Hi. I had been operating Owncloud 8 on our server for about six months, and I have a database for it on an external USB drive that my system recognizes as /data. Owncloud and the database are both on /data on the external drive. There is a directory in /data called owncloud_data, which has my old Owncloud data. I have installed the current version of Owncloud 9 on CENTOS 7. I've gotten all the way to the Owncloud initial administrative interface at localhost.
I'm trying to get my new Owncloud installation to recognize my old data. I think I need to do two things: have the new Owncloud recognize the external drive, and get permission to read owncloud_data on that drive. I tried moving my old config.php file to the new Owncloud config directory and that didn't work so I started over and reinstalled the new Owncloud, so that currently has the default config.sys.
I set up Maria/MySql in connection with the new Owncloud 9 installation, and I had used that before with Owncloud 8.
As I say, I think I need to deal with the external drive and the permissioning of the old database, currently at /data/owncloud_data, which is on an external USB drive.
Can anyone help me with these final steps?
Thank you. Ron
