Connecting desktop app


#1

Hi,

Does anybody have any suggestions for why I'm not able to connect my desktop app to http://www.australianpoultry.com.au/owncloud/

It says failed to connect, host not found.

Thank you.

You can try to connect to demo.owncloud.org with user/pw: test/test. If it fails you have a problem with your network connection (firewall?). If you can establish a connection to the demo-server, you should check your logfiles for more detailed information.

Thanks. I couldn't connect to demo.owncloud.org either.

Do you use the current client version 2.2.4? Open the logging window with F12.

Can you open the web-interface in your browser? Do you use security products (virus scanner, firewall) on your host or network?

Yes, I can access it using the site using chrome browser.

I downloaded the client this morning so the current version. I am not sure what you mean about the logging window (f12).

I am using Windows 10 with Windows firewall and Ad-Aware Anti-virus.

I see a problem in my server logs.

[Mon Oct 03 05:58:36 2016] [crit] client 49.193.24.155Permission denied: //owncloud/data/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable

The permissions on that file are 644

I installed an app on my phone called ocloud.de and it was able to connect, it's just my computer that won't do it.

I have tried the suggestions on this page but they didn't work for either my server or for demo.owncloud.org.

I'm hunting around the web for any clues. I've disabled my anti-virus. That didn't help either.
