I know this is off topic but I know somebody will be able to help. I have installed own-cloud on my Ubuntu server and it works great, I have configured remote access and it all works well.
I have 1TB of media that I want to put into own-cloud, obviously uploading it all through the client is not practical. I have found the own-cloud data directory (var/lib/owncloud/data) but cannot copy files to it as I dont have the right to access it. My question is this, is there a way to change the permissions and then dump the data in there, my second question is will owncloud then recognize that data is there? My server has no GUI and I just shh in.
