What is OwnCloud?


OwnCloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. OwnCloud is functionally very similar to the widely used Dropbox, with the primary functional difference being that the Server Edition of OwnCloud is free and open-source, and thereby allowing anyone to install and operate it without charge on a private server.

It also supports extensions that allow it to work like Google Drive, with online document editing, calendar and contact synchronization, and more. Its openness avoids enforced quotas on storage space or the number of connected clients, instead of having hard limits (like on storage space or the number of users) defined only by the physical capabilities of the server.

Package Required to Install

  1. OwnCloud
  2. Webserver: You can Install any one of the Webservers from the List. [Optional]
 LAMP Webserver - Apache2 / MariaDB / PHP
 LASP Webserver - Apache2 / SQLite / PHP
 LEMP Webserver - Nginx / MariaDB / PHP

 LLMP Webserver - Lighttpd / MariaDB / PHP

I have added my samba drive in external storage but i try to open it in owncloud, i get an error ‘Storage is temporarily not available’. 
Also, when i try to access it externally, i get an error ‘You are accessing the server from an untrusted domain.
Please contact your administrator. If you are an administrator of this instance, configure the “trusted_domains” setting in config/config.php. An example configuration is provided in config/config.sample.php or at the documentation.’
I am running a small website on the same ip. can that cause this problem?
