Hi DO community,
For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to move the data folder for a snap Nextcloud I installed on a Droplet. I have 150GB of Block Storage that I want to use for the data folder. The little guideline I made and the steps I took:
lsblk mkfs -t ext4 /dev/sda mkdir -p /mnt/nextcloud_data mount -o discard,defaults /dev/sda /mnt/nextcloud_data lsblk sudo snap connect nextcloud:removable-media nano /var/snap/nextcloud/current/nextcloud/config/config.php sudo snap stop nextcloud sudo mv /var/snap/nextcloud/common/nextcloud/data /mnt/nextcloud_data sudo snap start nextcloud
In config, I setup data directory as /mnt/nextcloud_data …and now I get:
Your data directory is invalid Ensure there is a file called “.ocdata” in the root of the data directory
Any ideas on what went wrong?
