I was forced to reinstall the latest Ubuntu but I managed to back up my ownCloud instance beforehand. This includes the config.php, the data directory, and the MySQL database. Previously, I was using 10.0.4.4 and now I’m using 10.0.9.5, installed from the Ubuntu package mentioned on the ownCloud homepage. I did run “occ upgrade”.
All seems fine except for one problem (so far). I am no longer able to connect to Samba shares that are on the same server. (i.e., the share is on the same server as ownCloud)
Of course, as this is a new reinstallation, there are many things that could have gone wrong that are not related to ownCloud. However, from another computer, I was able to mount the share (i.e., using the nautilus interface of Gnome). Thus, I think both the share’s configuration and the Samba user have been created correctly.
What happens now is, if I log into the web-based interface, the share is highlighted in red and a message at the top says, “Some of the configured external mount points are not connected. Pleae click on the red row(s) for more information”. When I click on one, it says, “External mount error. There was an error with message: Empty response from the server. Do you want to review mount point config in admin settings page?”
If I click “Yes”, then I can change the configuration but all seems correct…
I also tried to run “occ” as follows:
$ sudo -u www-data php occ files_external:verify 1
- status: error
- code: 1
…I don’t know what to do with this. On this web page, the app External Storage Support v0.5.2 is mentioned and I have not installed it. I am unable to find it in the Market Place. Am I missing something?
Can someone offer suggestions on what might be wrong or where I should go from here? Or even what log file(s) I should look into?
