How to enable admin features of NextCloud when using Mail-In-A-Box

When you install Mail-In-A-Box and you access NextCloud for the first time as an administrator you may find that the “Apps” menu link is missing. You won’t be able to install additional apps for NextCloud. To enable the app feature is a simple process. Please follow the following steps.

  1. Login to your Mail-In-A-Box server
  2. Enter the following line
    1. sudo ./mailinabox/tools/owncloud-unlockadmin.sh your@emailaddress.com

That’s it! Now log back into NextCloud and the “App” Menu item should now be there.
