    Default Can anyone help me setup owncloud?

    I have been searching on how to setup ownCloud and cannot find a way to do this in OpenSuse 13.1 I have downloaded the installation and added the appropriate repositories however I'm not sure what to do from here. If anyone has any experience or at least know where I need to go to get started I would appreciate the help. I'm running on KDE 4(something or other) and would really love if someone could point me in the right direction.

    Hi
    Have a look at the manual install instructions for ideas, it's a matter of setting up a webserver, php, a database and owncloud, your system also needs to be running ldap authentication and have an ssl certificate etc.... lots of things!

    What I suggest you do is grab an appliance version to run in a virtual machine for you to try out and see how it works, would also suggest you look at doing that in the long term (as in your own version) with something like lvm (for disk space expansion) else you really need a dedicated machine to run it on, no desktop etc...

    can't you just run it in VM ?
    share the storage via samba or NFS from host to VM and point all VM stuff to the shares.

    there is a pre-configured own-cloud appliance in suse studio based on 13.1

    Thanks for the suggestion but I already started setting it up on the system I'm using so I'm going to stick with that. I have learned quite a bit and so far that has been worth it. Like how to setup a LAMP server. I still have some issues now with mostly getting owncloud setup. The official Admin doc is pointing to a file that I don't have. However the information is based on Ubuntu and not OpenSUSE.

    its pointing to: /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl

    My setup does not have a directory called sites-available nor does it have the file default-ssl

    I've joined the ownCloud forums to see what anyone over there can help me with but if someone here has Ideas I'm all ears

    I believe the directory layout for /etc/apache2 is a bit different between Ubuntu and openSUSE. You can find out what the layout is and where you should put things by looking in the file /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
    It has this schema:

    Code:
    # Overview of include files, chronologically:
    #
    # httpd.conf
    #  |
    #  |-- uid.conf  . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  UserID/GroupID to run under
    #  |-- server-tuning.conf  . . . . . . . . .  sizing of the server (how many processes to start, ...)
    #  |-- sysconfig.d/loadmodule.conf . . . . .  [*] load these modules
    #  |-- listen.conf . . . . . . . . . . . . .  IP adresses / ports to listen on
    #  |-- mod_log_config.conf . . . . . . . . .  define logging formats
    #  |-- sysconfig.d/global.conf . . . . . . .  [*] server-wide general settings
    #  |-- mod_status.conf . . . . . . . . . . .  restrict access to mod_status (server monitoring)
    #  |-- mod_info.conf . . . . . . . . . . . .  restrict access to mod_info
    #  |-- mod_usertrack.conf  . . . . . . . . .  defaults for cookie-based user tracking
    #  |-- mod_autoindex-defaults.conf . . . . .  defaults for displaying of server-generated directory listings
    #  |-- mod_mime-defaults.conf  . . . . . . .  defaults for mod_mime configuration
    #  |-- errors.conf . . . . . . . . . . . . .  customize error responses
    #  |-- ssl-global.conf . . . . . . . . . . .  SSL conf that applies to default server _and all_ virtual hosts
    #  |
    #  |-- default-server.conf . . . . . . . . .  set up the default server that replies to non-virtual-host requests
    #  |    |--mod_userdir.conf  . . . . . . . .  enable UserDir (if mod_userdir is loaded)
    #  |    `--conf.d/apache2-manual?conf  . . .  add the docs ('?' = if installed)
    #  |
    #  |-- sysconfig.d/include.conf  . . . . . .  [*] your include files
    #  |                                             (for each file to be included here, put its name
    #  |                                              into APACHE_INCLUDE_* in /etc/sysconfig/apache2)
    #  |
    #  `-- vhosts.d/ . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  for each virtual host, place one file here
    #       `-- *.conf . . . . . . . . . . . . .     (*.conf is automatically included)
    If you are looking to set up owncloud with ssl, your best bet would be to modify the template: /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/vhost-ssl.template
    Copy that file to owncloud.conf or something else ending in .conf and make the necessary modifications.

    Is this enough to get you started?
