nginx error MKCOL 403 when uploading some files

Julian H 4 weeks ago updated by register.filerun.obelix 2 weeks ago 3

Hey, i have filerun setup and running for 2 weeks now. For another account, the nextcloud windows client works perfectly, but now i am trying to use it for my own account and for some files i keep getting "mkcol 403 forbidden" errors, which i can see in the logs of my nginx in front of filerun aswell.

I have no idea, why i have those problems now, and the other account not.

Would be great, if anyone can help me out here.

Perhaps there is something in the name of the folder that the sync app is trying to create via the upload. Pressing F12 in the Nextcloud settings page will open the app's log. Perhaps there is some information in there we could use for troubleshooting this for you.


I am facing the same error message when synchronizing with Nextcloud client. Any idea, what is causingthis issue?


I just notice while checking with a smaller set of files that the error seems to be linked to file size. Most (did not check the whole list) file exceed 10MB. I also found a 3-years old thread that 10MB was a limit with nextcloud client. A fix was promissed. Maybe it is a regression?
