Updater not recognizing custom data directory


I’m currently using NextCloud version 22.1.1.

The installation was done automatically by the hosting provider (1blu.de) where I have no SSH access. It uses a weird custom path for the data directory that looks like this: .htrfc9zv2suwqi.data

Now I’m trying to update to version 22.2.0 but the updater complains about finding these two extra files:

  • .htrfc9zv2suwqi.data
  • .htc56uvd.appconfig.php

even though the directory .htrfc9zv2suwqi.data is specified as datadirectory in the config.php file.

Does anyone have a tip how to work around this problem? The hosting provider doesn’t seem to care about proving support, so I’m on my own.
