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.

You have ownCloud working, to access go to http://WEBSERVER_IP_ADDRESS/owncloud and enjoy!

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.
- Add webdav packages
- Configure the lighttpd
- Restart the web server
- Confiugre the 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
Windows XP and Vista should work perfectly fine.
In Windows 7, you can map ownCloud as a network folder.
