    while the author did a decent job describing the product and explaining the installation [thank you, btw] its worth noting that in spite of touting owncloud as, “ownCloud is a free, open-source and powerful web application for data synchronization, file sharing, and remote storage of files.” … its worth noting that the official product on android [and probably AAPL appstore] is NOT free. the author should have pointed this out up front. its true that the host is free … but without decent clients its value is … diluted.

    Thank you for this useful post.

    Can I install OwnCloud on Nginx?

    • Avishek Kumar says:

      Dear Yazir,
      To be true, I personally have no idea of installing it over Nginx. Why dont you install it and in case of any fix required our team will work to short it out with you.

  8. Avishek Kumar says:

    Do the below as root.

    # cd /var/www
    # ls -l

    check for any folder named owncloud. Notice foldername case. Remember linux is case sensitive. Point your browser to link/owncloud. Remember link/owncloud is not same as link/Owncloud.

    Best of Luck!

    I followed your instructions to the letter and when it comes to logging on in either localhost or via ip address I get 404 The requested URL /owncloud was not found on this server.

    And Apache/2.2.16 (Debian) Server at localhost Port 80.

    Owncloud is not running but I have no idea how to start the service.
