lighttpd and ownCloud

Post by Joseph_Lin »

I spent two days, trying to use ownCloud on DietPi 6.1 without success.
I cannot use Apache2 or Ngnix because they will not start web service.
If I use lighttpd, then owncloud will not allow me to use client app on windows. It shows something like the attached picture.
I then spent hours looking for answer and found ownCloud does not support lighttpd!
I verified this with a Virtual Machine build and the result is the same.
Any solution?

Hi, and thanks for your report:
- There seem to be a deeper configuration/system issue, as Nginx and Apache2 both do not start.
- Did you test this on fresh DietPi installation?
- Can you in case provide the output of:
- systemctl status apache2
- systemctl status nginx
- /var/log/apache2/error.log
- /var/log/nginx/error.log

- and copy&paste of the installation process, running dietpi-software
depending on webserver you are testing. Note to install just one at a time.

ownCloud and Nextcloud do not officially support, because, their webdav backend, notes years ago, that Lighttpd does not fully support all their features. But noone from ownCloud/Nextcloud did ever validate/recheck this. We however did intensive tests with Lighttpd ownCloud/Nextcloud and webdav (via desktop and mobile clients) and never faced any issues.
So your issue seems to be deeper nature. Could you please provide:
- systemctl status lighttpd
- systemctl status php7.0-fpm
- Nextcloud log
/var/log/lighttpd error log
(don't know exact name at the moment ;).
