For some reason my install stopped working after the past few snap updates. After going through the snap logs I can’t see what’s failed. Reverting the snap now throws a 500 internal server error.
I’ve decided to move away from snaps and want to recreate using docker. All my files are stored in S3. I have a backup of the config directory and the mysql database. I think I’ve managed to put nextcloud into maintenance mode before taking a backup.
I have a few questions:
- Is the config and mysql backup enough to recreate in docker?
- If the dB is shot can I create a new one and rebuild it using the salt and encryption key from the config?
- If that doesn’t work is it possible to decrypt my files using the salt/encryption key?
- My understanding is that redis is just used for ephemeral data so I don’t need a backup is that true?
I still have the original install but I’ve stopped the snap to make sure no more damage is done. Any help would be appreciated.
