Owncloud on wordpress droplet

November 16, 2014 1.5k views


i am using a wordpress droplet and i wanted to install owncloud on the server. I used the apt-get install owncloud and run the installation via browser. The problem is, that after the installation i got following error:

Your web server is not yet properly setup to allow files synchronization because the WebDAV interface seems to be broken.
Please double check the installation guides.

Do you have some tips where i should adopt my apache conf or rights?

The WordPress one-click image provides some extra security by locking down a number of features not needed by WordPress. We'll need to edit the Apache configuration for OwnCloud in order to allow the WebDAV interface.

Open the configuration with:

nano /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/owncloud.conf

and add the following inside of the Directory block:

    <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
        Allow from all

Then restart Apache with:

sudo service apache2 restart

You should now be all set to go!
