Hi.
I need to move my ownCloud 9 installation to a new server. I have read some forum entries as well as the documentation, and they all refer to backing up the data directory.

There is no data directory in my installation of ownCloud. So what do I do? How can I move my owncloud installation to a new server?

Thanks

Hi,

there is always a data directory on a ownCloud installation (without it oC just won't work) so you can follow the instructions provided here:
