[SOLVED] Decrypting encrypted files (using the default Server-side encryption)

Hello there.

To put it brief I tried to save my volumes from an existing Nextcloud installation during a reinstall but overwrote them. Now I have all my data in a backup, but that is encrypted using the default server-side encryption.

I think I should have all the necessary components to decrypt my data, but I don’t know how. Is there a tool that I can use?

(example file)

Is there any hope or is my backup useless?

I am using this as a wake up call to do best practices, documentation and test restoring backups after creating them.

if you have data and config files this should help:

Thanks a lot! This actually works really well once I figured out how to get the script running.

You saved me a lot of despair.
