I actually have a question that might not be related to the Owncloud server itself but here it goes.
When you want to create a new folder that you want to share with a certain group within Owncloud, you can create a new “Local” folder within the /data folder of the server.
This is found on the admin page at the External Storage section.
You provide a new foldername, storage type is “Local”, at the configuration box you need to provide a location of a folder like /home/own/data/groupshare/testfolder and this folder should also have certain permissions?
The problem that I have is that this folder “testfolder” does not actually exist yet on the filesystem. This is not mentioned in any manual I have found. Will the GUI of Owncloud create this folder automatically for you? Or do you need to create this folder yourself using a putty session to the actual server? I don’t have any Linux experience, but I’ll find a way once I know where to look and what to set exactly.
