NextCloud, "the flexible open source file synchronization and sharing solution", provides build-in updater.
Thankfully, we can update/upgrade the software with its own updater.
Updated on 2020-02-10
Updating 18.0.14 -> 19.0.8 and 19.0.8 -> 20.0.7 were successful with the web updater instead of command line interface on OpenBSD 6.8 with PHP 7.4. It's more convenient : )
This is how to carry it out via command line after installing NextCloud on OpenBSD:
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/php-7.3 /usr/local/bin/php $ cd <nextcloud-dir> $ # apply for env without `chroot` to "datadirectory" # nvim config/config.php $ # `occ upgrade` in updater.phar requires `php` executable $ doas -u <nextcloud-user> php updater/updater.phar $ # Continue update? -> y $ # Should the "occ upgrade" command be executed? -> y $ # Keep maintenance mode active? -> y $ # or: $ #doas -u <nextcloud-user> php-7.3 occ maintenance:mode --off $ # apply for env with `chroot` to "datadirectory" $ doas nvim config/config.php # rm /usr/local/bin/php
Tutorial (Step-by-step description)
Move to the NextCloud directory:
$ cd <nextcloud-dir>
# nvim config/config.php
Here, set "datadirectory" as it is without
- 'datadirectory' => '/<web-dir>/nextcloud/data', + 'datadirectory' => '/var/www/<web-dir>/nextcloud/data',
php executable for
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/php-7.3 /usr/local/bin/php
Let's run updater:
$ doas -u <nextcloud-user> php updater/updater.phar
The updating process will start like this:
Nextcloud Updater - version: v16.0.3-3-ga0c2b25 dirty Current version is 16.0.6. Update to Nextcloud 17.0.1 available.

Info: Gracefully stopping the updater via Ctrl-C is not possible - PCNTL extension is not loaded.

The process control (PCNTL) extensions are required in case you want to interrupt long running commands - see http://php.net/manual/en/book.pcntl.php Nextcloud or one of the apps require upgrade - only a limited number of commands are available You may use your browser or the occ upgrade command to do the upgrade 2019-11-20T12:55:00+00:00 Set log level to debug 2019-11-20T12:55:00+00:00 Repair step: Repair MySQL collation ... 2019-11-20T12:56:37+00:00 Update successful 2019-11-20T12:56:37+00:00 Maintenance mode is kept active 2019-11-20T12:56:37+00:00 Reset log level Keep maintenance mode active? [y/N] y
Maintenance mode is still necessary because we have an invalid
chroot is deactivated.
The process control (PCNTL) extensions are required in case you want to interrupt long running commands - see http://php.net/manual/en/book.pcntl.php ...
The update is successful.
Let's clean up and restart the service.
Remove the temporary executable:
# rm /usr/local/bin/php
Stop maintenance mode:
$ doas -u <nextcloud-user> php-7.3 occ maintenance:mode --off
Finally, restore "datadirectory" in
config.php to be under
# nvim config/config.php
- 'datadirectory' => '/etc/www/<web-dir>/nextcloud/data', + 'datadirectory' => '/<web-dir>/nextcloud/data',
