Created a Nextcloud droplet and the admin interface isn't available to complete the setup

I created the droplet but when I try to access the admin interface I get

Unable to connect An error occurred during a connection to my.droplet.ipv4:8080.

Also, I could find no file named nextcloud.occ on the droplet. Seems like Nextcloud was not installed?

Update: I created a new Nextcloud droplet and this time I was able to access the Nextcloud AIO setup page. Don’t know what I did differently.

Hello @kenbuch

You can check if the Apache service is running and if not to restart it.

  1. service apache2 restart

In this way Nexcloud should work fine and you should be able to load the admin page at: https://droplet-ip-address:8080

I would assume you used the MarketPlace Droplet, is that correct?

If yes, make sure you have followed all the instructions otherwise you might not have your NextCloud app installed properly.
