Upgrading ownCloud


  • Service Provider

    If you run your own instance of ownCloud you will need to handle updating it also.

    When I wrote my original How To on installing ownCloud, version 8.2.1 was current.

    Well 8.2.2 is now out, and you should update as soon as possible because ownCloud always recommends that you never skip even incremental updates.

    Assuming that you did a standard repository based install, then the upgrade process is extremely simple.

    Here are the commands for CentOS 7

    sudo yum -y update
    cd /var/www/html/owncloud
    sudo -u apache php occ maintenance:mode --off
    sudo -u apache php occ upgrade

    I use it for keeping important files in multiple locations. :-)

    It's really a File Sync tool, a la Dropbox, only better... and free for most of the things you'll need. lol.

    Depends. Most places it is a unlimited drop box for the sales force.

    One client it has a read only folder with about 60gb of service technician stuff in it.

    We run one OC system that is used for a client that has clients that need to move files to and from them from loaned hardware. It's a weird, complicated scenario. But OC works beautifully for it and has for years.
