Running ownCloud3 On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10
This tutorial shows how you can install and run ownCloud3 on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced “engine x”) + MySQL + PHP).
ownCloud enables universal access to files through the widely
implemented WebDAV standard, providing a platform to easily view and
sync contacts, calendars and bookmarks across devices while supporting
sharing, viewing and editing via the web interface. It offers the
ease-of-use of Dropbox and box.net without vendor lock in. ownCloud
users can run its file sync and share services on their own hardware.
nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and
delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
