nextcloud 11 and exported calendars

Just figured out that my calendars in thunderbird where not working anymore after the nextcloud 11.0.0. A quick look and comparison I spotted the change, "caldav" changed to "dav" in the url. Example needed?


In thunderbird, you can change this quickly. Stop thunderbird and edit "~/.thunderbird//prefs.js". Search for "/caldav", replace it and thats it.

migration from owncloud 9 to nextcloud 9.0.50

I just migrated my installation from owncloud 9 to nextcloud 9.0.50.
Only one thing is not working, the notes application simple shows me an empty list of notes. beside that, it is more like a new theme.

At the moment we only support manual migrations from ownCloud 8.2 and 9.0 to Nextcloud 9.

To do that please follow the usual upgrading steps:

* Delete everything from the ownCloud folder except data and config
* Download the Nextcloud 9 release from
* Put the files into the folder where the ownCloud files where before
* Trigger the update either via OCC or via web.


I did the following steps.

make a backup of your database

log into your server and cd to the owncloud path


assuming your installation is in the directory "cloud"

./occ maintenance:repair cd .. wget unzip cp -rv cloud/config nextcloud/ cp -rv cloud/data nextcloud/ mv cloud owncloud mv nextcloud cloud cd cloud ./occ upgrade ./occ app:list

enable the apps you want
