The LinuxServer.io team brings you another container release featuring auto-update on startup, easy user mapping and community support. Find us for support at:
- IRC on freenode at
- Podcast covers everything to do with getting the most from your Linux Server plus a focus on all things Docker and containerisation!
OwnCloud provides universal access to your files via the web, your computer or your mobile devices — wherever you are. Mariadb 10.1 is built into the image. Built with php7, mariadb 10.1 and nginx 1.9.10. Owncloud.
docker create --name=owncloud -v <path to config>:/config \ -v <path to data>:/data -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid> \ -e TZ=<timezone> -e DB_PASS=<password> \ -p 443:443 linuxserver/owncloud
-p 433- the port(s)
-v /config- path to owncloud config files and database
-v /data- path for owncloud to store data
-e PGIDfor GroupID - see below for explanation
-e PUIDfor UserID - see below for explanation
-e TZtimezone information -eg Europe/London
-e DB_PASSowncloud database password - see below for explanation
User / Group Identifiers
Sometimes when using data volumes (
-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container. We avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user
PUID and group
PGID. Ensure the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.
In this instance
PGID=1001. To find yours use
id user as below:
$ id <dockeruser> uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)
Setting up the application
- initial webui startup, enter a username and password you want for your user in the setup screen.
- IMPORTANT, change the data folder to /data.
- IMPORTANT, because the database is built into the container, the database host is localhost and the database user and the database itself are both owncloud.
- If you do not set the DB_PASS variable, the database password will default to owncloud.
- IMPORTANT, if you use your own keys name them cert.key and cert.crt, and place them in config/keys folder.
- Shell access whilst the container is running:
docker exec -it container-name /bin/bash
- Upgrade owncloud from the webui,
Daily branch does not work, so just don't...
- To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:
docker logs -f owncloud
- dd.MM.yyyy: Initial Release.
