Download cycle a several clients

Running ownCloud Server 10.0.0 (stable) on Linux (Debian jessie).

I uploaded a ZIP file (609MB) last week.

Switched to a different desktop machine, running Debian Stretch, and noticed that above mentioned ZIP is downloaded again and again.

Going back to original desktop machine, the behaviour wasn't seen.

Todady I started my Windows (desktop) machine, and noticed that all files were synced, as expected.

After the complete sync, the above mentioned ZIP is downloaded here again and again too.

The Synchronisationsprotokoll doesn't have any message regarding this file or behaviour, as the client deletes the relevant entry as soon as the next sync of this file starts.

For a short moment I saw the notice, that the "checksum doesn't match and the download is resumed". But not sure, if I remember correctly.

I already did at server site: occ files:scan --all

Any ideas regarding this issue?

Please update to the newest 10.0 and client version. If the issue continues, please file a bug in the github repo as this needs deeper analysis. Maybe test with a smaller zip file.

  • Client versions were latest: 2.3.2
    and GUI also says that there are no updates avail, so assuming it's the latest version.

  • Server is version 10.0.0
    and update via "apt update" doesn't do anything, so assuming it's latest version installed either.

But nevertheless, dug deeper into it.

The ZIP file on server has 4.6GB size in reality: 4.6GB - 4GB = 609 MB.

This explains why the client always wants to synchronize the 609MB.
Wasn't aware this morning that the file was >4GB. Sorry for missing information.

But why could I upload a 4.6GB file, and have issues when downloading?

So I tested, if the bananian OS (Debian jessie) can handle the file.

  • "7z" can handle the file:
    7z t /var/www/owncloud/data/klaus/files/.../.ZIP
    Everything is Ok
Folders: 59
Files: 320
Size:       4959846705
Compressed: 4933208013
  • Then calculated the md5sum ...
    and are equal on both machines either!

So it's not a bug in the OS, nor a limitation of the hardware.

/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini contains:
post_max_size = 20GB
upload_max_filesize = 20GB
max_execution_time = 3600
max_input_time = 3600

/var/www/owncloud/.htaccess all commented out:
# php_value upload_max_filesize 513M
# php_value post_max_size 513M
# php_value memory_limit 512M

  • Finally checked the administrative webinterface for File Handling.
    The maximum file size is set to "20GB" either.

No idea what's going wrong here. The server can handle it, the clients loop on download.

I think you still should update to 10.0.2 first before searching for any issues.

Thank you for suggestion.

But 10.0.2 is not avail as a stable version for debian, it's only a testing version:

10.0.2 is avail here (note the "/testing/" in path)

I'm installing and updating only from here (note the "/stable/" instead):

This installation way is suggested here:

As you already have updated to 10.0 you currently need to use:

until the 10.x releases are hitting the "stable" repository.
