Having a problem finding the install documentation

Hi there everyone!

I haven’t installed ownCloud since the incredibly handy php file install was offered. I went to the Docs page: https://owncloud.org/download/

And clicked “Install” under Documentation but it leads to a 404.

I see the portion showing how to add the repository but I have no idea how you would access the web panel or where files would get stored, etc.

Could someone point me toward the install process, including web access, settings for the phone app, etc? I’m on Debian 9.

Thanks for your time!

Packages Installation

hi there Dmitry and thanks very much for the reply. As I stated above:

I know how to install the package. That, however does nothing towards explaining to a user what to do next, that being how to access it from the web. When you used the owncloud setup script, you knew to visit that directory to log in. What do you do after an apt install owncloud?

You install ownCloud on a server, right? this server has an IP address.

if you have installed ownCloud, configured your apache server and have the right php modules (LAMP) then you can visit ownCloud by typing your server’s ip in a browser and adding /owncloud

It seems a little shortsighted to think that owncloud servers would be systems that only one person/group would be using and that the installer might not want it accessible across all the domains / web accounts installed on that server.

okay, either you have a concrete question to a part of the documentation, that we can discuss and add to the existing one, or you can try to implement what I have written or look for a solution in this forum, where users help other users.

You asked - what to do after apt install. I answered : ip/owncloud
