The ownCloud docker image on top of CentOS 7.


docker pull dockingbay/centos-owncloud:latest

Usually you'll want to pull some specific tag instead of latest. See
available centos-owncloud tags.


  • Prepare a place for ownCloud volumes on the host machine.

      mkdir -p /var/lib/owncloud/{config,data,postgresql}
  • Label the directories to make SELinux happy.

      chcon -R -t svirt_sandbox_file_t /var/lib/owncloud/data
      chcon -R -t svirt_sandbox_file_t /var/lib/owncloud/config
      chcon -R -t docker_var_lib_t     /var/lib/owncloud/pgsql

    On a production system you'll want to run this instead, to make the
    labels permanent:

      semanage fcontext -a -t svirt_sandbox_file_t /var/lib/owncloud/data(/.*)?
      semanage fcontext -a -t svirt_sandbox_file_t /var/lib/owncloud/config(/.*)?
      semanage fcontext -a -t docker_var_lib_t /var/lib/owncloud/pgsql(/.*)?
      restorecon -Rv /var/lib/owncloud
  • Run ownCloud docker container.

      docker run -p 8000:80 \
          -v /var/lib/owncloud/config:/var/www/html/owncloud/config
          -v /var/lib/owncloud/data:/var/www/html/owncloud/data
          -v /var/lib/owncloud/pgsql:/var/lib/pgsql

    This will bind ownCloud to port 8000. This is ok for testing, but
    for real use you'll want to put a reverse proxy in front of it and
    make the reverse proxy accessible only through HTTPS.

  • To increase security for real use, the ownCloud installation wizard
    will not be used (someone else could use the wizard before you
    would). Instead, ownCloud will autoinstall itself. Give it a moment
    to do so. The DB and admin passwords will be autogenerated, and you
    will find them in /var/lib/owncloud/config/initrc. Move that file
    out of that directory and put it somewhere safe.

  • Point your browser to host (and port) where you're running
    ownCloud. If you're just testing it on your workstation and
    following these steps, the URL is http://localhost:8000.

  • Log into ownCloud with the admin password that was generated to the
    initrc file. You can now change the admin password to something
    else. You're running ownCloud now, congrats!


  • Because the apps directory contains apps both from the ownCloud
    RPM and apps that can be downloaded after installation, there's not
    really a straightforward solution to allow persistence of the
    downloaded apps and updating the apps that come with the RPM (= apps
    that come with the ownCloud docker image). Currently the apps
    directory is not exported as a volume, which means that all changes
    there are lost between updates of the docker image. If you just use
    the ownCloud apps which come with the RPM, you don't need to worry
    about this.

  • The image currently doesn't support serving HTTPS straight from the
    Docker container. Always use a reverse proxy.

  • Backup the exported volume directories between image updates.
