Step 2: setting up the network download the software

So first off we need to give the Pi a fix IP address we do this by editting the network interfaces file

$ sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

Once open we need to make the file look like this (your IP address might be different)

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
       address 192.168.1.118
       gateway 192.168.1.1
       netmask 255.255.255.0
       network 192.168.1.0
       broadcast 192.168.1.255

The file then needs to be saved by pressing ctrl o and ctrl  x to exit

once exited the networking need to be restarted

$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

After that is done we need to update the Pi and download the software. This will take a little while to complete

$ sudo apt-get update

We are going to install Apache with SSL, PHP5, PHP APC which will load pages faster

$ sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-json php5-gd php5-sqlite curl libcurl3 libcurl4-openssl-dev php5-curl php5-gd php5-cgi php-pear php5-dev build-essential libpcre3-dev php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php-apc gparted
<p>I will update this post with a much easier and clear instructional since it is outdated. </p><p>This will help you install owncloud 8.x on an existing Raspbian Jessie install.</p><p>You will need a 64gb SD card. class 10 minimum write speed of 20 recommended. </p><p> Use this instructional video... However instead of typing version 6 in the Download use version8.</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/0FBjZoAfHgg" width="500"></iframe></p><br><p>use this </p>
<p>How do you &quot;partion and format the drive&quot;? I can do everything else I just can't figure out this part!!!</p>
<p>i could not get the php apc install</p><p>every time i try its came with error &quot;makefile:186: recipe for taget 'apc)cache.lo' faild &quot;</p><p>anyone could help me to fix this error please</p>
<p>Nice little instructable! I noticed a little typo, that might be vital if someone is just copy and pasting. In step 5 it says to use gparted and then the command says<br>$ sudo gprarted<br>There is an extra 'r' in there.</p>
<p>would this instructable work with a raspberry pi zero</p>
<p>Pi Zero have no network interface. As far as I know; it is not yet tested with external network. but if you do all this, it should work.</p>
<p>can you stream video over the network?</p>
<p>This is great! Thanks so much. It works perfectly, except, when I install the desktop client, OwnCloud wants to connect to https. If I try my site with https, it fails. With regular http, it works fine. How do I enable https on my RPi?</p>
<p>you need to set up a self signed certificate, turn on ssl in one of the config files, try look at the below link</p><p>https://doc.owncloud.org/server/6.0/admin_manual/installation/installation_source.html#web-server-configuration</p>
<p>So will this let me login from anywhere even from outside my network?</p>
<p>set up port forwarding in your router and get external ip by going to ipchicken.com </p><p>then type in http(s)://[external ip]/owncloud to access</p>
<p>Great article. thanks. Also recommend looking at the owncloud installation via <strong>apt-get</strong>. Easier than downloading the link and handling ownership permissions for a begineer :-)</p><p> <a href="http://projpi.com/diy-home-projects-with-a-raspberry-pi/pi-owncloud-drop-box-clone/" rel="nofollow">http://projpi.com/diy-home-projects-with-a-raspber...</a></p>
<p>hi i can access my owncloud login page fine from my local network,using my noip address. but when i try to go to my logon page in a browser from a remote computer. then i just get a white screen. have got any ideas on this please?</p>
<p>Have you port forwarded?</p>
<p>sorry, didn't see the other comments :)</p>
<p>Try to open ports on your router</p>
Its ok. My fault. Another program on my pc was blocking the ports. All works great now. :-)
<p>No problem :D... I'm glad to hear, that my advice helped you :D</p>
<p>So, what's your point?</p><p>How have your comments added to the effort put in by the author?</p><p>Why don't you write an instructable on how to build a personal cloud server based on the bannanapi?</p>
<p>in the march 2015 you can get version 8.0.0 working on your raspberry pi</p><p>you have to do:</p><p>wget <a href="https://download.owncloud.org/community/owncloud-8.0.0.tar.bz2" rel="nofollow">https://download.owncloud.org/community/owncloud-8...</a></p><p>and to untar downloaded file</p><p>sudo tar -xjf owncloud-8.0.0.tar.bz2</p><p>Enjoy :D</p>
<p>Hi MGI1, I got a question. I want to do it for the first time. Should the image be installed before doing wget... ? Tks</p>
<p>What image? Raspbian?</p>
<p>Yes. It could be... or the one you've setup (Clouddit.iso)...</p><p>tks</p>
<p>You need to have Raspbian installed!! And then just follow all the instructions until the 4th step. Then you replace first two commands with commands i gave you, and then continue :D...</p>
<p>Thank you very much!</p>
<p>MGl1</p><p>New here... I'm looking to do this process, but I struggle with a some steps. First is on step 2. I don't find a ip address. I can do ifconfig and see I have one, and can use the browser as well. But when I use the command nothing shows up. Second, on step 3 I seemed to do well and find everything until I try following the &quot;find extension=section&quot;. Where do I put this command/extension? From there I figured I'll wait until I can really get those things working. If you could let me know that would be amazing! Thanks!</p>
<p>On the Banana Pi you can also create an Cloud System with more power: <a href="http://www.bananapi-kaufen.de/" rel="nofollow"> http://www.bananapi-kaufen.de/</a></p>
<p>externsion = section doesn't exist in the file. extension = section doesn't exist in the file. </p>
<p>i think he means extention</p>
<p>Great instructable. Thank you</p>
<p>I'm getting the error &quot;chown: cannot access `/media/owncloud': no such file or directory&quot; even though I've followed your steps to the T. Help is appreciated</p>
<p>the reference directory for the owncloud server is no longer there. (return error 404). with this info, if I had to guess, the owncloud directory is never created. Checkout the link below for updated installs.</p><p>http://software.opensuse.org/download/package?project=isv:ownCloud:community&amp;package=owncloud</p>
<p>when do you get this response?</p>
<p>I'm getting the same error, after attempting to partition the drive - it's likely that I'm doing that step wrong, but since there's no direction in the step, I don't know how to change that.</p>
<p>thanks loads!! it works great! your tut has helped me so much.</p><p>:-)</p>
<p>Thanks for the guide! I was thinking about buying a pi and doing this. Just one question, will it work equally well with say a banana pi or cubieboard? They seem to have a lot faster network speed and general specs.</p><p>Also, I didnt understand if this is like an independent OS or if you like install it on raspbian or whatever is the OS on the pi? I kinda would like to use owncloud on the pi together with OTHER usages too if possible.</p>
<p>For folks looking for a dead simple (and free) way to roll your own Dropbox, check out odrive. The SFTP integration gives you the Dropbox experience on anything that runs SSH which, of course, can include the Raspberry Pi.</p><p><a href="http://blog.odrive.com/blog/2014/12/16/create-your-own-dropbox-to-nas-mac-linux" rel="nofollow">http://blog.odrive.com/blog/2014/12/16/create-your...</a></p><p>Full disclosure: I work for odrive. The reason I work here is because I am passionate about this stuff. I fought hard for the SFTP integration because I think it will open up a whole new world of possibilities for your existing storage and devices, so I am trying to get the word out. Overlaying sync on top of SSH gives you that &quot;Dropbox experience&quot; against your own storage, pretty much instantly.</p>
<p>You are spamming for a product that doesn't even exist for linux? Fresh.</p>
<p>I realize that it will not be for everyone, and certainly isn't a 1-to-1 replacement for Owncloud, which is a great product. We are looking into client integration to Owncloud, as a matter of fact. </p><p>I am simply trying to offer up an easy way to achieve dropbox-like access to your own storage, because I know how difficult it can be for some, as evidenced in these comments. </p><p>A linux client actually does exist, it is just in private beta right now. Windows and Mac clients, however, are already available to the public for free.</p>
<p>Mhm. Quick feedback: you currently do not have the product you are trying to sell. This is a site for how-to's and instructables. You are not supplying it. This is spam, and not what I'm looking for.</p>
<p>Tony, when will the linux client be made available?</p>
<p>Hi Dominic,</p><p>We are shooting to have something out in March, if not sooner. Since the client will allow linking to not only SFTP but many other sources like OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.., there is a lot to work through, as you can imagine. You can keep up-to-date on our blog and forums, though.</p>
<p>Excellent. I use odrive to access multiple Google Drive accounts on my Windows PC and there are a few files that I would like to back up to Google Drive from my Raspberry Pi. If you need any beta testers for the Google Drive integration on Linux let me know! Thanks.</p>
<p>hello</p><p>I have a little problem, my raspbery won't recognize my Hard Disc?<br>What can I do about that?</p>
<p>do you still have this problem? I'm no wiz, but maybe I can help.</p>
