Can't Connect to Server from iPhone X

I have installed the owncloud app and am trying to create a new account. After entering my server address and pressed on continue, I get the error message: Connection to the server could not be established. It works perfectly with the desktop app.
What goes wrong ?

@Thomas21You should find more information in the logs:

He Michael,
thank you for your Mail.

Please see attached my Logfile…

Kind regards


Admin-EDIT: removed file as it exposed ownCloud installation

Hi Thomas,

I would recommend to also read the log file, the error is pretty obvious:

"Verbindung zum Server konnte nicht hergestellt werden." 
 curl -I https://oc.domain.tld/status.php

Setup HTTPS on your server, I recommend Let’s Encrypt:

I think this happened:

  1. @Thomas21 entered oc.domain.tld in the field for the server URL
  2. iOS app automatically prefixed it with https:// ==> https://oc.domain.tld

To connect to a non-SSL server, you need to enter explicit http://oc.domain.tld, and you need to approve a 2nd warning to really, really connect via an insecure connection.
