Just upgraded my production (subscription) server to 7.9, and ran into some trouble with Nextcloud. First, after the upgrade, when I browsed to the Nextcloud web UI, I was prompted to complete the upgrade:
I clicked the button, it completed without apparent error, and I was then able to log in. But now, I get a message at the top of every page (I can close it, but it comes back on the next page load) saying, “Invalid private key for encryption app. Please update your private key password in your personal settings to recover access to your encrypted files.”:
So I go to my settings, under Security, and see this:
Well, that’s a bit of a problem–my login password hasn’t changed. So I entered my password in both fields and clicked “Update”. Nothing happened.
So, off to Google, and I find this:
Following that guide (and adapting the
occ command to Neth), I find this:
[root@neth ~]# sudo -u apache scl enable rh-php73 -- php -dmemory_limit=512M /usr/share/nextcloud/occ encryption:status - enabled: false - defaultModule: OC_DEFAULT_MODULE [root@neth ~]#
The next step in that guide is to enable encryption (
occ encryption:enable), but when I did that, I borked Nextcloud (sadly, I didn’t save the error output). Disabling encryption (
occ encryption:disable) produced the same error, as did any other
So I rolled back to the pre-upgrade snapshot I wisely took, and have repeated the steps above, prior to the
occ encryption:enable. The message still appears in Nextcloud. Where to from here?
