I have hard times trying to (become a sysadmin ) configure my ownCloud instance on an OVH VPS.
My configuration: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / ownCloud 10.0.2. I've installed the application on a Virtual Private Server at OVH, which brings also an additional disk, seen as /dev/vdb1. I've mounted this disk as /mnt/diskext and created a folder oc/data.
Now I'd like to use this folder as the main repository for my company and store all shared files into oc/data (first copy would be done with FTP). I've already set up "Enable external storage" = ON.
Unfortunately, I don't know:
- how I should configure "external storage" in ownCloud to point to this folder ! I've found several "support protocols", such as Amazon S3, Dropbox and the likes but nothing enabling "plain old hard disk"...
- if the additional disk is managed as a virtual disk, which "protocol" is used to access it
- if I should use /dev/vdb1/oc/data as folder name or /mnt/diskext/
As you can see, very dummy questions but these are my first steps as a (temporary) sysadmin!
Thanks in advance for any help!
