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.
