Installed macSierra -> Parallels For Mac 12 -> Ubuntu 16.04 -> owncloud-9.1.1-1.2
Not an upgrade. A clean install of Ubuntu 16.04 as a virtual machine & ownCloud 9.1
As documented in download.owncloud.org/download/repositories/9.1/owncloud/
sudo wget -nv https://download.owncloud.org/download/repositories/stable/Ubuntu_16.04/Release.key -O Release.key
sudo apt-key add - < Release.key
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.owncloud.org/download/repositories/stable/Ubuntu_16.04/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install owncloud
"SQLite is the default database for ownCloud Server (it is not available and not supported in the ownCloud Enterprise edition), and it is good only for testing and lightweight single-user setups without client synchronization.
Supported databases are MySQL/MariaDB, Oracle 11g (ownCloud Enterprise edition only), and PostgreSQL. We recommend MySQL/MariaDB. Your database and PHP connectors must be installed before you run the Installation Wizard.
When you install ownCloud from packages all the necessary dependencies will be satisfied (see Manual Installation on Linux for a detailed listing of required and optional PHP modules)."
Because I installed ownCloud from the Ubuntu 16.04 packages (as detailed above), I kind of expected that MySql/Mariadb would be installed. When I "Finish setup" the first time, the message indicated there was NO database to connect to.
So I did sudo apt-get install mariadb-server.
Now I get SQLSTATE[HY000] Access denied for user "ocdbadmin"@'localhost'.
Do I file a bug for the Ubuntu 16_04 owncloud package? It does not install mariadb-server as documentation implies it will. oC recommends MariaDB and by using the package "all necessary dependencies will be satisfied".
Do I file a bug on the documentation? Since it does not say that mariadb-server should be manually installed before finishing setup. But implies that maybe manual install is required by saying "your database and PHP connectors must be installed before you run the Installation Wizard."
Is there something else going on here?
If somebody can push me in the right direction, I will file whatever would be an appropriate bug report.
Maybe you could even tell me what permissions are needed to resolve "access denied".
Thanking in advance whoever kind soul responds.
