Installing Owncloud 9 on Debian 8 (with Apache2 & MySQL)

This is a memo on how to install Owncloud 9 in Debian 8. Since the latest version of owncloud’s fork, nextcloud, is available, you may look at it as an alternative. I prefered to go with Owncloud since they provide Debian packages.

I will no longer maintain this post.
