Fresh installation problem

Please help us by providing the following info. Before posting please also check the pinned "Known issues" threads and make sure that you're running the latest available version for your oC release:

Steps to reproduce
1.Downloaded the own server edition of OwnCloud
2.Unzipped the file on my live server and followed the installation procedure for MySql

Expected behaviour
I am assuming that a fresh installation (not an upgrade) would go smoothly with all files and errors non-existent.

Actual behaviour
All went well until it complained about .user.ini missing and the .htaccess INVALID_HASH. I created a .user.ini file (empty) in the root and now after rescan, it complains for both files about the INVALID_HASH.

Server configuration
Operating system: Linux Ubuntu 64bit
Web server: Apache2
Database: MySql
PHP version: 5.5
ownCloud version (see ownCloud admin page): 9.1.3
Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install: fresh install
Special configuration (external storage, external authentication, reverse proxy, server-side-encryption): no

Can you provide a link where you downloaded owncloud? Or did you install it via packet manager? If you transfer or copy files/folders, some programs omit hidden files (starting with a point).

Hi - yes. I got the file from "". I also must add I am new to this system but I can understand how to install it! So what I did was this: I wget it from that link. I untarred id with "tar xvfj owncloud-9.1.3.tar.bz2". Then I chowned all the files to the right owners. I created a database and then followed the screen instruction in using mysql instead of sqlite. Then it did something but that banner keeps showing...

I hope that was helpful :wink:

Oh and thank you for getting back to me so soon.

That should be the right way. Did you copy the folder, the normal cp commmand doesn't copy the hidden files (you need options -al I think).

Hi - I simply unzipped it using that command: directly into the folder. So I didn't have to copy anything, I just downloaded the zipped file from your site using a simple wget command. The file downloaded, I unzipped it and simply went to it via the browser. So there was no need to make any copying. If you happen to have those 2 files - would you mind forwarding them to me? Then I can place them in the root folder and hopefully that sorts out the issue?

These files are included with a correct hash in your downloaded file

Hi I am unsure what happened, but after I downloaded it again I came right thank you!
