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.
Note: Since the initial writing of this memo (which was started in August 2016 and remained un-pusblished until now), I changed my mind on my web server configuration: I switched from the Apache2 web server to Nginx, deleted the Owncloud instance and installed Pydio. I will no longer maintain this post.
This post mainly follows this following how-to: https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/owncloud_9-installation-on-debian_8/
In this post we will backup the LUKS header to avoid any disaster later on…
When you have several calendars opened in Lightning, it’s a bit of a pain to double check everytime that the correct one is selected… If you have the same issue, here is the solution :

In this article, we will install Debian with a full disk encryption.
So it all started from a simple need, really: being able to share files on my local network. Usually for this type of needs, you buy a NAS, and that’s it. But then you add in a bit of privacy concerns, the will NOT to put all your eggs in the same basket, and you end up looking at buying a Synology NAS. Since I had an old PC lying around, I looked at the project call “XPEnology“, which is basically a “grey area fork” of the synology DSM software (it’s not entirely clear whether you can do that according the licence).
And while Xpenology provided a nice way to test the software and a very convenient experience, I ended up with a problem in one of the disk array, and instead of rebuilding the whole thing again (which was running on an old netbook at the time), I decided that I needed something more reliable.
Excited by the “cloud” possibilities present in the DSM software, I started to look at the various possibilities for self hosted “cloud”. To add sugar on the cake, I wanted to try to use FOSS bricks to replace DSM.
