I've just installed owncloud 4.5 beta 4 on my Debian server with mysql 5.5 and
I'm running it under Apache 2.4 with php5-fpm.
After running the configuration wizard and going to the Settings - Admin section,
I'm presented with the following message:
Your data directory and your files are probably accessible from the internet. The
.htaccess file that ownCloud provides is not working. We strongly suggest that
you configure your webserver in a way that the data directory is no longer
accessible or you move the data directory outside the webserver document root."
What I don't get is that apparently .htaccess shouldn't be working, since it is
apache it's running under.
According to a post on forum.owncloud.org the warning will go away when I move
the data directory away from /var/www/(owncloud) though.
Is that correct (and therefor the warning msg misleading)? If not correct, what
do I need to do so that .htaccess does work?
Furthermore I've changed the permissions on the owncloud directory as follows:
- chmod -R o-rwx owncloud
- chown -R root:www-data owncloud
- chown -R www-data:www-data owncloud/apps
- chown -R www-data:www-data owncloud/config
- chown -R www-data:www-data owncloud/data
Now only the owncloud/data directory (and subdirectories) are world-readable,
but I'm not brave enough to remove that ;-)
I haven't moved the data directory yet, but will do so later.
What do I have to do, apart from changing the value in config.php to make it work
