The issue you are facing: In the company i work for, we are working some days from home, those days the employees have to connect via VPN to make a proper syncing of their files with nextcloud, i need a way to track if the employees are syncing their files. thx for your answers

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):

Steps to replicate it:

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:


The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):


The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:


Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.


I’m concerned about the statement
