Installing Owncloud on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS Xenial Xerus


#1

Hi @here : When I try to install owncloud on a virtual server Ubuntu 10.04 it return the following message :
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package owncloud is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
owncloud-files

E: Package 'owncloud' has no installation candidate

If I push the following command apt show owncloud the server respond :
Package: owncloud
State: not a real package (virtual)
N: Can't select candidate version from package owncloud as it has no candidate
N: Can't select versions from package 'owncloud' as it is purely virtual
N: No packages found

If someone know how can I do? Thanks in advance

do you mean 16.04?

ownCloud as a package has been discontinued, and you get ownCloud with the "owncloud-files" package. That is just ownCloud software, without the dependencies.

Just install the owncloud-files and update it regularly :slight_smile:

Also - reading the docs always helps :slight_smile:

Yes Ubuntu 16.04; I wil try with owncloud-files. Thanks


#4

...But owncloud file is already install :
ii owncloud-files 10.0.4-1.1 all ownCloud - Server
and I could not launch owncloud :
● owncloud.service
Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
Active: inactive (dead)

Thanks for help


#5

So you have installed the package owncloud files? right?

and you can't access owncloud via the web ui?


#6

yes, that's i. In addition, the onwcloud.conf do not exist


#7

please look at this steps and check if you have already executed them.

Since owncloud-files delivers only the code that is required for owncloud to run, you have to install the other stuff, including the owncloud.conf

Hi dmitry,

The install has succeded, but when i try to access to the web page, I can not connect and had a message...(see screenshot jointed)
The config.php file is already edited with the right informations
How can I do to solve this please?
Thanks


#9

please add the IP address you are trying to access owncloud from to the trusted domains in config.php

#11

Is this a fresh installation?


#12

Yes it is, so it's ok for the administrator access. how can i invite other people?

Here you can find all the answers to your questions regarding the server:

https://doc.owncloud.com/server/10.0/admin_manual/

and here you can find all the answers regarding using owncloud as an user:

https://doc.owncloud.com/server/10.0/user_manual/

The ownCloud team constructed the documentation with great effort.
You should take a look at this docs.
:slight_smile:


#14

Great, thank you very much :wink:


#15

Hello, I did not find in the docs how can I solve certificat problem. Because I did a redirection on https for all http requests. Do you have an idea?
Thanks


#16

Have you tried to comment out that redirection?


#17

No because i have added it into the configuration file
but the web borwser doesn't accept a certificate self signed


#18

If you added it - you can remove it - right?


#19

yes sure, As I would like to use a secure access...never mind
An other issue, I would like to user swift storage as a backend of Owncloud but I don't find how to declare it. I just create the container


#20

would you mind opening a new issue for this?

That would make it easier for users to search for answers to their issues.

This one started with packaging issue then another one and now storage.
