LOFT-Q Owncloud Guide¶
ownCloud is a free and open source choice for personal cloud storage, created by KDE developer Frank Karlitschek in 2010, which is developed for replacing commercial cloud service. Owncloud is free for usage, but if you want to build your own cloud, some basic tools, service and basic configurations is needed.
LOFT-Q provides two Linux releases, Debian and OpenSUSE, and we can build our own cloud server based on them, more info please referr to owncloud 8.0 。
Owncloud for Debian¶
The Debian for LOFT-Q is based on SID reversion. please install and configure owncloud as below operation:
sudo apt-get install owncloud
Owncloud for openSUSE¶

Mariadb startup and configuration
After installation, please set root password for Maria database as tips below:
Message from package mariadb: You just installed MySQL server for the first time. You can start it using: rcmysql start During first start empty database will be created for your automatically. PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MariaDB root USER ! To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands: '/usr/bin/mysqladmin' -u root password 'new-password' '/usr/bin/mysqladmin' -u root -h misibook password 'new-password' Alternatively you can run: '/usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation' which will also give you the option of removing the test databases and anonymous user created by default. This is strongly recommended for production servers.
root password setup
mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password' mysqladmin -u root -h misibook password 'new-password' **'new-password'** is the root password we should set.
Apache2 startup and configuration
As for openSUSE，it will install the 2.4 version of Apache2.
As for this version, authz_default has been removed，and its freature is partly replaced and updated by authz_core. so we will have to replace authz_default with authz_core in /etc/sysconfig/apache2.
So, Finally the default modules loaded in /etc/sysconfig/apache2 is:
APACHE_MODULES="php5 actions alias auth_basic authn_file authz_host authz_groupffile authz_user authz_core autoindex cgi dir env expires include log_config mime negotiation setenvif ssl socache_shmcb userdir reqtimeout"
After configuration modified, we need to startup Apache2：
owncloud first start
After all the configuration finished, we just enter http://192.168.1.102/owncloud in browser, and feel free to enter our own world of cloud.
is the url for owncloud, please enter this according to your own ip configuration.
