HDD drives, allocation storage


I’m running owncloud on a Raspiberry.
Is it possibe to allocate several file folders to different hdd drives?


If you have the drives mounted on your system you can add additional local external storages within ownCloud. The web servers (apache) user, on Debian based systems www-data, needs to be able to read and write in the directories in order to be able to use them from ownCloud.


Since this is a significant security risk, Local storage is only configurable via the ownCloud admin settings. Non-admin users cannot create Local storage mounts.

To enable Local storage, you must first enable it by editing your ownCloud installation’s config/config.php file adding the following configuration key:
'files_external_allow_create_new_local' => 'true',
