How to Supress default folders and pictures on a new intallation


Is it possible to supress default folders (Documents and Photos), OwnCloud user manual.pdf and pictures, coming with a new intallation (ownCloud 10.02 with mysql DB).

Currently I have to ask each new user to do it manualy.

Thank you in advance for your help


Hi ocussac,

Sure it is possible.

The configuration option skeletondirectory available in your config.php allows you to configure the directory where the skeleton files are located. These files will be copied to the data directory of new users.

Just installed OwnCloud, appliance version.
Cannot find any skeleton options in
If I search for skeleton on the Linux console I get this result






Is this one of them? If so, how should I be able to find it without searching for it?


if you can’t find the mentioned skeletondirectory in your config.php then i think you can add it based on the sample provided in the config.sample.php.
