I ran Owncloud for a long time but now start the migration to Nextcloud.
Because of the underlying OS needs to be updated, too, this is not an inplace upgrade, but a migration.
I have setup an Ubuntu 18 Server with MariaDB 10.8, php 7.4 and Nextcloud 24
So far all is up and running.
To migrate the files I currently use raw SCP, but I wanted to fiddle around with “external storage”.
So I enabled the app and added a global external storage type webdav and pointed to my owncloud server. As authentication I selected “user entered, stored in database”.
Expected behavior: Any user has a folder “owncloud” in his file listing and if he/she clicks it, a prompt for credentials pops up on the first time.
After successful authentication the remote folder should be displayed.
The user does have a folder named “owncloud” in his file list and is prompted for credentials.
But after this nothing happens.
In the nextcloud log it is written “empty response from server”.
I assume, I entered some wrong stuff in the global settings interface, but I am not able to find a correct how to, where owncloud connections are explained.
So my first question is, what do I need to enter exactly in the fields for URL?
My Owncloud server is bound to the FQDN: “https://owncloud.myinternaldomain.local”
The webdav connection would extend that to “/remote.php/webdav”.
But neither the Base URL alone, nor the combination to the webdav URL do work.
What am I doing wrong?
