ownCloud Auto Install Script on Debian 7

Here is an easy way to install ownCloud on Debian 7 with a script, but first, for those who don’t know what ownCloud is:

ownCloud is a free and open-source web application for data synchronization, file sharing, and cloud storage. ownCloud is written in the PHP and JavaScript scripting languages. For change management, it employs SabreDAV, an open-source WebDAV server. …http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Owncloud

See it as your “own” private Dropbox, but much more secure as you’d be hosting it yourself.

 

Alright, let’s get down to it:

Make sure you’re running Debian 7

Keep in mind that this is a new installation so it will remove any existing MySQL, Nginx and Apache installation including any configuration you may have for these services.

Log into your Linux server/VPS via ssh and run the following command in one single line:

wget http://etapien.com/scripts/owncloud/owncloud.sh && chmod +x owncloud.sh && sh owncloud.sh

This script will download the script, make it executable and execute it.

There are a few instructions to follow on screen and you should be set, you now have a working installation of ownCloud.

Where to install this? Well, you can easily use a low ram VPS, I recommend Owned-Networks VPS plans for this, check them out at www.owned-networks.net

Now, If you’re curious to know what the script contains, here it is:

#!/bin/bash

echo ” Please browse to $d or your IP in your browser to access ownCloud”
echo ” The Database User is root and the password is the same as the one you entered above”
echo ” the Database is ownCloud and the host is localhost”
echo ” Once you have entered those details along with your new username and password ownCloud should work correctly.”
