ownCloud

ownCloud was removed from Debian

ownCloud was removed from Debian, so it is not available in the FreedomBox any more. Existing installations however are still working for time being. We are working on finding an adequate alternative.

Migrate to the official owncloud repository can be done in following this post

What is ownCloud?

ownCloud is a self-hosted file sync and share server. It provides access to your data through a platform to view, sync and share across devices. Calendars and Contacts feature will help you keeping google at a nice distance. ownCloud's functionalities are native or available via plugins (Collaborative Editing, Play Music, Watch Movies, Store Passwords, Dashboard, Mozilla Sync...) via https://apps.owncloud.com/

Installation

Clicking on the ownCloud application in Plinth will show an installation prompt. Proceed to install. After the installation, visit the /owncloud link provided in the ownCloud page. First time installation wizard will show up asking for administrator username and password to setup (no additional details such as database configuration are requested). After providing the details, you will be logged. You will be able to start using the ownCloud and create more users.

External Storage

ownCloud's external storage plugin allows you to expose the contents of a hard drive or those of an online storage account as a folder. Following are the steps required to setup such storage.

  1. Mount your hard drive or external storage to any fixed directory on the system.
  2. Install two packages needed via the 'apt-get' on the SSH command line shell (this step will not be needed in future):
    • $ sudo apt-get install php-google-api-php-client php-dropbox  
  3. Goto ownCloud Apps section and enable 'External Storage Support' plugin.
  4. Goto 'Admin' section and add your hard drive mount path in the external storage section. This folder will now show up in your folders list to access and sync across devices.
