I've had this happen a couple more times now. I've ordered some more SD cards, so far gone through about 8 SD cards. So far I have linked this problem this to one of the following:
1) NextCloud
2) Fail2Ban
3) CertBot
4) Lets Encrypt.

It worked fine for weeks running a web server, Wiring Pi, Open Hab etc. I install the above and it breaks after one week.

I'm trying again now but this time going to try OwnCloud to see if I have more luck.

Keith.

Hi Keith,

Very strange.

Probably nothing, but it might be worth increasing the swapfile size, just incase any of those program has a reoccurring memory leak. Can be done in
  • dietpi-config > Advanced Options > Swapfile (try max size)
Then see if it runs stable for a longer period. You can also use htop to check for current resource usage.

Failing that:
It could be possible your SBC has a hardware failure, although, I wouldn't come to that conclusion until you are able to test with the following to exclude SD/PSU:
  • Sandisk Ultra/Extreme (I personally use Sandisk only, had issues with other brands over the years and especially the cheap `China-town ones`)
  • Offical RPi PSU

Fingers crossed, all seems to be working now. I've reverted back to ownCloud rather than NextCloud though.
