owncloudAUR is available in the AUR.

  3. Add the following lines into /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
 Include /etc/httpd/conf/extra/owncloud.conf

 Include conf/extra/php5_module.conf

Uncomment extensions in /etc/php/php.ini

Depending on which database backend you are going to use uncomment either one of the following extensions in /etc/php/php.ini


now restart the apache server with:

and open http://localhost in your browser. You should now be able to create a user account and follow the installation wizard.
