After spending 10 Hours configuring owncloud on Fedora 24 (because of NO documentation and proper tutorial), I finally got OwnCloud up and running perfectly.

My owncloud configuration files are in

/usr/share/owncloud and

/etc/owncloud and my data is stored in


When I upload something via SSH with curl or wget command on my server and move it to files directory, this files doesn't show up in owncloud web interface!

Any help would be great. Thanks

UPDATE1: when I

cd /home/owncloud/ocdata/root/files/Documents and

ls -lha

I get the following

drwxr-xr-x. 2 apache apache 4.0K Jul 22 17:50 .
drwxr-xr-x. 4 apache apache 4.0K Jul 22 17:45 ..
-rw-r--r--. 1 apache apache  36K Jul 22 16:59 Example.odt
-rwxrwxrwx. 1 apache apache 683M Jul 22 17:02 test.rar

my problem is, test.rar won't show up in owncloud web interface but Example.odt Does show up!

  • Did you check the ownership and the permissions of the files after you move them to their final resting place ? Do they differ from the files you can see ?

Since OC 9.0(?) Filesystem checks are disabled by default for more performance.

Check and maybe change your config.php to

'filesystem_check_changes' => 1,



This could be because you need to refresh the ocdata file. Procedure below:

  • First cd into the occ folder, which can be found with:

    find / -name "occ" 2>/dev/null

  • Then:

    sudo -u www-data php occ files:scan --all
