Download ownCloud

Access your data

Save your files, folders, contacts, photo galleries, calendars and more on a server of your choice. Access this folder from your mobile device, desktop, or web browser. Access your data anytime, anywhere.

Sync your data

Keep your files, contacts, photo galleries, calendars, and more synced across your devices. One folder, two folders and more – you can always get the latest version of your files with the desktop and web client or mobile app of your choice.

Share your data

Share your data with others and give them access to your latest photo galleries, calendar, music, or anything else they should see. Share it publicly or privately. It’s your data, do what you want with it.


Has someone made a change to a shared file that you don’t like, or did you accidentally delete a section of the file that you need? When the versioning application is activated, ownCloud automatically saves old versions of files – you configure how much to save. To reset, simply hover over your file and revert to a previous version.


Do you want to make sure your files stay safe on the server? When the encryption application is activated, all files stored on the ownCloud server will be encrypted with your password. This is useful if you are storing your files on an untrusted storage outside of the ownCloud server. Just add an SSL connection and your files will be safe on the move and at rest.

Upload via drag & drop

Do you work on a computer and don’t want to install the entire ownCloud client? Simply log into ownCloud in a web browser and drag and drop your files from your desktop to the desired target directory in the web browser. They are automatically uploaded to the server.


Would you like to make ownCloud look like the rest of your website? Use the new functionality of the topic directory. Any style or image you add to this directory will be used in place of the standard ownCloud fonts, colors and icons.

Viewer for ODF files

Would you like to read files in open document format without downloading them? When you activate this application, you can click on any ODF formatted document (.odt, .odp, .ods) and read it in your web browser with no download required.

Application APIs

Would you like to add features and functions to ownCloud? New publicly defined APIs simplify the creation of applications for ownCloud considerably and enable add-on functions to form a stable integration point for future versions.

Migration and Backup

Do you have multiple ownCloud instances, possibly a primary and a backup installation? Now you can easily move your ownCloud user accounts between ownCloud instances and have a backup ready when needed.


Do you want to keep an eye on this important to-do list? With the task application you can easily synchronize your task lists with your own cloud instance.

Application storage

Would you like to add one of the existing applications to ownCloud? Simply activate a new application in the settings and it will be automatically downloaded and installed in your ownCloud instance.


Would you like to share your calendar with other ownCloud users? Activate the calendar application, open your calendar, select Sharing and select the users or groups you want. You can share your important calendar and important events in no time.

File notifications

Now you can notify others when a file is shared. This will make it quicker and easier to get started sharing those documents, home videos, and more.


Would you like more control over your shared photo gallery? Now you can specify the ownCloud photo directories, sort the order, share your galleries with any email address and control whether these photos can be shared with other people.

External storage

Do you want to have all of your Gdrive and Dropbox files in one place? Then this new experimental feature is something to see. When the external storage application is activated, you can mount your external storage as a folder in your ownCloud instance and access all of your files via one interface.


Would you like to integrate ownCloud with your existing syslog service? OwnCloud can now write to syslog log files as well as to the existing ownCloud log file.

LDAP / Active Directory

Would you like to manage ownCloud users from a directory? With ownCloud, administrators can now manage users and groups from their LDAP or AD instance.


To run ownCloud, the following must be installed on your web server: php5 (>= 5.3), php5-json php-xml php-mbstring php5-zip php5-gdAnd as optional dependencies: php5-sqlite (> = 3), curl, libcurl3 , libcurl3-dev, php5-curl, php-pdo

  • apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-json php-xml php-mbstring php5-zip php5-gd
  • apt-get install php5-sqlite curl libcurl3 libcurl3-dev php5-curl php-pdo

You don’t need WebDAV support from your web server (ie apaches mod_webdav) to access your ownCloud data via WebDAV. OwnCloud has an integrated WebDAV server.

  1. Download the server file.
  2. Extract ownCloud and copy it to your web server
    • tar -xjf path / to / downloaded / owncloud-xxxtar.bz2cp -r owncloud / path / to / your / webserver
  3. Defining the directory permissions: The owner of your web server must have the apps /, data / and config / directories in your ownCloud installation. You can do this by running the following command on the apps, data, and configuration directories:
    • chown -R www-data: www-data / path / to / your / owncloud / install / data Replace ‘www-data: www-data’ with the user and group of the owner of your web server. Please note that the data / directory is only created after the setup has been executed (see below) and is not present in the tarballs by default.
  4. Enable .htaccess and mod_rewrite when running Apache
    If you are running the Apache web server, it is recommended to enable .htaccess files as ownCloud uses them to improve security and allow the use of web finger. To enable .htaccess files, make sure that ‘AllowOverride’ is set to ‘All’ in the ‘Directory / var / www /’ section of your virtual hosts file. This is usually in / etc / apache2 / sites-enabled / 000-default. You should also run ‘a2enmod rewrite’ and ‘a2enmod headers’. Then restart apache: service apache2 restart (for Ubuntu systems). So that the maximum upload size can be configured, the .htaccess file in the owncloud folder must be made writable by the server.
  5. Follow the installation wizard
    Open your web browser and navigate to your ownCloud instance. If you are installing ownCloud on the same computer from which you are accessing the installation wizard, the URL is: https: // localhost / (or https: // localhost / owncloud For basic installations we recommend SQLite as it is easy to set up (ownCloud does it this for you. For larger installations you should use MySQL or PostgreSQL. Click on the advanced options to display the configuration options. You can enter administrator credentials and let ownCloud create your own database user or enter a pre-configured user. If you are not using Apache as a web server set the data directory to a location outside of the document root, see advanced installation settings for more information.
  6. Finished
    Log in and start ownCloud! For more information on configuring your own cloud, see Support center. If you want to use the Webfinger app and your ownCloud installation is not in the webroot, you have to manually link /var/www/.well-known to /path/to/your/owncloud/.well-known.
