Missing "Sharing section" on Admin page OC V10.0.9


I installed OC 10.0.9 on a raspi stretch with nginx php7 and sqlite3. OC is running on a usb-stick and I can do everything but sharing. On the admin page i miss the sharing section, so i cant set up the sharing options. Does anyone know what i have to do to see that section?

Removing and reinstalling of OC and sqlite3 didnt change anything at all.

I tried to fill out the textlist as best i could, Thanks in advance…

How did you setup ownCloud? What guide were you following? did you read the official documentation?

Also is there a specific reason why you are using sqlite over mysql?

Edit: Just installed oC 10.0.9 with sqlite on my VM and I have the sharing section in the admin settings page.

Hi dmitry,

I used this guide for installing on a complete new system:

The only reason i used sqlite3 was that tutorial. In the official documentation i only find the sharing section for options but i dont have it.

thanks ck1900

Okay, I suppose you don’t have shares or a lot of users.

What I would suggest is to install mariadb-server and the php modules for it, edit your config.php to connect to the mariadb-server and finish the installation in the web UI.

In short - switch to mysql.


maybe it could help if you could provide a screenshot where you’re looking for this sharing option and a link to the documentation you’re looking at for this sharing option?

I have added two pictures, first where i would expect what is described in the second picture, which is from the admin manual.

Switching to mysql/mariadb will maybe take me to some other problems so i am not sure if i should give it a try…


Can you check in the apps section if the files_sharing app is installed?


strange enough i’m also not getting the “Sharing” Icon shown on 10.0.9/10.0.10 within the admin section even with the “Share Files 0.11.0” app enabled. I’m pretty sure this was there some versions ago.

But if i’m accessing the following link directly (luckily i had this in my browser history) i’m getting the settings presented:


Ok, i did the obvious step first and used another browser (Chrome) which is showing the “Sharing” section icon just fine. After restarting Firefox with disabled addons i also get the icon shown.

So it seems to me some browser addons / settings are removing the Icon/Section.

hi tom42,

you made my day…
With the link i could see the options and without “ublock Origin” i can see the sharing section in the admin panel.

thx dmitry for trying to help me and special thx to tom42

Need to integrate that in the documentation.
