Decrypt-all but password recovery key not found



decrypt-all but password recovery key not found

Steps to reproduce

  1. enable encryption
  2. init recovery key with password
  3. create user
  4. upload data
  5. change password of user
  6. lost old password user
  7. decrypt-all with revovery key

Expected behaviour

decrypt all

Actual behaviour

Could not decrypt private key, maybe you entered the wrong password?
Module "Default encryption module" does not support the functionality to decrypt all files again or the initialization of the module failed!
Server side encryption remains enabled

But no password is correct

Are you using external storage, if yes which one: local/cifs

Are you using encryption: yes

Are you using an external user-backend, if yes which one: ActiveDirectory

LDAP configuration (delete this part if not used)

With access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ ldap:show-config
from within your ownCloud installation folder

Without access to your command line download the data/owncloud.db to your local
computer or access your SQL server remotely and run the select query:
SELECT * FROM `oc_appconfig` WHERE `appid` = 'user_ldap';

Eventually replace sensitive data as the name/IP-address of your LDAP server or groups.

Client configuration

Browser: Chrome

Operating system: Windows 10

can you test if upgrading to 10.0.4 would solve your issue?

recently there were a similar case you might look in to:


when i try to install version 10.0.4 i have other problem

can you try this:

chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/owncloud

and try to upgrade again?
