Question

Owncloud shows IP Address instead of domain

I have a Ubuntu droplet with owncloud on it, I got a domain name from Gandi, set everything up according to the tutorials here (DNS, records). I can access my server using the domain name but when I do it, it redirects to the IP address. How can I fix that?

I am looking at my owncloud install under /config/config.php and there is a part with the domain:

'trusted_domains' => 
  array (
    0 => 'cloud.mydomain.com',
  ),

You might try adding your domain to that array, or if that section does not exist, add it

In order to use your own domain with the site, you will need to update your Apache configuration. Edit both /etc/apache2/sites-available/owncloud-ssl.conf and /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-owncloud.conf and replace the line:

#ServerName www.example.com

```with:

ServerName your_domain.com

Next, you should edit the trusted_domains entry in you ownCloud configuration. This is located in /var/www/owncloud/config/config.php```

'trusted_domains' => 
  array (
    0 => 'your_domain.com',
  ),

You will need to restart Apache in order for the changes to take affect:

sudo service apache2 restart
