloud-breeze-dark: A Breeze Dark theme for Nextcloud

Well this isn’t exacly a bug. It just means that the maintainer of the app hasn’t released it for Nextcloud 24 just yet. Perhaps because he has not yet come around to test the app with NC24 :wink: But somebody already asked the same question… Compatibilty to Nextcloud 24 · Issue #303 · mwalbeck/nextcloud-breeze-dark · GitHub

Thanks for the info.

So, does it work with PHP 8.1.5 yet?

For me the short links to the documentation are not working (e.g. from admin page):

Give it a try. It should be compatible with php 8.1.

Yes, NC24 works fine: I’m running it on Arch (all packages current), using 8.1.5.
