Fresh install with Nextcloud failing to install

Hey! I was wondering if anyone has any advice for me on how to rectify this problem. This is a fresh install I downloaded the image dietpi v6.25 from the downloads page and used win32diskimager to image my SD card. Upon boot the only option I chose was Nextcloud from the optimized software page and clicked install and after a little while I received an error “Error while trying to create admin user: Failed to connect to the database: An exception occurred in driver: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1698] Access denied for user ‘oc_admin’@‘localhost’”. Is there something I am doing wrong or a step that I am missing? What do I have to do to rectify this?

Any advice is helpful!


Known issue on NextCloud 17.0.2 See link below

With the temp workaround provided, you can install previous version.

Hey thank you! I’ll give this a try.

Thanks so much! The workaround worked great!

Inside NextCloud you can try to update to latest version. This should work, as the issue is with new installations only.
