PHP version (eg, 8.3): PHP 8.1.2

The issue you are facing:

Hello, I set up Nextcloud for the first time.
I downloaded setup-nextcloud.php(Nextcloud Setup) and installed.
I was able to upload images, and it seems to be working fine, but I can’t edit the images.
When I click(enlarge) an image and click [edit], it returns to the image list page. At this point, if I click on the image, it says [There is no plugin available to display this file type].

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Access All files > Photos
    URL: https://mysitename/index.php/apps/files/files/12?dir=/Photos

  2. Click an image and click edit
    URL: https://mysitename/index.php/apps/files/files/608?dir=/Photos&openfile=true

  3. It returns to the image list page without anything happening
    URL: https://mysitename/index.php/apps/files/files/608?dir=/Photos&openfile=true

  4. Click an image, it says [There is no plugin available to display this file type]

  5. If I reload the page, this error is resolved.

I tried setting the logs of Apache2, PHP-FPM, and Nextcloud to debug mode, but nothing is being output.
If you have any information, please let me know. Thank you.

Just to be on the safe side: Have you looked at Nextcloud’s own log? It is called nextcloud.log and is located in the data folder. If you do not know where this folder is located: See datadirectory in your config.php.

Another thought: According to the source code, this error message appears if no compatible MIME type is sent. This may indicate an incorrect web server configuration.

The OP is not alone.

I encountered this error after upgrading (via the web updater) from 29.0.1 to 29.0.2. Running on Debian Bookworm. Accessing the server via a web browser.

I experience the exact same problem the original poster has described. When I open an image and select the edit button the server returns to the list of images. At this time if I click on any image I will see this error pop up. After I refresh the page via the browser (FF) refresh button I can click on any image and it will show without any error pop up.

This cycle can be repeated to no end.

I checked my nextcloud log, set to INFO, the log is empty. If I set the log to show DEBUG I get a couple of pages.

Could you expand on your idea that this is could be an incorrect web server configuration? I don’t see anything in the apache logs that is new.

Does nextcloud need additional software that wouldn’t normally be installed?
