 +====== OwnCloud ======
 +**OwnCloud** is an open-source alternative to '​cloud'​ storage things like [[DropBox]],​ as well as web-app things like calendars and addressbooks,​ and even Google Docs. It's probably best to go with the //​completely//​ free alternative called [[NextCloud]],​ but that's not availible on my NAS :|
 +===== Add-ons =====
 +==== Calendar ====
 +Using **[[CalDAV]]** on Android things sync just fine with the link procided in ownCloud.
 +But with **[[Thunderbird#​Lightning]]** you need to go through all the different calendars and get individual links. A bit of a pain!
 +==== Contacts ====
 +Having trouble importing contacts from one ownCloud to NextCloud. This guy seems to have a solution down the bottom of this thread, just renaming some things: https://​​nextcloud/​contacts/​issues/​433
 +==== QNAP ====
 +QNAP NASes don't seem to like installing add-ons through ownCloud >:| The probablem being that the version is stuck on **8**-something,​ whereas the current OwnCloud version is **10**-something! Both the deleted methods below didn't actually work.
 +Options are:
 +  * Use old versions of the add-ons found here: [[git>​owncloudarchive]] (insecure)
 +  * Use 3rd-party repo [[https://​​|qnapclub]] (''​https://​​en/​repo.xml''​),​ which had up-t%%o-%%date versions of NextCloud and ownCloud. Not sure how to get SSL set-up for them yet. Nor can I find the NextCloud directory after it installed, even thoug hit works. MYSTERIOUS.
 +<​del>​So you have to manually download them and place them in the ''​apps''​ directory, or make a secondary directory if you want to keep them seperate (FIXME).</​del>​
 +<​del>​But if you add these lines to your ''​config.php''​ it should be fixed.
 +nbjp the ''​appstoreurl''​ is different than in the one in ''​config.php.sample''​.
 +  '​appstoreenabled'​ => true,
 +  '​appstoreurl'​ => '​https://​​api/​v0',​
 +===== Upgrading =====
 +The trouble-free-est way to upgrade seems to be to [[SSH]] into the server, then run ''​php occ upgrade''​ from the directory owncloud'​s installed to.
 +To upgrade to a new version (IE 9 > 10) you have to download and reinstall first, retaining the ''​data''​ and ''​config''​ directories. My process is:
 +  * ''​wget [latest version]''​ to download latest version.
 +  * ''​mv [owncloud dir] [owncloud dir]-backup''​ to rename.
 +  * ''​tar xvjf [latest version archive]''​ to extract archive.
 +  * ''​cp -avr [owncloud dir]-backup/​config [owncloud dir]/​config''​\\ ''​cp -avr [owncloud dir]-backup/​data [owncloud dir]/​data''​ to copy over data and configuation stuffs.
 +  * ''​cd [owncloud dir]''​ and ''​php occ upgrade''​
