The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

It sounds like the webserver isn’t running. Did you install Apache? Make sure to start it (sudo systemctl start httpd.service) and enable it to automatically restart on reboot (sudo systemctl enable httpd.service) You might want to checkout this tutorial:

Have you set up any firewalling? If so, make sure that you open ports 80 and 443 for accessing OwnCloud over HTTP and HTTPS:

sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http
sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https

The tutorial “Additional Recommended Steps for New CentOS 7 Servers” covers this and more.
