Fresh owncloud install, worked for a little then broke

Postby caffewmilk » Sat Apr 09, 2016 8:42 pm


I'm new here and new to using owncloud. I have already looked through the pinned "Known issues" thread.

Here is what happened:
1. I followed some online instructions on installing & configuring owncloud. Everything went well as far as that.
2. Using another computer on my network, I browsed to the owncloud server and was able to create the admin user and enter the database information. Shortly after, I was looking through the owncloud interface. So everything looked and worked great.
3. A few minutes later, after closing the browsing session, I tried to go back in and the only that displays on the browser is black page white page.
4. I rebooted the server thinking that apache service might have stopped running. Tried again and same blank page came up.
5. Interestingly, I tried from a different computer and received the familiar 'Untrusted Connection' in Firefox, added the exception as done on the previous computer, and instead of being greeted by the login screen, the blank page showed up again.

ownCloud version (see ownCloud admin page): can't see admin page so I got the version by looking at the installed package name: 8.1.6
Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install: does not apply

This should not happen. There were some things fixed:
But there is probably not everything fixed, I had some problems connecting to the database:
If you already have a config/config.php, you can try to specify the socket to connect to your database:

Code: Select all

  'dbhost' => 'localhost:/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock',

It is possible that the other errors a triggered by this. If not, you can try and track them individually, like

How did you install it? Download zip-file, extract it, ...?
