Strange behaviour with 10.4.1

Steps to reproduce

  1. no idea

Expected behaviour

When I klick on a directory in the files view I expect to get into the directory and see the files there.

Actual behaviour

When I klick on a directory the directory icon gets checked. When I klick again it gets unchecked. I cannot access any directory. Not even with double klick.
I rebooted the server but the behaviour stays.

Server configuration

Operating system:

Web server:


PHP version:

ownCloud version: (see ownCloud admin page)
Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install:
10.4.0 using the internal updater
Where did you install ownCloud from:
bitnami vmware current version
Signing status (ownCloud 9.0 and above):

Login as admin user into your ownCloud and access 
paste the results into and puth the link here.

No errors have been found.

The content of config/config.php:

Log in to the web-UI with an administrator account and click on
'admin' -> 'Generate Config Report' -> 'Download ownCloud config report'
This report includes the config.php settings, the list of activated apps
and other details in a well sanitized form.


If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ config:list system
from within your ownCloud installation folder

*ATTENTION:* Do not post your config.php file in public as is. Please use one of the above
methods whenever possible. Both, the generated reports from the web-ui and from occ config:list
consistently remove sensitive data. You still may want to review the report before sending.
If done manually then it is critical for your own privacy to dilligently
remove *all* host names, passwords, usernames, salts and other credentials before posting.
You should assume that attackers find such information and will use them against your systems.

List of activated apps:

If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ app:list
from within your ownCloud installation folder.

Are you using external storage, if yes which one: local/smb/sftp/…
Are you using encryption: yes/no
Are you using an external user-backend, if yes which one: LDAP/ActiveDirectory/Webdav/…

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

Operating system:


Web server error log

Insert your webserver log here

ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log)

Insert your ownCloud log here

Browser log

Insert your browser log here, this could for example include:

a) The javascript console log
b) The network log 
c) ...

Please, fill the issue template to get better help. It is hard to predict problem without seeing logs.

if you click on the area

  1. red: you can toggle the selection
  2. green: go into the folder / open file
  3. blue: select file/folder to show extended information in right sidebar

so i think it is designed behavior -
maybe not intuitive enough… :wink:

Thank you ! I am coming from 7.10 and there you had to klick on the folder.
I even read the UI documentation but this was not mentioned there. Ok problem solved.
