The installation using the ownCloud zip or tarball is the most common option and is best for production environments. They contain all supported community and enterprise apps, so upgrading to Enterprise only requires a licence key. Aimed at experienced administrators, these packages offer the most customizable installation method.
Minimal server package
Strictly the bare ownCloud server with required components. Great for updating the core without overwriting apps that you would like to keep in their current state. Install the complete bundle as shown above to get all available apps and extensions as well as an easy Enterprise trial.
If you already are “dockerized”, checkout the ownCloud Server Docker Image maintained by ownCloud. The image is aimed at experienced admins who want to benefit from the Docker environment.
Linux Distribution Packages
ownCloud provides ready-to-deploy packages for popular Linux distributions such as Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, RedHat Enterprise Linux, CentOS and openSUSE.
The appliance is the easiest way to get ownCloud up and running and is best for non-technical users. It is built on UCS (“Univention Corporate Server”) and is fully set up and configured with a secure connection and the ownCloud Proxy app. You can install VirtualBox, download our OVA file and load it up.
