to be honest, I am not that Linux Guru, that is able to solve every problem. The oposit is the case, to get NextCloudPi up and running for my family to have our contacts and appointments in our responsibility was the biggest things i achieved in IT. But now my cloud crashed after a failed upgrade to Buster and i was to lazy to set up backup functionality. My steps to get NC running again by following this instruction made the things even worse (if i would have followed this instruction at the beginning, the upgrade would have been surely successfull). Now I have no network interface recognized on the pi, the NC configuration seems to be like after a fresh installation, no ssh. So I have to face a new installation of NextCloudPi. But what about my date? There were only a hand full of documents, no pictures, only contacts and calendar entries. Now my questions:
- By setting up a new NCpi, having my contacts and calendar entries in our smartphones, by an initial syncronization with the NC on the first start, will we have out contacts and calendar entries again in the clout from our smartphones or will the data be erased on the smartphones because the nc is empty?
- how can I check if the contacts and calendar entries are still in the database manually?
2a) If the data is in the database, how can I backup this database manually and use it again after setting up a new NCpi?
- Where can I find the documents I saved in the nc?
- Is my way to try to resque my data, set up a new NCpi and migrate the data back into the new NCpi a good strategy or is there a better way to get back to a running NC with my data?
Thank you for your answers in advance
