Task app 0.5 on owncloud 7.0.4

I am stuck running owncloud server 7.0.4 and just installed tasks 0.5 which I believe is compatible with this older server version. However, I do not see any of the many tasks I have in my task lists - the lists are all empty. Existing tasks display fine in Thunderbird and also in my Android OpenTasks app.

What should I investigate?

Server configuration

Operating system:

Web server:


PHP version:

ownCloud version: (see ownCloud admin page)

Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install:

Where did you install ownCloud from:

Signing status (ownCloud 9.0 and above):

Login as admin user into your ownCloud and access 
paste the results into https://gist.github.com/ and puth the link here.

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:

Insert your webserver log here

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

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


maybe there are some issues with that hugely outdated version of ownCloud together with the same hugely outdated version of tasks?

Remember that ownCloud 7.0.4 was released nearly 5 years ago (Dec 8, 2014), similar with the tasks app (Nov 10, 2014).

I think there might be too many known and possible already fixed bugs/issues in such outdated/old versions.

Nevertheless, if he cannot upgrade for some unknown reasons, he can try to get it running. He also created an issue ab github:

sure it might be possible to try it out.

But what if the task app 0.5 doesn’t work with ownCloud 7.0.4 at all (e.g. there was a bug in 7.0.4 or similar) and requires a newer version like 7.0.15? The appinfo.xml of version 0.5 only states that at least 6.0.0 is required.

I think version 0.6 of the task app is also not an alternative because this app version seems to require ownCloud 8.0. :slightly_frowning_face:

“Works with oc8” points to a possibility. However, it’s not my time that goes by with such experiments.

that’s true. I think it will be also quite hard to find some one having the experience with nearly 5 year old versions / code. :slightly_frowning_face:
