How To Install OwnCloud 1.7 On Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, OpenSUSE And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, OwnCloud is a web service that allows you to upload data via browser or by using a software client (similar to Dropbox, let’s say). ownCloud uses PHP and one of the following databases SQLite, MySQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL (you decide which db you install) and runs on all the operating systems that have support for at least one of this databases.

The latest version available is OwnCloud Client 1.7, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • oC7 Sharing: Handle new sharing options of ownCloud 7 correctly.
  • Added Selective sync: Ability to unselect server folders which are
  • excluded from syncing, plus GUI and setup GUI
  • Improved local change detection: consider file size, detect files
  • with ongoing changes and do not upload immediately
  • Improved HTTP request timeout handler: all successful requests reset the timeout counter
  • Improvements for syncing command line tool: netrc support, improved SSL support, non interactive mode
  • Added a socket based API to provide file management shells with status information about the sync status of files. That is a prerequisite for the overlay icons in the file managers.
  • Permission system: ownCloud 7 delivers file and folder permissions, added ability to deal with it for shared folders and more.
  • Ignore handling: Do not recurse into ignored or excluded directories
  • Major sync journal database improvements for more stability and performance
  • New library interface to sqlite3
  • Improve “resync handling” if errors occur
  • Blacklist improvements
  • Improved logging: more useful meta info, removed noise
