Change the Disroot user password

First you need to log in to the Self Service Center at and choose to change password.

Once you changed your password in the Self Service Center you will need to make sure to change your encryption key in Nextcloud, since all your files in Nextcloud are encrypted with a key that is generated from your password.

  1. Go to and log in with your new password. You will see a yellow message on top of the page:
    Invalid private key for Encryption App. Please update your private key password in your personal settings to recover access to your encrypted files.
  2. Click on your name in the top right corner and select Personal from the menu.
  3. Scroll down to Nextcloud basic encryption module and type in your old password and your new password and click Update Private Key Password.
  4. Log out of Nextcloud and log back in and that's it, you're all set and can view your file again.
If you lose your password, you won't be able to retrieve your files on the cloud as they're encrypted, so even the server administrators can't see their content.
