ownCloud Information

ownCloud is a software suite that provides a location-independent storage area for data (cloud storage). The project was launched in January 2010 by KDE developer Frank Karlitschek to create a Free software alternative to commercial cloud providers. In contrast to commercial storage services, ownCloud can be installed on a private server at no additional cost.

ownCloud is an open source file sync and share solution that is as easy to use as Dropbox, but is hosted in your data center, on your servers, using your storage. With ownCloud, all your data is backed by your enterprise security, management tools, policies and procedures.

The project is based on PHP and a SQLite, MySQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL database, so ownCloud can run on all platforms that meet these requirements. ownCloud can be operated via a web interface and is thus not tied to a particular operating system. However, native applications, such as File Manager or Group Wares can interact with ownCloud via an interface and provide data and files locally.

Known Issue:
1. Including shared images in EditDoc documents only works as shared folder is a primary user folder (eg /files/[USER]/[SHARED FOLDER])
2. When opening EditDoc in Firefox, Chrome, eg a blank page with no WISIWYG menu. This is due to the webbrowser Content-Security-Policy (CSP). CSP is enabled in the lateste webbrowsers.
There are two solutions to this issue:
Option1. In firefox you can disable CSP. Open in address bar 'about:config' and search for 'security.csp.enable' and turn it off.
Option2. Global disable CSP on the owncloud webserver. This can be disabled by adding the custom_csp_policy in the owncloud config.php.

Place these lines in the $CONFIG Array section in the http://[YOURSERVER]/config/config.php file

$CONFIG = array (...
/* Custom CSP policy, changing this will overwrite the standard policy */
'custom_csp_policy' => "default-src 'self'; script-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline' 'unsafe-eval'; style-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline'; frame-src *; img-src *; font-src 'self' data:; media-src *",

Change Default TinyMCE Language

Language files can be downloaded from:

Download the language file and save in folder '<%owncloud_webroot%>/apps/editdoc/tinymce4/langs/'. In this example 'sv_SE.js'.
