Nextcloud - calendar sync not possible

Hi everyone,

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online, 8GB RAM, 4 Corem, 200GB SD
YunoHost version: 11.1 (current)
I have access to my server : Through SSH + through the webadmin |
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

If your request is related to an app, specify its name and version: Nextcloud , current

Description of my issue

  • trying to sync nextcloud calendar to my phone (xperia 10, sailfish os)
  • nextcloud is installed at subdomain →
  • Phone already syncs to another nextcloud instance (only difference - it doesnt use a subdomain but, no problem there. Same scheme, just with yunohost data gives error message (translated):
    Account could not be created.
    Serverresponse could not be executed/resolved,

I tried several times and cant find what i am doing wrong.

Used Data:
User: yunohostusername
Password: yunohostpassword
calendar path: /remote.php/dav/calendars/yunohostusername

other settings:
SSL-Errors ignored
Sync contacts disabled (for now)

As i am quite new to yunohost (installed about 1 month ago first time, never used vps before) I dont know where to start searching for the reason of the error.

Maybe someone here has an idea what is wrong.
Any hint is much appreciated.

Double check your url by going to the nextcloud web interface and editing an existing calendar. You can then copy the URL, remove the calendar name, and that will be the correct link for syncing all your calendars.

Also, do you have Nextcloud api and Nextcloud permissions active for visitors?

thx for your answer.
Yes - i checked the url several times. Also via the link to copy calendar url when you edit it.
I also tried if adding + removing backslash (/) at the end of url makes a difference.

About Nextcloud api and permissions. I am not really sure what you mean and when i seach for those terms the result dont really ring a bell for me - sorry.
I “simply” installed nextcloud on yunohost - and did no other settings. So just mouse-click install - nothing else.

About the Nextcloud permission, in your Yunohost server web admin, go to Users > Manage Groups and permissions.

You have a section Visitors. Check if Nextcloud and Nextcloud (api) are inside this group.



That was it - thx a lot.
Nextcloud api was already added for visitors - but nextcloud wasnt.
So i ll try to remember: external client access = visitor permission needed.
Sorry for the dumb question - if i would have clicked on those settings it describes exactlyt the problem i faced in the footnote… :see_no_evil:

Much appreciated.

Just in case (and for search engines) someone else runs into the problem:
The settings described in this post make it possible to connect a sailfish os / Jolla mobile phone with a yunohost nextcloud installation and sync contacts and calendar.
