Error installing owncloud

Steps to reproduce

  1. yum install owncloud as root

Expected behaviour

Tell us what should happen
owncloud installs!

Actual behaviour

Tell us what happens instead
Error: Package: owncloud-9.1.5-1.el7.noarch (epel)
Requires: php-zip

followed by a bunch of file not found errors

When I tell it to install php-zip it says that the program is obsolete by another program that is already installed, so it doesn’t install it.
Output of yum install php-zip:
Package php72w-common-7.2.24-1.w7.x86_64 is obsoleted by php-common-7.2.25-1.el7.remi.x86_64 which is already installed

Server configuration

Operating system:
centos 7

PHP version:
see above

ownCloud version: (see ownCloud admin page)

Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install:
fresh install

Where did you install ownCloud from:

and tried epel repo

Signing status (ownCloud 9.0 and above):

Login as admin user into your ownCloud and access 
paste the results into and puth the link here.

The content of config/config.php:

Log in to the web-UI with an administrator account and click on
'admin' -> 'Generate Config Report' -> 'Download ownCloud config report'
This report includes the config.php settings, the list of activated apps
and other details in a well sanitized form.


If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ config:list system
from within your ownCloud installation folder

*ATTENTION:* Do not post your config.php file in public as is. Please use one of the above
methods whenever possible. Both, the generated reports from the web-ui and from occ config:list
consistently remove sensitive data. You still may want to review the report before sending.
If done manually then it is critical for your own privacy to dilligently
remove *all* host names, passwords, usernames, salts and other credentials before posting.
You should assume that attackers find such information and will use them against your systems.

List of activated apps:

If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ app:list
from within your ownCloud installation folder.

Are you using external storage, if yes which one: local/smb/sftp/… yes, but I’m not there yet

Are you using encryption: no

Are you using an external user-backend, if yes which one: LDAP/ActiveDirectory/Webdav/…

LDAP configuration (delete this part if not used)

With access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ ldap:show-config
from within your ownCloud installation folder

Without access to your command line download the data/owncloud.db to your local
computer or access your SQL server remotely and run the select query:
SELECT * FROM `oc_appconfig` WHERE `appid` = 'user_ldap';

Eventually replace sensitive data as the name/IP-address of your LDAP server or groups.

Client configuration


Operating system:


Web server error log

Insert your webserver log here

ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log)

Insert your ownCloud log here

Browser log

Insert your browser log here, this could for example include:

a) The javascript console log
b) The network log 
c) ...

I think you are using a no longer maintained repository, which has old an ownCloud version.
I would recommend you try adding the RHEL 7 repo to your CentOS box and try again. It should let you install the most recent version.

i even think that this is not a package provided by ownCloud but from another third party repository:
