Messed up my install

I'm sure I made a simple mistake along the way.

I have a raspberry pi running raspbian Jesse.
I found several articles talking about setting up various remote storage systems, including at least three for owncloud. When I type in my ip address I get a standard gnixn webpage. If I add /owncloud I get the same thing.
I'm not surewhere things are pointing. I know I have a /var/www/owncloud directory.

I guess my question is, how does my server know where to look for the right index.htlm file.

Steps to reproduce

Actual behaviour

Tell us what happens instead

Server configuration

Operating system:

Web server:


PHP version:

ownCloud version: (see ownCloud admin page)

Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install:

Where did you install ownCloud from:

Signing status (ownCloud 9.0 and above):

Login as admin user into your ownCloud and access 
paste the results into and puth the link here.

The content of config/config.php:

Log in to the web-UI with an administrator account and click on
'admin' -> 'Generate Config Report' -> 'Download ownCloud config report'
This report includes the config.php settings, the list of activated apps
and other details in a well sanitized form.


If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ config:list system
from within your ownCloud installation folder

*ATTENTION:* Do not post your config.php file in public as is. Please use one of the above
methods whenever possible. Both, the generated reports from the web-ui and from occ config:list
consistently remove sensitive data. You still may want to review the report before sending.
If done manually then it is critical for your own privacy to dilligently
remove *all* host names, passwords, usernames, salts and other credentials before posting.
You should assume that attackers find such information and will use them against your systems.

List of activated apps:

If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ app:list
from within your ownCloud installation folder.

Are you using external storage, if yes which one: local/smb/sftp/...

Are you using encryption: yes/no

Are you using an external user-backend, if yes which one: LDAP/ActiveDirectory/Webdav/...

LDAP configuration (delete this part if not used)

With access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ ldap:show-config
from within your ownCloud installation folder

Without access to your command line download the data/owncloud.db to your local
computer or access your SQL server remotely and run the select query:
SELECT * FROM `oc_appconfig` WHERE `appid` = 'user_ldap';

Eventually replace sensitive data as the name/IP-address of your LDAP server or groups.

Client configuration


Operating system:


Web server error log

Insert your webserver log here

ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log)

Insert your ownCloud log here

Browser log

Insert your browser log here, this could for example include:

a) The javascript console log
b) The network log 
c) ...

would be nice to have a little more info about your setup. can you post your config.php?
its in /var/www/owncloud/config/config.php

did you create an owncloud.conf in your apache dir?

what manual / doc / how to did you follow to install owncloud?

First of all, thank you.
I read the auto added part and ran pi@raspberrypi:/var/www/owncloud $ sudo -u www-data php occ config:list system
ownCloud is not installed - only a limited number of commands are available

There are no commands defined in the
"config" namespace.

So it lookslike I didn't actually install it.
I used the first link on the owncloud website. I'll try to get to s computer as typing on my phone is tough.
My confog.php is blank

you killed you config.php - can you recover it? if not there is nothing we can do

That's probably my problem.
What's the best way to do an uninstall/reinstall?
sudo apt-get remove owncloud?
Maybe with the --purge option?

just open your installation in the browser and the install screen will pop up

Ha, the funny thing is if done all of this headless.
