Nextcloud Unresolved Conflicts

For those who've run into this (or will run into this) I found a solution to the an alert I was getting in my Nextcloud: https://help.nextcloud.com/t/new-version-client-there-are-unresolved-conflicts/41354

In unix that'd be something like

find $NEXTCLOUD_PATH -iname "_conflict*" 

From there, find the files you want to keep, resolve, merge, or whatever it is to get rid of them.

The way I triggered this was by having my mobile client trigger a bookmarks sync up to the server the same time a desktop client was updating stuff. I was lucky enough to just blow away the conflicts.

Finding this was particularly annoying because the error in the client gives the message “click for more details” which does nothing when clicked.
