I think better than a bunch of timers for each interval, a #comment at the top saying how to override w/ systemd's built in mechanisms would be better. That way you just have one .timer, but people can use any schedule they want.

@benjaminabel Thanks for your suggestions! I added an appropriate service. It works on my server, but let me know, if you have problems!

I was also wondering if we could make the periods more flexible. One could provide various timer files (daily, weekly, monthly), and the user can then activate the one he/she wants. What do you think? Is there an easier way to achieve such flexibility?

Cheers, Dominik.

Hi, and thanks for this handy package.

Maybe it would be nice to add a app updater timer for this command:

/usr/bin/runuser -u http -- /usr/bin/php /usr/share/webapps/nextcloud/occ app:update --all

Every day?

thanks! I changed the timer to be activated every 5 min. Let me know, if there are any other issues.

The recommended interval now seems to be 5 minutes (Nextcloud 17). If you take a look at the "Basic settings" as an administrator, it tells you to "Use system cron service to call the cron.php file every 5 minutes."

Thanks! :)

@fryfrog this is correct. Sorry for the confusion. The packages coexisted for a while, but I only maintained this one.

I have updated the Nextcloud Arch Wiki entry so that it links to this package, and I have also implemented your suggestions. Thank you very much! Please let me know, if you have further comments!

Does this package replace nextcloud-systemd-cron, which just disappeared?

And would /usr/lib/systemd/system be a more appropriate place? I think /etc/systemd is for user stuff?

Wouldn't be crazy to use sha256 instead of md5 too. :)
