ownCloud integration

Postby mschering » Fri May 31, 2013 9:35 am

Just submitted an ownCloud app to their store!

I hope it will be approved soon. So that everybody can sync their Group-Office files to desktops and phones.

Just installed an Owncloud server on the same machine like GroupOffice 4.2 + the Group-Office App and it works out of the box :)

Owncloud does not mirror *all* of my files I have access to in GroupOffice, including shared folders, only data which I put into my ownCloud folder. However, most of my files are shared with others (and owned by an admin). We would like to sync all of them locally with the OwnCloud client.

What could be an easy patch to change the document root in the app's file groupoffice-owncloud / user_groupoffice.php around line 34:
'datadir'=>GO::config()->file_storage_path.'users/$user'.$this->_groupoffice_mount
Is there a groupoffice mount point for the whole tree, including shared folders?

No sorry, you can't include the shared folders as well.

We have extended the GroupOffice Owncloud module, so that it also mirrors shared folders, here is the fork:

See viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9451#p32588 for some more details.

An alternative to the GroupOffice owncloud plugin may be the external storge add-on.
Then any OC user can mount a Webdav storage, and thus can mount his/her GO files.

See https://doc.owncloud.org/server/7.0/adm ... n_gui.html

Maybe anyone who tested it could report here if it works well.

OwnCloud is slow and sometimes buggy. It tries to have a solution for everything but can do nothing realy good.
Read related bbs groups and you will leran a lot about sudden lost data.
I suggest the GO team should code a module for seafile integration.

Hi guys.

I integrate owncloud and it worked fine until I upgrade from version 8.23 to 9.
Now when I try to enable the app it gives an error:

Error: this app cannot be enabled because it makes the server unstable

Did anyone else come across with this issues?

We didn't test it with owncloud 9 yet. The API seems to change with every release and it's hard to maintain the plugin.

As owncloud and nextcloud allow to mount external storages per user, the best way to sync files would be to mount it to groupoffice/webdav. We've been a lot of testing with both GO 6.1 and 6.2 and unfortunately, the SabreDav authentication headers do not work properly. You can see the file tree in owncloud, but not open (and sync) any file. See our bug report here https://sourceforge.net/p/group-office/bugs/1725/
Any idea where to look at next? We also tried e.g. https://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread-134155.html

We had extended the owncloud App with Shared folders some years ago and still use it - but it is not 100% reliable and sometimes does not trigger a sync when a a file changes in GO. We really would like to move to owncloud external storage soon.
