Cloud server on OSMC

Hi, I have OSMC installed on Rpi2 and I’m want to know it’s simple solution to install some cloud on it (file server that I could manage from anywhere)? Is owncloud and apache is only solution ?

it is but a heavy option there are better once under the howto section here on the forum

Hi, thanks for answer. I look at titles on How To sections and I don’t find any useful thing. Can You point me what topic is about cloud server on osmc ?

well if your arent deadset on having owncloud may i suggest syncthing less intrusive and very light suitable for OSMC and it has a howto in the howto thread.

check that thread out and we can pick it up from there.

thanks for helping me but can You show me link of that threat on How To ?

ask question and support on that thread for syncthing if you settle on using it.

Thank You very much, I will compare that Synchthing and Owncloud :slight_smile:

A post was merged into an existing topic: [HowTo] Install and use SyncThing on OSMC

i like and use Resilo Sync 2.0.93. (newer versions kill cpu).
Inside nano, enter the following lines:

deb wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src wheezy main contrib non-free

then via usual command line enter:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install btsync

Cheers, Geoff.

isnt that bitorrent sync ? ie proprietary software ? if so its limited to x amount of clients while syncthing has no limitations or restrictions.

yes, it is proprietary software. limits of free version are changing permissions of users. I did see an opensource version of similar tech but can’t recall name. Something like, but not freesync, cloudsync. I ended up purchasing full version as i share files across a few OSMC devices, and useful to be able to modify permissions.

useless to me, im all about opensource :slight_smile:
