I’m not a developer, I’m a writer. And not even a tech writer anymore. So I just barely understand the basics. I have looked at the wiki and not been able to figure out how to, if I can, install OwnCloud to use DreamObjects as a replacement for Dropbox.
At http://wiki.dreamhost.com/OwnCloud it tells me how to install OwnCloud. But frankly, I’m getting stuck on step two. What is the “proper domain directory”? Am I putting OwnCloud on it’s own subdomain? In a directory on my main domain? Does it matter where I install?
From there, I’m not even sure I’ll understand the rest of the instructions for recommended settings. I presume these are in the OwnCloud program and I should be able to locate them while I’m running it.
Then I have to somehow connect OwnCloud to DreamObjects. Is this going to be anything like Dropbox?
Admittedly, I’m extremely new to DreamObjects. I’m not even sure how it works yet.
So, anyone up for the challenge of trying to explain this for someone who really needs some serious help in figuring out if this is a project worth trying? Should I wait until DreamHost puts together a one-click install for OwnCloud and DreamObjects? How likely is that to actually happen?
Thanks for reading, thanks more to anyone who responds…
