Thanks for your reply. We followed the said procedure mentioned by OwnCloud and also in alignment with our overall system. We just upgraded the OS and migrated the same framework to a faster drive partition in the same system. Otherwise, everything was done as per suggested installation method and was fully functional before.
Note: As a follow up to this message, I also shared the following with a couple of mentioned individuals at owncloud further elaborating the issue by email, which touched upon what you had asked in this message
Let me start with the file permissions within the data folder:
root@lamp-1-dns-1:################ ls -alZ
drwxrwx— 1 root root ? 32 Aug 5 22:12 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 web15 client2 ? 516 Aug 5 22:38 …
-rw-r–r-- 1 root www-data ? 542 Aug 5 21:55 .htaccess
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root ? 0 Aug 5 22:12 .ocdata
Please note that I also ran the bash script given on the Owncloud site to optimize the permissions list, which was also captured in my email.
Email sent to the OwnCloud support team after posting this message:
Hello OwnCloud Team:
This message is with regard to a couple of errors that I am seeing on the Owncloud landing page. We have had this installation for some time and started seeing this error after our recent upgrade in OS, and migration to a new drive.
We also tried to address the issue by confirming the presence of .ocdata and also ran a bash script to add right permissions aligning with the two error messages. Even after making these changes, we don’t see the error getting fixed. I also tried to share the same issue over through the Owncloud forum, and have not received any response over there.
Changing permissions: (Output from Bash script)
Do you want to secure your .htaccess files post installing/upgrade (y/N)? y
Securing .htaccess files with chmod/chown
Bash script Reference:
/installation/installation_wizard.html#data-directory-location on the OwnCloud site
I would also like to add that Nextcloud, which is similar to Owncloud is fully functional on our server after the switch.
If you happen to have any suggestions in this regard, please let me know.
@enebauer: When it comes to template, not sure what you meant by that. Please share the link and I will follow that template for server topics in the future.
