Links for shares changed from version 10.5.0-1 to 10.5.0-4 in centos 7

I would appreciate a solution for this.
There is no way to rollback to the previous working version because I can’t find it anymore in the repository.

Expected behaviour

Links created by previous versions should work

Actual behaviour

but get a 404 (not found)

Steps to reproduce

  1. updated owncloud server from owncloud repository
  2. format of share link was before: https://cloud.server.tld/s/HASH
  3. since the update the software creates and expects links in this format:

Server configuration

Operating system:
centos 7.8 2003

Web server:

PHP version:
ownCloud version:
Storage backend (external storage):

Client configuration

Client version:
any Webbrowser
Operating system:
OS language:
Qt version used by client package (Linux only, see also Settings dialog):
not relevant
Client package (From ownCloud or distro) (Linux only):
Installation path of client:


Please use Gist ( or a similar code paster for longer

Template for output < 10 lines

  1. Web server error log: 404 Errors

  2. Server logfile: ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log):
    no relevant errors


i think you can follow the instructions provided by the ownCloud people here to remove that “index.php” from the URL:

From what i know this “Development” category you have chosen should be used if you want to contribute to e.g. the ownCloud development or if you need help with writing an own app but your problem seems to be unrelated to such topics so i think the “Server” category could fit way better.

Maybe you could also create a new topic in and explain why you had chosen the “Development” category? I think this could help the ownCloud people to understand the reasoning behind this choice and maybe could also help to improve the forum so that users are easier able to chose the correct category.


thanks for the link. Hope it helps.
I don’t understand the Development of this software. The document describes a change from version 9.0.3 on. Why did owncloud accept the URLs until 10.5.0-2 and begins to reject them now after a minor update. There is nothing written about that in the change log.

Sorry for my misunderstanding of this category.
I only saw Desktop and Development without scrolling deeper. Maybe a different category list could make things more clear.
I’ve changed to Server category und for me the Topic is closed

this is quite strange and never happened for me.

Maybe something in the packaging code (i think updating from 10.5.0-1 to 10.5.0-4 isn’t doing an ownCloud update and only reflects a code change in the packaging) has triggered this behavior?

Thanks for providing the insights on the category topic, i have created Change order of available categories when creating a new topic? about that and hope that the ownCloud people are able to do something about this.
