  • We're using the postgres package not the mysql package. If you want to muck around in the database: su - www-data and then psql owncloud
  • We're authenticating using the login-service (web api). User accounts are created on the fly.
  • The admin username and password are in keyringer. However, try to avoid logging in as the admin, and if you change any configuration options, /etc/owncloud/config.php may get overwritten (which contains our custom user backend). A copy should be available at /etc/owncloud/config.php.bak
  • A 5GB per user quota is set. This is configured by logging in as admin and then clicking to administer users. Quotas can be changed on a per user basis.
