Install with data directory on a NAS CIF



First of all, thanks the OwcCloud team for this great application.

I'm running: ownCloud 9.1.1 (stable) on a VirtualBox CentOS 7 VM, as I do for all my servers/applications/appliances.

The first thing I had to solve was how to store my files on my NAS' cif.

The only way I managed to do that was to create a share on my NAS owned by my http user/group, and mount the owncloud data directory to it after the installation and before run it for the first time to finish the configuration.

I must say it works great as it did as a plugin in my NAS, but give me full control, back-up/snapshot capabilities, freedom to upgrade with the OC releases, etc.

My question is if there is another way to do that besides what I've described above?



You could mount user-based storage as well. The integration in their home-directory is exclusive to the enterprise version. So if you don't have any problems with your current configuration, I don't see a reason to do it differently.
