Installing Owncloud 7 on QNAP hardware – upgrade from version 6

6. Fix permissions

As with most embedded Linux distros, the Apache user never the same, and often cannot be used by the root account, which is the case of QNAP. In order to make things run smoothly, all files need to be attributed to the Apache account. To to so, use the following command:

chown -R httpdusr *

If something is wrong with user permissions, when you try to login, most text and all icons will get garbled.

7. Use it

Otherwise, this is it. You’ll get a fully funcional Owncloud install ready for use.
