    Default Setup

    Is ownCloud easy to setup or does it need much work and configuration to deploy?

    Would be pretty cool to run this on a Raspberry Pi or something.

    It's quite easy, in fact. I have done this using a Raspberry Pi and a raspbian sd card.
    The easy way is to install the owncloud package :
    Code:
    $>apt-get install owncloud
    and you are done. However, the packages version of owncloud may not be the latest.
    I personally installed lighttpd instead of apache and the latest owncloud zip from the official website, but this method requires more fiddling with configuration files.

    Can can run it on the raspberry pi, I do and it usually works great!

    A word of warning though, I updated to Ownloud 5.0 this morning remotely from work, and it bricked my installation....... I have to fix this when I get home.

    Official owncloud 5 release notes tell you to delete everything but Data and config and extract the sources overtop those 2 directories NOT do an in-place upgrade. Did you follow that note? >.>

    I couldnt imagine running this on the raspberry pi, I installed it on an eightcore AMD with 8gb of memory and an SSD and the performance wasnt that great even on the LAN, I suspect that its because of mysql. Large files were quick as were single small files but try syncing a folder with thousands of small files, takes hours. I have tried running it virtualized with NAS as well and many files did not sync. For average users with non critical data it works but if you are syncing thousands of small files it takes a long time. Would love if they updated to use nosql like mongodb or similar.

    I don't read the readme page.

    I used a script from "http://blog.petrockblock.com/2012/08/15/your-own-cloud-server-with-owncloud-on-the-raspberry-pi/" to automate the installation.

    Also the owncloud performace on the RPi is not bad, I'm havee 366 items (~260MB) sync'd. The intail syncing was slow but after that its fine. The RPi sits idle most of the day.
