Posted on  3/10/2016

I posted about Own-cloud 8.0 setup exactly 13 months ( 1 year one one month ) ago, Now Own-cloud development team announced the release of owncloud 9 yesterday , so let me again show you how to setup owncloud 9 community edition in your ubuntu server .

Whats New

1. Collaboration

Groups have now access to collaboration tools , such as global activity streams and version rollback, the ability to post comments and add tags . Users with file access may post comments on a file, with others being notified when this is done. more about collaboration tools

2. Federation

he concept behind Federation is to allow users to have shared files and folders even when using different servers.

3. Scalability

The ownCloud 9 release features a new storage API that allows for deeper integration with storage solutions and an updated sharing code, designed to handle more shares with more users.

Minor Enhancements
  • standalone updater
  • Code signed package

Install and Setup

Add owncloud repositories

For ubuntu 14.04 LTS

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add - 

echo 'deb /' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list 

For ubuntu 15.10

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add - 
echo 'deb /' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list 

Now lets install

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install owncloud 

and now , open http://YOURSERVERIP/owncloud go through normal setup instructions , its highly recommended to choose data directory outside webroot /var/www folder , owncloud by dfault use sqlite3 database but to get good performance use MySQL or PostgreSQL database .
