Trusted Domain in Snap install of Next Cloud

Sorry to hear you’re facing problems :slight_frown:

If you’re urgently looking for support to keep your business running, consider checking out our paid support options.

In order to help you as quickly as possible, before clicking Create Topic please provide as much of the following as you can (you can cut and paste this into your topic):

Nextcloud version (eg, 10.0.2): 11-ish
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 16.04):Ubuntu 16.04
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): Snap Install
PHP version (eg, 5.6):Snap Install
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error and can you replicate it?:

The issue you are facing:
Seen the Trusted Domains message on manual installs, not too hard to fix, but in Snap install you have multiple directories with ‘config’ folder, and a config.php file inside that.

My issue here is that I can’t edit any of the config.php files to add the trusted domains array, because each time it says read only file. I am using Sudo, and still no luck. Tried to change the file permissions with chmod, no go either.

I like how easy the snap install is, but it’s utterly useless if I can’t actually connect to the server once installed, which I can’t until I can add some trusted domains, or simply disable that feature.

I am have the same issue with the snap. Have you managed to figure it out?

So was there never any reply to this? It may be due to my -admittedly huge- ignorance as a newbie, but it seems to me that without being able to edit the list of trusted domains, the Snap install is utterly useless.

Hi @Rybena and @danvp .

Try this command:

sudo snap run nextcloud.occ config:system:set trusted_domains 1 --value=your.fancy.domain

After you do that, then restart nextcloud:

sudo snap restart nextcloud

Then everything should just work.

I hope this helps.

You can also check that value with:

sudo snap run nextcloud.occ config:system:get trusted_domains 1

For example, running:

sudo snap run nextcloud.occ config:system:get trusted_domains 0

probably returns “localhost”.


Thanks for the info, and sorry for the very delayed reply.
This worked perfectly for me!

Good, its worke here thanks dude.
i share whit ngrok to internet

Thanks, this helped me also

I just want to add that this solution worked for me, with a slight modification.

OS: Ubuntu Desktop 20.04.2 LTS
Installation Method: Snap

I found the config.php file, eventually. The path is not intuitive:


But I didn’t need to use this. All I did was modify the snippet provided above with the following:


This gave me the ability to access from any IP or domain. Since I’m only doing this as a test, this is fine, but I would definitely secure this further in a production environment.

I hope this helps others!
