I followed the tutorial for installing Nextcloud on Ubuntu 18.04, but I get to the last step I get a 404 at the end..

I followed the steps in the tutorial on installing Nextcloud on an Ubuntu 18.04 server, but when I got to the last step I wasn’t able to configure Nextcloud because I got a 404 message. I’ve tried changing the ownership of the Nextcloud directory but I still get 404. Can anyone help?



It’s possible the configuration file is wrong. Can you provide you it here in order to see if everything is correct?

Alongside the configuration file, can you please confirm the following :

Path to the root of your installation Ownership of the root folder Permissions of the root folder Have you created the database for the service

Once we have this information, we should be able to further troubleshoot the problem.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks for the help! Here’s the content of my config.php file, found in /var/www/html/nextcloud/config/config.php:

$CONFIG = array (
  'instanceid' => 'ocqwzk5v4jkq',
  'passwordsalt' => 'F49DxXdKC9Rfmao/FbDSpg8AXF87yG',
  'secret' => 'hNgBS5HBfGPwa4sYIf/lN/Bl0JV474LkxsciZITDNtN5hopU',
  'trusted_domains' => 
  array (
    0 => '',
  'datadirectory' => '/var/www/html/nextcloud/data',
  'dbtype' => 'mysql',
  'version' => '',
  'overwrite.cli.url' => '',
  'dbname' => 'nextcloud',
  'dbhost' => 'localhost:5432',
  'dbport' => '',
  'dbtableprefix' => 'oc_',
  'dbuser' => 'kwright',
  'dbpassword' => 'wizard',
  'installed' => true,

As seen above, the path to the Nextcloud root is /var/www/html/nextcloud. It is owned by the www-data user, and its permissions are 755. The database has been created, with the name nextcloud.
