Reset admin password, snap installed

I just installed Ubuntu server and Nextcloud, but i misspelled my password and now i cannot access it (it contains no files though).

I do not receive an email from “forgot my password”, even though I entered the information before logging out.

I want to reset the password through the terminal, but I cannot manage to get it right.

I’ve tried the following command but the file does not exist.
sudo -u www-data php /var/www/html/nextcloud/occ user:resetpassword admin

I’ve tried running the command om various OCC files (like the follow commands), but nothing seems to work.

Does anyone have an idea how to reset the admin password with on nextcloud installed with snap?

Not sure offhand the occ command required to reset the password, but assuming your first attempt was correct, for the snap it’ll look like this:

sudo nextcloud.occ user:resetpassword admin

Huge thank you, it worked!


Yes, Thank you very much, its worked for me.
