I’m pretty sure this is possible by creating a theme and using css to hide it.

it isnt possible to remove something from the code. i mean if i can get an exact file for it

copy /htdocs/settings/css/settings.css to /htdocs/themes/[yourthemename]/settings/css/settings.css and paste

#app-navigation > ul > li:nth-child(2){
   display: none;

this is htdocs-level, may be that your name is different. settings and themes are on the same level like core and lib

Well right, that’s the deprecated way of theming owncloud < 10, but it still works. You’ll find instructions for the new way of theming here:

followed it but int the last getting occ:command not found
(running on ubuntu)

Now I’m in the dark, since I’m still using the old fashioned theming. You mean occ app:enable mynewtheme? Can you activate your theme-app manually in [your_owncloud_url]/settings/admin?sectionid=apps&category=disabled ?

NO i can’t :(, need a solution for occ

Find out if you have an occ wrapper script installed by running as root:

command -v occ

Either this will show a path to a script your $PATH, or you will have to run occ like so:

sudo -u www-data php -f /path/to/owncloud/occ #ubuntu
sudo -u apache php -f /path/to/owncloud/occ #centos/rhel

Regarding the wrapper script: the ansible owncloud role installs the following on CentOS 7:

[root@ocserver ~]# command -v occ 
[root@ocserver ~]# echo $PATH
[root@ocserver ~]# cat $(command -v occ)
# Shortcut for running ownClouds `occ` command when not logged in as apache user and sudo allows it.

# Ansible managed

set -euo pipefail

: "${USER:=nobody}"

cd '/var/www/owncloud' || exit 1

if [ "$USER" == 'apache' ]; then
        /opt/rh/rh-php72/root/usr/bin/php --file '/var/www/owncloud/occ' "$@"
        sudo -E -u 'apache' /opt/rh/rh-php72/root/usr/bin/php --file '/var/www/owncloud/occ' "$@"
