Nextcloud Caddy

(Jan Schröder) #1


I want to run nextcloud with caddy.
But I get the following errors:

[INFO] - No such site at :80 (Remote:, Referer: )
 [INFO] Scanning for stale OCSP staples
[INFO] Done checking OCSP staples
 http: TLS handshake error from tls: no certificates configured

What I have to do now?

Best Regards

Hi @Level_3_Mage, welcome to the Caddy community.

Are these errors stopping you from browsing to your site?

I got a 404 from caddy and it seems I have an certificate but when I call my website with “/nextcloud” I get an 500 error.

Hmm. Can you share your Caddyfile?

Does the URL in your browser’s address bar exactly match the site label in your Caddyfile?

Yes it match.

If that’s your entire Caddyfile, then:

  1. The 404s are generated because Caddy has no site definition for - it only has a definition for, and;

  2. I’d wager that the 500s are linked to the fact that you’re putting Nextcloud in a subfolder. I believe you can configure an overwrite of the web root, but you’d need to look at the Nextcloud documentation. You might not need to fiddle with the rewrites, but I’m not 100% sure.

My strong suggestion is to drop the path from the site label (i.e. -> and see if that solves the 500 series errors (I fully expect it to solve the 404s). If it does, you’ll know that the obstacle is figuring out how to get Nextcloud to play nicely under the subfolder.

I changed it from to on Caddyfile but that changed nothing.
So I changed it back and after delete the php7.0-fpm that the server only can use the 7.2 version I’m now getting a BadGateway. The Errorlog says [ERROR 502 /] dial tcp connect: connection refused.

(Matthew Fay) #8

So after changing the site label and reloading Caddy, you were still getting 404s when loading the main page?

As for the error log, it’s possible the new version of PHP doesn’t have FPM listening on port 9000.

(Jan Schröder) #9

After changing it to the main page and changing it back I get a 421 error.

And now I have to change the version of PHP that PHP can listen to Port 9000?

I’ve done it!

I had more than one PHP version so I deleted everything except the version I needed (PHP7.2) than I reinstalled php7.2-fpm and changed in the www.conf file to listen=

Just write that if anyone else have the same issue. This may helps!
