== What is ownCloud?==
ownCloud gives you easy and universal access to all of your files.
It also provides a platform to easily view, sync and share your contacts, calendars, bookmarks and files across all your devices.
ownCloud 3 brings loads of new features and hundred of fixes…
* Sharing at the click of a button
We like to share things, so we made sure you can do that easily. You can share files with other users in your ownCloud instance or through a public link that you can send to anyone. Can be used as an open source dropbox alternative too.
* Explore your photos
ownCloud features a photo gallery application to help, view and organize photos of different file types. Photo albums are automatically created for uploaded photos and make it easy to scroll through your pictures.
* Edit your files on the go
With ownCloud, you can access and edit your documents in multiple ways. You can edit text files directly in your browser with the online text editor, or mount your files locally via WebDAV, viewing and editing them with the desktop apps you are used to.
== Set up ownCloud on Alpine Linux ==
This document will be a quick c/p guide to setup this file sharing system on Alpine linux. What we will setup is the following:
* Lighttpd with PHP
* MySql
* ownCloud
== Install lighttpd, PHP, and MySql ==
{{:Setting Up Lighttpd With FastCGI}}
Install extra packages:
{{Cmd|apk add php-mysql mysql mysql-client php-zip}}
== Installing and configuring  ownCloud ==
'''Install ownCloud'''
* Make webapps folder
{{Cmd|mkdir /usr/share/webapps/ -p}}
* Download
{{Cmd|cd /usr/share/webapps/
wget http://owncloud.org/releases/owncloud-4.5.7.tar.bz2}}
* Unpack
{{Cmd|tar xfj owncloud-4.5.7.tar.bz2
rm owncloud-4.5.7.tar.bz2}}
* Change Folder permissions
{{Cmd|chown -R lighttpd:lighttpd /usr/share/webapps/owncloud}}
* Make symlinks to ownCloud
{{Cmd|ln -s /usr/share/webapps/owncloud/ /var/www/localhost/htdocs/owncloud}}
== Config and start MySql ==
{{Cmd|<nowiki>/usr/bin/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
/etc/init.d/mysql start && rc-update add mysql default
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'password'</nowiki>}}
'''Create the ownCloud database'''
{{Cmd|mysql -u root -p}}
{{Cmd|CREATE DATABASE owncloud;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON owncloud.* TO 'owncloud'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'owncloud password';
== Config your ownCloud ==
* Browse
* "Create a administrator account"
:* User Name: <username> - new admin username
:* Password: <password> - new admin password
* "Set the storage folder:"
:* </usr/share/webapps/owncloud/data> - Storage folder
* "Configure the database"
:* User Name: <username> - db admin username
:* Password: <password> - db admin password
:* Database Name: owncloud - db name
:* Database Host: localhost - db host
After you've done that, click "Complete Installation"
You have ownCloud working, to access go to http://WEBSERVER_IP_ADDRESS/owncloud and enjoy!
'''Note:''' You will need to create at least one user.
== WebDAV ==
You can access ownCloud directly via WebDAV, as an Dropbox alternative.
Here we will explain how to setup WebDAV access on several Operating Systems.
Some applications only allow you to save to a local folder. By mounting ownCloud to a local folder, you can get around this issue.
=== Server configuration ===
* Add webdav packages
{{Cmd|apk add lighttpd-mod_webdav mod_dav_svn}}
* Configure the lighttpd
{{Cmd|nano +36 /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf}}
* Restart the web server
{{Cmd| /etc/init.d/lighttpd restart}}
* Confiugre the fstab
{{Cmd|nano /etc/fstab}}
  usr/share/webapps/owncloud/files/webdav.php /usr/share/webapps/owncloud/<username>/data/ davfs user,rw,noauto 0 0
Change <username> to the username created in the owncloud. e.g. public
{{Cmd|mount -a}}
=== Client configuration ===
Windows XP and Vista should work perfectly fine.
In Windows 7, you can map ownCloud as a network folder.
'''Enable the Webclient service Services'''.
* Webclient service (Mouse right click -> Enable)
'''Modify the registry'''
* Change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\BasicAuthLevel from 1 to 2.
* Restart Webclient service (Mouse right click -> Restart)
'''Map the network folder'''
* Go to My Computer (Mouse right click -> Mount Network Drive)
* In the Folder field type http://WEBSERVER_IP_ADDRESS/owncloud/files/webdav.php
* Check Connect using different credentials
