Hi,

My Nextcloud instance broke a couple of days ago and could’nt get it running again on the original config, to recover my contacts I looked in the database and I find the raw vcard data (which is the common sharing format of contacts) in the database.

With this code in python you can restore the files for you to import them to any addressbook like Google, Outlook or iCloud, or back into a Nextcloud.

please note that you need to search for your addressbook Id via SQL before. You could use adminer or a graphical SQL-client.

Hi i tried to publish the syncthing WebGUIs from my DMZ systems to my internaly accessible haproxy VIP on my pfSense firewall and couldn’t figure out WHY I can’t connect to the service, it seems to have error “503 Server not found” until I choose to use the default backend.

I was stuck for half an hour, this moment as I write this blog entry. I figured out:

HAProxy refers to the first match of the acl per IP in the frontends, NOT WITH THE PORTs in mind. I had to use a different ACL check that matches only this frontend I wanted.
