Hi, you’ll need to make sure you’ve installed the External Storage app from the appstore as an admin.
As your user or admin you can access external storage under top right menu.

Here is the documentation:

https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/latest/admin_manual/configuration_files/external_storage/amazons3.html

Hi,

Thanks, this worked. However, I am only able to connect with http and these settings:

How do I enable https? The external storage is hosted at eu2.contabostorage.com

Best regards,
Oliver

Ask contabo if there is an ssl issue.
