Unable to move or delete files and folders in Nextcloud
When trying to move or delete files or folders an error appears from the web interface: ‘Could not move / delete “photo.jpg”. The same problem appears when using WebDAV.
This issue appears when files are being locked in the database and can be unlocked following the steps below.
- If needed put Nextcloud in maintenance mode, edit the config.php file:
'maintenance' => true,
- Access the Nextcloud database to empty the oc_file_locks, run the following command:
DELETE FROM oc_file_locks WHERE 1;
- Set back the maintenance mode to false.
Tested on Nextcloud v19.
