Two instances on the same data folder

Hello Guys,

I’m trying to do a manual upgrade of my OC server (8.1.0) to the latest one (10.0.9). I’m in a production environment and i just wanted to know if it is safe to have two OC server instances on the same server working with a different database but on the same data folder.

Thanks for your help,


i don’t think that this is a good idea. From what i know ownCloud keeps some metadata about the content of the data folder in its database. And if you have instance1 and instance2 with different databases working on the same data folder the metadata in the database will differ from whats saved in the database.

Hello tom, thanks for your reply. Ok, then i can’t try without cut down the old instance. i will add storage and will test by copying the data folder.

Thanks !
