Owncloud 7 Installation at All-Inkl hosting

Doing a manual installation of owncloud 7 can be a pain – if you don’t know what to do.
This is my personal way to get it installed:


  • Create a new MySQL DB within KAS, note username and password
  • Create a new subdomain if needed (proposed) and activate SSL (proposed)
  • download owncloud as a tar-bz file
  • upload the tar-bz file and unpack it right a way (best use webFTP)
  • edit the .htaccess and
    • add “php_value magic_quotes_gpc off” behind the memory limit
      (in my case as line 14)
    • add “php_value session.save_path /www/htdocs/<LOGIN>/tmp”  as you dont have access rights to the official tmp folder
  • CHMOD folder apps, lib and config to 755
  • CHOWN owncloud folder to php-user

The actual installation

  1. go to the installation folder
  2. setup your own administrator account (save them somewhere safe)
  3. choose a MySQL DB, insert credentials as username, database name and the password.
  4. create a user for daily use

SSL Integration

  1. CHOWN config.php at configconfig.php
  2. add ssl-account.com as a trusted domain
  3. edit and edit and add:
    'overwritehost' => 'ssl-account.com',
    'overwriteprotocol' => 'https',
    'overwritewebroot' => '/oc.eure-domain.de',
    'overwritecondaddr' => '^%eure-IP-bei-allinkl.com%$',
    'forcessl' => 'true'

Final question: why do I post if others did the same? Because I need to remember it! 😉
