Desktop client

Method for pros

One of our customers used this method and was nice enough to share it with everyone. We at Hetzner are not liable for any damage or data loss that may occur as a result of this method.

You can configure the domain directly in the corresponding configuration of the desktop client.

  1. First, close the sync client.

  2. Change the instance's address in the sync client's configuration file:

Linux:  ~/.local/share/data/Nextcloud/nextcloud.cfg
Windows: %APPDATA%\Local\Nextcloud\nextcloud.cfg
* Paths may vary depending on the operating system and type of installation you're using.
  1. Restart the sync client.

Standard method

If the above method is a bit too tricky for you, you can also change the domain directly via the sync client in this more conventional way:

  1. Synchronize your existing directories to prevent data loss.

  2. Log out from your user account. To do this, go to Account and click on Remove.
