Write errors for nfs mount

I can’t seem to get nextcloud to see that its data directory is indeed writable by the http user.

[root@lin-virt02 nextcloud]# sudo -u http ls -alh data

Your data directory is not writable
Permissions can usually be fixed by giving the webserver write access to the root directory. See https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/12/go.php?to=admin-dir_permissions.

An unhandled exception has been thrown:

Any help would be appreciated!

For anyone else having this error its a bug with there filesystem checks.

You can fix this by commenting out

/usr/share/webapps/nextcloud/lib/private/legacy/util.php

#                       } else if (!is_writable($CONFIG_DATADIRECTORY) or !is_readable($CONFIG_DATADIRECTORY)) {

Nextcloud is running on an arch lamp stack php version 7

I can verify that @Xarin’s solution works on Nextcloud 15. Sad that this issue is still not resolved…

still not solved…getting crazy with NFS /data mount because of no write/read permission on folder

I # following files:

/usr/src/nextcloud/lib/private/legacy/OC_Util.php
/var/www/html/lib/private/legacy/OC_Util.php

lines:
“Check if there is a writable install folder.” and "Check if config folder is writable.
