Is this ok [y/N]:

Step 3. Create new MySQL database and user

Now we need to create new MySQL user and database for Owncloud.

[root@fedora tmp]# mysql -u root -p
Enter password: 
Welcome to the MariaDB monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MariaDB connection id is 10
Server version: 10.1.25-MariaDB MariaDB Server

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE USER owncloud@localhost IDENTIFIED BY '12345';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON owncloud.* TO owncloud@localhost IDENTIFIED BY '12345';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

MariaDB [(none)]> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

MariaDB [(none)]> EXIT;
Bye

Step 4. Download Owncloud package

Now we need to download the latest Owncloud 10 package from the official website. You may check the latest version of Owncloud from this page.

cd /tmp
wget https://download.owncloud.org/community/owncloud-10.0.2.tar.bz2

Step 5. Extract Owncloud package

Once the download completed, we need to extract it and change the permission to it.

tar -xvf owncloud-10.0.2.tar.bz2

Change permission

chown -R apache.apache owncloud
chmod -R 755 owncloud

Now move the owncloud directory to /var/www/html

mv owncloud /var/www/html

Now restart Apache

systemctl restart httpd

Step 6. Configure Owncloud via web browser

Open web browser from other computer and then type the Ip address of the Fedora Server as follow
