SQLite is currently being used as the backend database

Hi Team!

I finished my nextcloud installation w/ MariaDB. But i’m still getting this warning message from Dashboard.

" SQLite is currently being used as the backend database. For larger installations we recommend that you switch to a different database backend. This is particularly recommended when using the desktop client for file synchronisation. To migrate to another database use the command line tool: ‘occ db:convert-type’, or see the documentation :arrow_upper_right:."

Any tips how i can fix this? it’s really necessary convert the database? I mean, it’s running in a Mysql/MariaDB. As i know, in this case it shouldn’t necessary to convert.

Kind Regards,


Please show the database related configuration parameters (db*) of your config.php file. Don’t forget to hide the username and password :wink:

I have exactly the same issue.

I just installed NextClound on Fedora 31. Nextcloud version is 18.0.2
I selected mysql (actually I thought I selected MariaDB, but, it seems not)
I do have sqlite installed on the host though.

Either way, I’d like to know what I need to do to correct this issue.

Currently in config.php I have this:

‘dbtype’ => ‘sqlite3’,
