Nextcloud Install


about 2 years ago I had installed Nextcloud. Due to my ignorance it could no longer be used meaningfully and it was deleted.
Now I wanted to reinstall NC and the installer still found parts of the old installation. The system drive I had formatted and Dietpi reinstalled. So there are no old files and folders here.
I had both then and now swapped out the user data.
Now I ask for help for a suitable reinstallation of Nextcloud-.


Can you share the error message please

Nextcloud not installed

nevertheless, there is the folder Nextcloud under " /var/www/ " , " /mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data " " /mnt/dietpi_userdata/nextcloud_data " and under " x:\dietpi_userdata\mysql\nextcloud\ " as well.

Existing Nextcloud Nginx configuration found, will preserve the old one and save the new one for │
│ review and comparison to: /etc/nginx/sites-dietpi/dietpi-nextcloud.conf.dietpi-new

Why is it that all data is not deleted during an uninstallation?

Nextcloud is a web server application that can’t be removed using apt. We keep some backup data during uninstall. If not need they can be removed manually. How does Nextcloud has been removed before?

previously nextcloud was removed with dietpi software.
Now I have deleted everything “by hand” and the installation succeeded.

I thank you for the quick answers.
