ownCloud - Never stops loading when finishing setup

Tue May 15, 2018 6:53 am

Model: Raspberry Pi 3 model B+
OS: Raspbian Stretch
Target disk for data storage: Netgear readyNAS (NTFS, fstab mounted) with share for ownCloud and www-data as owner on mount

I've been following a guide (https://www.avoiderrors.net/owncloud-10 ... n-stretch/) for installing and setting up ownCloud on my Pi. I've been following every step and doing exactly what the guide says.
It all goes well until the very last step where I fill out the forms for setting up ownCloud via the browser, seemingly correct inputs and no errors, and when i click the finish button it just loads forever. The browser also indicates that the page is loading and this goes on forever.

Tables in the ownCloud database on the Pi gets created so something is happening, but it never seems to create the admin user as the oc_users table is empty no matter how long I wait. The Pi also seems to slow down drastically when doing this as it takes forever to perform simple and otherwise instant tasks like ls, rmdir, rm, etc...

The target disk for data storage as filled in in the ownCloud wizard data directory path is a NAS disk mounted with www-data (uid/guid 33) as owner and chmoded with 777. I know for a fact that the www-data user has the right privileges to the disk since I've overcome permission issues before as well as the correct mysql credentials. Ive tried ownCloud version 10.0.3/8 and 9.1.8 with the same result.

Has anybody encountered this issue before or have any clue what this is all about?

I am having the same issue. I've accessed the OwnCloud server from a Mac and the device itself, entering in an Admin Name/Password and then the directory of an external drive I've attached.

The directions I'm following are here:

If anyone has had luck on how to active this, meaning gaining graphical access to the OwnCloud Server, please let me know, otherwise mine is STILL spinning. :-(

Two heads are better than one, unless one's a goat head.

I second NextCloudpi, very similar to ownCloud but easier to setup.
