Problem with Permissions in NextCloud with Local External Storage

Hi everyone,

I’ve been struggling with a problem for the past two weeks and need help. I have Nextcloud set up with the External Storage app to share a Local Dataset. Here’s the issue:

  • Current Situation: I can see the folders within the dataset and create, modify, and upload new files through Nextcloud.
  • Problem: I am unable to access files or folders that were created within the dataset prior to the Nextcloud installation.

This leads me to believe it’s a permission issue, but I’m not sure how to resolve it. Here is the configuration for the www-data user:

Any help would be would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

You need to run the “occ files scan” command from the pod shell. I believe someone asked that in another thread somewhere. You’ll have to search for it.

Amazing, thank you! This solved it.
