Nextcloud Docker Webfinger and Node info Issue

1. The problem I’m having:

Hi everyone, hope all is well. I ran into an issue in Nextcloud. In my admin overview I only have these two issues.

  • Your web server is not properly set up to resolve “/.well-known/webfinger”.
  • Your web server is not properly set up to resolve “/.well-known/nodeinfo”.

It happened when I was added new configs for the forbidden everything was perfect. Then i saw a new redir webfinger from the link below thought i needed it. I added it in and it triggered the error. I tried everything from restoring from proxmox backup, removing the webfinger config in caddy, adding rewrites in the /var/www/html/.htcaccess no dice.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteRule ^/\.well-known/carddav /nextcloud/remote.php/dav [R=301,L]
   RewriteRule ^/\.well-known/caldav /nextcloud/remote.php/dav [R=301,L]
   RewriteRule ^/\.well-known/webfinger /nextcloud/index.php/.well-known/webfinger [R=301,L]
   RewriteRule ^/\.well-known/nodeinfo /nextcloud/index.php/.well-known/nodeinfo [R=301,L]

3. Caddy version: 2.7.6

4. How I installed and ran Caddy: Docker/Portainer

a. Compose file:

version: "3.8"
    image: caddy:latest
    container_name: caddy
    restart: unless-stopped
      - 80:80
      - 443:443
      - 443:443/udp
      - /home/ubuntu/docker/caddy/Caddyfile:/etc/caddy/Caddyfile
      - /home/ubuntu/docker/caddy/site:/srv
      - /home/ubuntu/docker/caddy/caddy_data:/data
      - /home/ubuntu/docker/caddy/caddy_config:/config

      - com.centurylinklabs.watchtower.monitor-only=true
      - dmz

    external: true

b. My complete Caddy config: { 
     root    * /var/www/html
     encode zstd gzip

    redir /.well-known/carddav /remote.php/dav/ 301
    redir /.well-known/caldav /remote.php/dav/ 301
    redir /.well-known/webfinger /public.php?service=webfinger 301

     php_fastcgi  {
     header {
         # disable FLoC tracking
         Permissions-Policy interest-cohort=()

         # enable HSTS
         Strict-Transport-Security max-age=31536000;

        # keep referrer data off of HTTP connections
         Referrer-Policy no-referrer-when-downgrade
             # .htaccess / data / config / ... shouldn't be accessible from outside
     @forbidden {
                path    /.htaccess
                path    /data/*
                path    /config/*
                path    /db_structure
                path    /.xml
                path    /README
                path    /3rdparty/*
                path    /lib/*
                path    /templates/*
                path    /occ
                path    /console.php
        handle @forbidden {
                respond 404

I added those configs, I restarted caddy container (like i always do) but this time i also restarted the Nextcloud compose stack as well and it worked thank you so much.
