I was wondering if anyone had any guidance on doing a complete re install of Syncloud and Nextcloud on a device that has been previously registered ? I see in the wiki the boot from sata section & tried it on a new sd card that I flashed but the device wasn’t showing up on the network.
I tired to locate it with the ios app but kept getting the notification that " you are not connected to wifi network. Discovery is possible only in the same network as the device is connected" weird bc i turned off cellular data & only connected to the wifi
This is why im at this point : I was doing an update to Nextcloud (to 21) on my odriod hc1 through the web interface (example.syncloud.it). Update worked. Also updated the device through the web interface.
Later I was prompted to sign into my nextcloud account on all devices (desktop client) it wasn’t letting me log in. It kept saying wrong password. Which is weird because I use a password manager & don’t type out the password. I also know it wasn’t an issue with the password because the other week (while on NC v19) I signed in on some new devices I bought. Asking to send the reset password never sent the link to the registered email account. Im locked out of my nextcloud, through devices & web
I ended up trying to tinker and install NC v19 to the device through ssh, but only made things worse.
Hence the fresh install / starting from scratch. Could it be faster to reset it all up as if a new device then trouble shoot? I was only really using the Hc1 for the nextcloud, & kept back ups of the files (things i kept on the nextcloud acct) on a usb stick.
Im trying not to have conflicting devices / credentials
- If i was to go for a fresh install should I deactivate the device from the syncloud.it site first ?
I was looking to format the ssd, reinstall Debian buster, get a new domain for nextcloud and start fresh. This could be accomplished through the uart cable right?
I have a basic understanding of Debain, but don’t dive deep into it often so it tends to slip from my memory.
I know this could be alot to ask for, I couldn’t piece it together through topics already discussed & think creating a thread about a total reset could be useful.
