    For Debian 8 (jessie):
    1. AllowOverride directive is in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, in section
    2. owncloud install from
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/isv:/ownCloud:/community/Debian_8.0/ repository
    writes directory under /var/www/owncloud, enables mod_rewrite enabled by default, all permissions correct

  6. John says:

    Under Ubuntu 14.04 which uses Apache2.4 the default path is: /var/www/html.
    For Site-Available the default is 000-default.conf
    For all your sites they have to have the extension .conf.
    Look forward in trying out your instructions.
    Question. What plug in are you using for this Comment form, I need something like this? Thanks in advance.

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Thanks for the tip, hope it will help others, I use default WordPress comment form..

      • John says:

        I don’t think that actually matters as WordPress defaults have also changed along with Apache2, the instruction say “On Debian/Ubuntu/Linux Mint” which is what brought me here. The instruction “as is” would not work on a Ubuntu/Linux Mint system 14.04 installation or greater. I would think Debian has changed also.
        nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/default does not exist.
        There, find “AllowOverride None” and change this to “AllowOverride All” as shown. Does not exist in the new 000-default.conf file.
        So a user would have to know these things and make the adjustments to make it work. No good for newbies.
        Image or cut and paste examples of the configuration files you are editing would help people.

        • John says:

          To follow-up – “AllowOverride All” is not allowed in 000-default.conf.
          AllowOverride not allowed here
          Action ‘configtest’ failed.
          The Apache error log may have more information.

          Just saying.

    Hello Ravi, is there an easy method to remotely access ownCloud or must it only be used in a local network?

    • Ravi Saive says:


      You can access your own Owncloud platform through IP or domain name from any remote location, as far as you opened access to particular location via firewall..

  8. Masoom Rahi says:
