>Why aren't you hosting an owncloud server yet?
>needing a cloud at all
Solution for a non-existant problem. I'd like a WebDAV server tho, I believe you can mount it as a folder on Android phones, then, for example, play music from it using your favorite player.
I have it.
I rarely use it.
At first I thought I'd be able to make a floating library for media/music/software that i can access easily, but thus far i've only used it once to throw all files on there.
The rest -like small documents and screenshots- have been going over all three other competitors i.e. onedrive, google drive and dropbox.
you can encrypt the files, you can move to a company you trust.
but besides this, you can also self host if you are that concerned. just taking the bill of electricity and other fees as a necessary expense.
either way, much better than trusting a proprietary service like dropbox, onedrive, etc.
so you don't use owncloud for anything but syncing files?
you sure? syncthing is using ~40M ram on my desktop atm, i don't have it on my vps as syncthing is serverless and i have no need to store files there
My dual processor PowerMac G5 server consumes around $10/month in electricity, modern hardware should do much better, especially if you're not a dumbass and build a server instead of using your desktop as one.
Because they dropped Windows support, because "it was too difficult for us to support". Which is ironic, considering there are how many different linux distros and only ~5 versions of Windows to support.
The real irony, is if you read the bug reports for the specific issues that caused OwnCloud to abandon Windows .... people posted fixes to them years ago, and they never bothered to implement them.
Solar FTW. I pay ~$20/month for running a 20+ drive file server and a hyperV lab and 10 computers and AC (ran 24/7).
And I was paying nearly $600/month because of it (a large part, due to the AC). Within 2 years, it has already paid for itself. Literally.
What's your excuse?
>different linux distros
>Package managers with essentially the same workflow
>Same packages get installed
>Every major distro supports all the major DEs
They're all basically the same
did'n work, i don't remember why. And there were a message "SQLite is not great for heavy cloud"
"invalid username/password" or something like this. I never set any password, and the admin pwrd didn't work.
Installation fine, but unknown error after
Because it has always been unstable as fuck and breaks every time I did an update through the official updater.
I actually have an ownCloud install on a VPS that was broken by an update. Eventually I'll get around to finding a non-shit ownCloud replacement.
I'll take a look at Seafile.
One I was looking at was Pydio. Probably overkill for my needs, but appeared to be stable for the little amount of time I used it. There wasn't a working sync client for my OS at the time, so despite everything else it was a complete non-starter. Now there's a sync client, so there's another thing to throw on the list of solutions to try.
>Why is delta sync good again?
Son you might be retarded, you put in your own comment why delta sync is good.
>P2P is the way of the future.
pretty much this but Server/client still makes sense in many cases
>considering there are how many different linux distros and only ~5 versions of Windows to support.
All those DEs and Distros use the same interface to communicate so you actually just need to add extra stuff in very rare edge cases
>people posted fixes to them years ago, and they never bothered to implement them.
Maybe those people should have submitted code patches instead of whatever they did.
>>pay hugepile $$$ for electricity, pay for repairs and waste time for maintain
$60 a year for electricity. For that I get a seedbox, www server, owncloud instance, nested raid nas and anything else I want to virtualize. Hard to beat.
>>instead of using 3d party infrastructure for free
I have a free aws instance, but its so limited in many ways. It has its benefits, but I like my own. Plus its free only for a year.
Wait. This was a bait.
