I’ve seen the thread from 2018 on this question, but didn’t find it helpful. In advance: I am just a pure OwnCloud customer. I installed OwnCloud on our home server, and it mostly “just works”.
Mostly. When it stops working, it can be a server problem, or an internet problem, or - sometimes - I log into the web page, and it says it wants to install an update.
It would be enormously helpful if I could receive an email that an update must be installed.
If I look at the settings-page, under “General”, I have Updater set to “stable” and “Notify members” set to “admin”. The SMTP settings have been tested. Still, I have never received an update notification.
I must be missing something obvious. Can someone hit me with a cluebat?
p.s. I’m not thrilled that OwnCloud just shuts down when it wants an update. If triggering the update is so automatic - just a click - then maybe just install the update automatically?
Hi @Brad, welcome to the forum.
Are we talking about upgrades for the apps or for ownCloud itself?
Upgrades for the server itself.
I think, nobody forces you to update your server. Or do I miss something?
But I don’t know of any notification for new versions by email.
Sorry, perhaps my post was unclear, but: the server stops syncing when it wants updated. Visit the web-page, and it wants approval to update. Which I then give, of course, but this is a nuisance.
Moreover, the settings seem to indicate that an email should be sent, when an update is available.
I guess, this could be true, in case you loaded an update by your package manager. Or you configured your ownCloud to automatically update its apps. Both I’d never accept.
As I said in the post: Settings : General. There is a section that asks which group to send email to, in case of a pending update.
