Yes, you could just use the NextCloud migration tool.

  • Log into the ownCloud server via SSH

  • Go to the folder where ownCloud is installed. That is typically something like /var/www/html/owncloud

  • Use the following command to download the migration script:

  • Then put it in the updater folder:
mv index.php.1 updater/index.php

*. Now go to the URL of your ownCloud server in a browser and log in. Then append to the URL this: updater/index.php so it looks like:

*. Then you can just follow the steps
