Question

How come I am unable to install Owncloud Apps on a pre-installed owncloud droplet?

Hi, I have spun up a preconfigured owncloud droplet. Things were working great, I followed the digital ocean guidelines to secure the installation and get it up and running. My users are able to connect and the owncloud client works fine.

I tried to install an App from the Owncloud “Productivity” section and it fails. Actually, any new app that I try to install fails. Here is a part of the admin log –

Aside from some web crawlers trying to look for wordpress, here are the relevant apache logs:

I have not been able to install any Apps through Owncloud, although enabled the Calendar app just fine.

I’m not able to reproduce this issue. Judging from this ownCloud bug report, it looks like this was a problem introduced in 8.0.4 but resolved in the meantime.
