I am a new user of OwnCloud and was able to set-up my own Owncloud 8.2.7 and get it up and running on CentOS 7 (minimal install with all ofther security patches installed) using Apache 2.4 (httpd) and a MySQL database.
Since there are allot of guides out there it was fairly simple to install, make the common security changes, configure APCu, setup clamscan and setup my signed ssl certificates. here
So i have been using OwnCloud for a couple of days now and i just love it!
With this in mind i ordered 2 extra 4TB disks, added them to my server in Raid-1.
Changed the partition table to GPT, added a partition, formatted it to be Ext4.
Created a mount point called, /store/ which is pointing to /dev/sdb1/ (the Ext4 partition).
Then added a folder called
After that i have set the permissions on these folders using:
chown -R apache.apache /store/* chown -R apache.apache /store/owncloud/*
Then went into the admin interface of OwnCloud and added the folder as a Local External Storage called "Backup".
When i did this i noticed the Green dot on the left side of the External Storage line so i was happy it worked!!
(ofcourse also set it available for my users)
.. Or not...
This is where my problem is;
When i now go to my user and go to "Files > Backup " i see this line telling me "You don't have permission to upload or create files here"
Also the icon for uploading files is missing.
Since 2 days now i am stuck on this issue and i now am ready to ask for help in this forum.
I ofcourse tried everything i could think of and searched google for 12 hours straight trying to find the right awnser but i cannot seem to find it.
Also i followed all the permission scripts which are available on the owncloud.org website itself but these wont seem to work either..
I tried deleting the External Storage and re-setting the permissions and then re-add the storage, with no luck.
Also tried re-setting the permissions while the httpd service was stopped.
Tried rebooting the server multiple times..
Created new folders, folders inside folders and adding the base direcotry instead of the /owncloud/ but nothing seems to work, all with the same result.
When i run #
sudo -u apache ls -la /store/owncloud, i get this output:
[CloudServer owncloud]# sudo -u apache ls -la /store/owncloud
drwxr-xr-x. 2 apache apache 4096 2 aug 12:40 .
drwxr-xr-x. 8 root root 4096 2 aug 13:45 ..
-rw-r--r--. 1 apache apache 495616 30 dec 2014 putty.exe
(i placed putty.exe in this directory which i am able to see in my OwnCloud interface inside the directory, i just cannot remove it)
When i run it on the base directory i get this result:
sudo -u apache ls -la /store/
drwxr-xr-x. 8 root root 4096 2 aug 13:45 .
dr-xr-xr-x. 18 root root 4096 2 aug 11:56 ..

drwx------. 2 apache apache 16384 2 aug 11:54 lost+found

Am i missing something ?
I checked the base /data folder for the Owncloud data which is on a other disk and those permissing seem to be the exact same...
