At first I set up subdomain the
ownlcoud.notmydomain.com and set the path to /my/dummy/path/owncloud in the domainfactory dash board. I SSHed to the server of domainfactory, downloaded and installed ownCloud’s files:
$ cd /my/dummy/path/ $ wget http://download.owncloud.org/community/owncloud-6.0.2.tar.bz2 $ tar xfj owncloud-6.0.2.tar.bz2
This generated the folder
owncloud which contains all the required files in the configured location.
When I opend
ownlcoud.notmydomain.com in a webbrowser I got the following error:
Warning: Unexpected character in input: '\' (ASCII=92) state=1 in /my/dummy/path/owncloud/index.php on line 33 Warning: Unexpected character in input: '\' (ASCII=92) state=1 in /my/dummy/path/owncloud/index.php on line 33 Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /my/dummy/path/owncloud/index.php on line 33
I figured out that this can be fixed by using a newer PHP version so I switched from 5.2.17 to 5.4.9 using the dash board of my domainfactory account. When I visited the subdomain in the webbrowser the following welcome screen was presented:
By clicking “Advanced” the database options are shown and can be configured.
Per default sqlite is used but I wanted to use MySQL.
I entered the details.
And clicked “Finish setup”. This the dash board of my ownCloud instance showed that there are some folders and files had been parked for me already.
I clicked the plus at the bottom left and activated the Encryption app for server-side file encryption. To initiate the key I had to logout and login again.
Additionally if I went to the settings and activated forcing of SSL-encrypted login.
When uploading the first files I saw that the upload limit was 8Mb. To change this the values
post_max_size in the
php.ini had to be adapted. This can be done via the domainfactory dash board. And voilà, here is the dropbox/google drive/$YourNSAaccessibleCloudStorage replacement!
