Content and Overview

This course is a quick and informative how-to that will help you bypass several bottlenecks in the process of ownCloud installation and configuration.

In this course, I will show you how simple it is to implement your own secure cloud services bundle: a file storage, note keeper, contacts storage, calendar and more. You can’t underestimate the importance and value of keeping your private files and data on the hardware you and only you have access to and control over. And this course will show you how all this can be done in a day, as long as you have a Linux server ready at your disposal. We will go through the process of installing the ownCloud server software to our private dedicated server hardware with LAMP stack being preconfigured on it. 

This course is for anyone who wishes to set up their own ownCloud server by means of several hours. You will need a minimum experience of connecting to your server via the SSH or working directly with your server’s command console and typing the commands into the Linux command line. All the rest will be discussed in the course, including the installation process, Apache secure connection setup and database creation and configuration process and more.
