Nginx conf

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)

First steps/Database support

On LAMP page says deprecated. Its for use

not sure/havenoidea what im doing =)

Hi! You're absolutely right about being deprecated. I removed it a while ago but then realized that is not supported by ownCloud.[2][3]
I'll add a note about it though, as it confused me as well. :) --Lonaowna (talk) 07:16, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
Just a question though: do we have to enable both extensions, or just using could work? I'm having so much headache setting up ownCloud with nginx... A dedicated LEMP/ownCloud wiki page could be of some help! I'm keeping my installation notes in Markdown, if I ever succeed to have ownCloud run I'll upload it to the wiki. If anybody is interested in contributing his/her working config files (nginx.conf server block, /etc/php/php.ini modifications etc...), let me know. Neitsab (talk) 17:58, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Only will not work (I've just tested it). Only seems to work though. Lonaowna (talk) 07:37, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, that clears it up. I'll still enable both and though, hoping ownCloud will rely as much as possible on the pdo one :-) Neitsab (talk) 11:19, 4 August 2014 (UTC) was dropped upstream and official documentation lists as database connector, so I'm marking this section for deletion.

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: [4] --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)

Warning "/dev/urandom" without OwnCloud vhost open_basedir permission


Under "Security & setup warnings" in admin configurations appears a warning "/dev/urandom is not readable by PHP which is highly discouraged for security reasons.", if you don't include /dev/urandom in /etc/httpd/conf/extra/owncloud.conf under php_admin_value open_basedir. Just editing php.ini is not enough to purge the warning.

I could reproduce the behaviour. —This unsigned comment is by Kleinsignal in FDur (talk) 2015-08-02T17:10‎Z. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Starting with PHP 7.0, open_basedir is no longer set by default, provided apache.example.conf was updated to allow urandom and uWSGI example already sets it right. Problem solved, marking for deletion! Neitsab (talk) 00:13, 1 February 2016 (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?

Server waits forever after creating admin account

The momentary text about that is: “If the server waits forever but the database is working, try installing all of the apps available in the ArchLinux repos. If you don't have any apps installed, it can cause issues.”

All “apps in the ArchLinux repos”? What should this be? Seems very unclear.

OK, deleted as nobody disagreed. --Bazon (talk) 05:29, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Well done, applies to [5] for reference. Closing. --Indigo (talk) 09:10, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Seeing white page after login

Momentary, there are 3 strategies to solve that (by disabling non working extension) explained:

1. with phpMyAdmin

2. with mysql

3. with OwnCloud's own tool occ.

I added the third option and for my, it seems easiest. Downsides of the others: 1. install and configure phpMyAdmin, 2. you have to know the exact name of the nonworking extension. So I think, the occ possibility should be mentioned first and maybe even the others deleted. But as I added and used option 3, I'm not sure whether I'm objective on that and so I ask here: What do you think? Bazon (talk) 19:45, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

OK, changed order as nobody disagreed. --Bazon (talk) 05:30, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
