Nginx configuration not working with owncloud 5? -- Simonsmiley (talk) 01:46, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

This nginx config didn't work out for me.
Here is my working nginx conf

For PHP 7.0.2 in ownCloud 8.0.x you may need to disable fastcgi_buffering - refer to

Self-signed certificate not accepted

The suggested fix for the webdav error-notice didn't work for me. However I found another fix [1] namely disable mod_curl in php.ini that did work.

Disabling curl also worked for me, thanks! This isn't an ideal solution however. Did you manage to find a proper fix? --Lonaowna (talk) 13:37, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

PHP open_basedir error on 32-bit install

On Owncloud 8.0.0-1, I had to comment out the php_admin_value open_basedir line order even to get to the owncloud wizard login page. It then gives the following error:

It seems that this ownCloud instance is running on a 32-bit PHP environment and the open_basedir has been configured in php.ini. This will lead to problems with files over 4GB and is highly discouraged. Please remove the open_basedir setting within your php.ini or switch to 64-bit PHP.

Keeping apps in /var/www/owncloud/apps doesn't work

At least with owncloud 8.0.2-1, the mentioned fix for write into apps directory does not work. It is possible to install apps, that are put in the /var/www/owncloud/apps folder, but they can't be used afterwards. They appear in the Apps menu, but the icon is broken and when you open the app, a blank/broken page appears (tested with the music and ownnote apps). --Theblackcrow1 (talk) 18:28, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

PS: I'm not the only one with this issue: [2] --Theblackcrow1 (talk) 18:39, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Yeah I had this problem as well. You need a way for it to load static files from there, e.g. for Nginx:
   location ~ /wapps/(.*)$ {
       alias /var/www/owncloud/apps/$1;
Please check if this works and is sufficient. It seems for me. Javex (talk) 12:18, 7 April 2015 (UTC)


Hi, the readability of the article is improvable. IMO, the chapters should starting answering the important questions in easy language:

1. Why do I want owncloud? 2. Why do I want nginx? Do I need it? 3. Why do I want Uwsgi? Do I need it? 4. Why are php-intl and php-mcrypt recommended? What are they for?
