External storage - switched on or off?


#1

I am using OwnCloud which is installed via Softacolous, a service of my hosting provider.
I created myself as the administrator.
Clicking on Personal - Storage limit OC tells me the operator has switch off external storage.
Clicking on Manager* - Storage limit OC has a checked box Switch on External Storage.
Beneath I see a line "smbclient is not installed..."

I try to connect Dropbox to OwnCloud, but it can't check my authentication key and password.

What is going wrong?

  • I do not know the right English terms, I am using the Dutch interface.

Do you have owncloud 10.0.3?

if yes

you have to enable it.

you have to install the smb client module.

https://doc.owncloud.com/server/10.0/admin_manual/enterprise/external_storage/windows-network-drive_configuration.html

here is described how to enable the external storage

what do you mean by "chan't check"?

I am using OwnCloud 10.0.3.
Because it is on a shared server, I can't access the installation files of these OwnCloud, so I am not able to install the Windows Network Drive App.

I created an API, but I do not know if the settings in the API are correct.

After that I entered the auth key and secret key into OwnCloud. OwnCloud said: Fetching requested tokens failed. Verify your app key and secret key are correct

I hope you can help me.

Guido

Do you have the new Dropbox App? https://marketplace.owncloud.com/apps/files_external_dropbox The old one got discontinued by Dropbox as the API doesn't work anymore.

Thanks for your reply.
I think I can't use these file. My OwnCloud is running on a shared server/hosting account.

Kind regards,
Guido

You should have the market app as its in the default settings. However we generally recommend to run ownCloud at a hoster where you have shell access!

Now I have OwnCloud running on a VPS.
But the config/config.php file is an empty file.
Is that right? If not, how to solve this?
