Install ownCloud Server

ownCloud can be installed on Windows and Linux operating systems, and is available via packages, sources, or a one file php installer.


The .tar archive is the classic way of installing ownCloud server. It provides the server and all immediate 3rd party PHP libraries.

  1. Download Unix (.tar.bz2) or Windows (.zip) archive.
  2. Check package integrity using MD5 (Unix / Windows) or SHA256 (Unix / Windows)
  3. Verify the authenticity via PGP (Unix /Windows). The ownCloud GPG key is here.
  4. Follow the ownCloud Admin Manuals’ installation chapter


The Web Installer is the easiest way for novice users to install ownCloud on their web space. It checks the dependencies, downloads the newest ownCloud from the official server, unpacks it with the right permissions and the right user account. Finally, you will be redirected to the ownCloud installer.
