Thank you. I think we're getting there, but it's still not working.
This is what I did:

- I'm using Dreamhost, so I don't have root access.
- Using the browser, as you suggested, I found the ones being used by
Dropbox and Box (thawte_Primary_Root_CA.cer and
GeoTrust_Global_CA.pem, respectively)
- I uploaded them via the owncloud's personal settings page
- I then tried opening the mount point directories, but still got the errors:

(for dropbox) {"app":"core","message":"Creating OC_Filestorage_Dropbox
storage failed","level":3,"time":1348153198}

(for box.com) {"app":"webdav client","message":"[CURL] Error while
making request: error setting certificate verify locations:\n  CAfile:
 CApath: \/etc\/ssl\/certs\n (error code:

Is there any way to get more information out of the log file?

Thank you for everything!
