ownCloud in a box
ownCloud in a box packages ownCloud as an appliance, so you can easily run it in a virtual environment, as a live system or install it on a disk.
Run the appliance, go to http://[yourservername], and follow the instructions there.
Also remember to change the root password of the system after the appliance has booted.
One note about the versioning of the appliance: The major version of the appliance follows the major version of ownCloud. The minor versions are not directly related. See the release notes for what exact minor version is included in the appliance.
Downloads are no longer available for this appliance, as it is based on an OS version that we no longer support.
You can clone the appliance, then upgrade and build with a current OS version.
This is the release of the new major version of ownCloud. ownCloud in a box directly went to ownCloud 7.0.1.
If you see an error about WebDAV not working in the web interface, try if ownCloud still works. The error is shown incorrectly in some situations, for example when running ownCloud in SUSE Studio Testdrive.
The appliance doesn’t come with a preconfigured user anymore (it used to be admin/owncloud42). ownCloud will ask for a user name and password on first login now. This user will become the admin user.
