Reinstall own cloud on my server

Hi, I installed owncloud on my web space. It seems good.
I uploaded 100gb personal data.
Now I have several problems, like I cannot rename folders, or move into other folder.

I have problems with WebDav broken…

There’s a way to reinstall ownCloud without lose all my data and settings?


Hi AmphybiouS,

I do not think a reinstall will help in your case. When you cannot rename folders this looks like a configuration problem.
This is, where we come to the issue template, which was shown when you created your posting, which - unfortunately - you decided not to fill in.

For your convencience, here are the relevant parts again. Especially the owncloud.log in your data directory contains important information. Without this I’m afraid nobody could help you.

Server configuration

Operating system:

Web server:


PHP version:

ownCloud version:

Storage backend (external storage):



Please use Gist ( or a similar code paster for longer

Template for output < 10 lines


  1. Web server error log:

  2. Server logfile: ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log):

Additionally provide the output of
ls -laz /path/to/your/owncloud/installation


I think the problem is caused from multCloud when I tried to move a folder. multCloud give me an error, and the folder is stuck.

Other users in my ownCloud can use the platform without problems.
I think that one folder of my admin user is flagged ‘in use’ and I cannot rename, move or make any changes. Others folder in my space working good.

There’s a way to unflag this folder and make writable again?

Thank you !

WIthout more information about the level of access you have, error messages and what exactly stuck means, we can’t really help you here in this forum…

Solved by disabling ‘filelocking.enabled’ => false,
Now, i can move and rename folders.

I notice that CRON don’t work automatically… how i can run it up?


Never heared of multCloud!
My advice (seriously): Do not turn 2 knobs at the same time
