Basic ownCloud installation on openSUSE Leap
This tutorial describes how to install ownCloud using command line. I followed the official documentation of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installation.
Why choose openSUSE Leap? openSUSE Leap is a brand new way of building openSUSE and is new type of hybrid Linux distribution. Leap uses source from SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE), which gives Leap a level of stability unmatched by other Linux distributions, and combines that with community developments to give users, developers and sysadmins the best stable Linux experience available. Contributor and enterprise efforts for Leap bridge a gap between matured packages and newer packages found in openSUSE’s other distribution Tumbleweed. You can download openSUSE Leap from the site https://software.opensuse.org/.
First of all, let's install the required and recommended modules for a typical ownCloud installation, using Apache and MariaDB, by issuing the following commands in a terminal:
zypper in apache2 mariadb apache2-mod_php5 php5-gd php5-json php5-fpm php5-mysql php5-curl php5-intl php5-mcrypt php5-zip php5-mbstring php5-zlib
Next step, create a database. First of all start the service.
systemctl start mysql.service systemctl enable mysql.service
The root password is empty by default. That means that you can press enter and you can use your root user. That's not safe at all. So you can set a password using the command:
mysqladmin -u root password newpass
Where newpass is the password you want.
Now you set the root password, create the database.
mysql -u root -p (you'll be asked for your root password) CREATE DATABASE owncloudb; GRANT ALL ON owncloudb.* TO ocuser@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'dbpass';
Database user: ocuser Database name: owncloudb Database user password: dbpass
You can change the above information accordingly.
Now you should edit the php.ini file.
change the values
post_max_size = 50G upload_max_filesize = 25G max_file_uploads = 200 max_input_time = 3600 max_execution_time = 3600 session.gc_maxlifetime = 3600 memory_limit = 512M
and finally enable the extensions.
You should enable some modules. Some might be already enabled.
a2enmod php5 a2enmod rewrite a2enmod headers a2enmod env a2enmod dir a2enmod mime
Now start the apache service.
systemctl start apache2.service systemctl enable apache2.service
Before the installation, create the data folder and give the right permissions (preferably outside the server directory for security reasons). I created a directory in the /mnt directory. You can mount a USB disk, add it to fstab and save your data there. The commands are:
mkdir /mnt/owncloud_data chmod -R 0770 /mnt/owncloud_data chown wwwrun /mnt/owncloud_data
Now download ownCloud. Then unzip and move the folder to the server directory.
wget https://download.owncloud.org/community/owncloud-9.1.1.zip unzip owncloud-9.1.1.zip cp -r owncloud /srv/www/htdocs chown -R wwwrun /srv/www/htdocs/owncloud/
Make sure that everything is OK and then delete the folder owncloud and owncloud-9.1.1.zip from the root (user) directory.
Now open your browser to the server IP/owncloud
Set your administrator username and password. Your data directory is: /mnt/owncloud_data Regarding database, use the following. Database user: ocuser Database name: owncloudb Database user password: dbpass
Wait until it ends the installation. The page you'll see is the following.
For more configuration, you can follow the official documentation. This was the basic installation on openSUSE Leap.
