Hello. After setting up a nextcloud account via the wizard and trying to backup the phone with the built-in tool the backup failed. The log file /tmp doesn't give me any hint what happened. The last line in the log file contains a simple [UI] Sync error: ,details:[ ]. Any idea what's wrong?

Regardless, something was wrong. After spending a bunch of time last night looking for the specific error, I tried broader strokes and someone suggested php occ scan (SP) - I didn't figure it would change much official website

Have you seen this posting ?

I had the same problem, but after following this advice from the above posting, the problem was solved:

Some features seem to work only if the nextcloud instance is located in the website's root directory. Be sure to access nextcloud at https://nextcloud.servername instead of https://servername/nextcloud. Creating a subdomain may be a solution.

when Setting up Nextcloud set Username, password, server address including /nextcloud/ directory, incl. trailing slash.

set dav directory to "/nextcloud/remote.php/dav/files/<User>/" instead of the default "/remote.php/webdav/" (replace <User> with your nextcloud Username)

XA2 4113 Battery life just near two days. Over nights battery drain 2 ...11% / 8 h with 2 G, mobile net off, dalvik off. Some testing with Nextcloud and Caldav, too. After these among others heavily battery drain.

I'm getting very fucked of everything. I ordered Sony Xperia 10 II with android for as daily phone. Xperia XA2 Sailfish X for the second phone, perhaps, I do not know exactly. Very disappointed on XA2 with SFOS X.
