I am doing all via the command line.
I've a separate data directory (not included below public/data).
Here are my simple steps (database backup not included).
I did the upgrade from the latest 12 release.
This is a KISS tutorial.
cd <root path>
mv public public_12_0_5
mv nextcloud public
cp public_12_0_5/config/config.php public/config/config.php
rsync -rv --dry-run public_12_0_5/apps public/apps
#rsync -rv public_12_0_5/apps public/apps
Good luck on your side.
Currently, I've found one issue with my news application.
I needed to execute following SQL statement:
UPDATE oc_jobs SET reserved_at = 0 WHERE (argument = '["OCA\\News\\Cron\\Updater","run"]' OR class = 'OCA\\News\\Cron\\Updater');
Thanks to the how to fix it section.
I don't thing nextcloud 12 is the issue here. Simple the old used "caldav" application and the connected AndroidCaldavSyncAdapater is not working anymore.
I've removed the users everywhere as well as the application. I've switched the phone to use the DAVDroid installable via F-Droid.
The setup is so easy I won't write a howto section here.
Just be fair and donate some money to DAVDroid since the application is working out of the box.
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.
In thunderbird, you can change this quickly. Stop thunderbird and edit "~/.thunderbird//prefs.js". Search for "/caldav", replace it and thats it.
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 https://nextcloud.com/install/43
* 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"
cp -rv cloud/config nextcloud/
cp -rv cloud/data nextcloud/
mv cloud owncloud
mv nextcloud cloud
#enable the apps you want
