Run Nextcloud with IBM Object Storage (S3)


has anyone of you ever used Nextcloud with IBM Object Storage? I’m not a big fan of AWS, so I decided to go with IBM. I’m able to connect the External Storage Plugin with my Bucket. I’m also able to upload Files and they’re also visible in the IBM Cloud Console. But it’s not possible to view or download a file directly in Nextcloud. There seems to be a 404 Error when tying to download Files.

Also putting all credentials into the config.php didn’t work. (Resulted in Server Error, also on a fresh install)

Some help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

I used to get my Wasabi S3-bucket working with the official app. Alas, you may try to connect via S3FS and mount your bucket as a possible target for the data-folder?

I don’t know how IBM handles this, but the connection to Wasabi is made as shown at - maybe this helps to point you towards the proper direction?

Likewise, shows this without naming the specific S3-compatible provider.

Best regards,

Hey Oliver,

thank you for the fast response. The main reason why it didn’t work was because allow_url_fopen wasn’t enabled on my server. After enabling it everything works well.

Nevertheless I witched to Wasabi because of the low costs and the great performance. Thank you for the hint :slight_smile:

Best Regards
