So I tried using ownCloud a few years back and it was clunky and unusable
Is Nextcloud better? Is it just the same thing?
It depends which side you mean. The server works flawlessly for me and the desktop apps for synchronization have been very good.
The Android app is okay. I've been having difficulty lately with getting photos to automatically synchronize with it from my phone. I ended up using a different app (Folder Sync) to do that and it works fine now.
It's a lot better than I remember
Mind you, I'm only trying to make it work for myself, not a whole lab of people
But even still, the RSS reader might be worth it alone haha
Okay never mind
The RSS reader isn't updating
@ksteimel Welp, I just tried to upgrade Nextcloud, hoping that would fix it
Now it's in "maintenance mode" and locked me out
I take it back entirely
Nextcloud is utterly useless
Sorry you had that experience. I've never gotten that on the stable channel. Were you updating from 12 to 13? There's a command you can run to switch of maintenance mode.
Did you set up nextcloud to use a system cronjob? The default Ajax triggered cron doesn't have the ability to update the rss feeds.
@ksteimel Updating from 13.0.1 to 13.0.2 and using system cron (not webcron)
I found the file to edit to turn off maintenance mode, but when I go to the update page again to see what's going on it says, "Step 4 is currently in process. Please reload this page later."
@ksteimel What solution?
@ksteimel Yeah I did that, tried running it again, same error
I wonder if there's a log of errors from RSS, so I can at least figure out why it doesn't update
@ksteimel Okay I think I got things running
I wish I had been more systematic about it
By the end I was just getting frustrated and trying stuff and tbh, I'm not sure what worked
Nextcloud: still needs work
@ksteimel Yeah I *love* the idea of Nextcloud, hoping I can get it to work out for me
