Hard drive died in my server, the system drive not the OS and was too dead to clone to new drive. Ubuntu server 20.04 installer, was just garbage, so I took the opportunity to migrate back to vanilla Debian. Only real hiccup was Nextcloud. Between PHP and MySQL/MariaDB version change nuance it ended up being easier to do a clean install then reimport my file.


The new Nextcloud install is actually running much better, so I guess it ended up being a good thing. I think that install was originally and ownCloud install that I migrated to Nextcloud when the fork happened and upgraded since then. Must have been a lot of cruft in there. Also too the opportunity to switch back from OnlyOffice back to Collabora Online. So much better. It actually opens my documents correctly and isn't as slow.
