Owncloud installation failed


Hi to all !

I try to install owncloud via the software-center. Unfortunately the installation fails with die following error-message:

Task completed with errors S95nethserver-owncloud-conf-ldap #14 (exit status 256)
Template /var/www/html/owncloud/apps/user_ldap/appinfo/register_command.php #15 (exit status 1)expansion of /var/www/html/owncloud/apps/user_ldap/appinfo/register_command.php failed

I use:
System version: NethServer release 6.7 (final)
Kernel release : 2.6.32-573.12.1.el6.x86_64

Please tell me, what is to do to solve that problem.

Thank you in advance and best Greetings from Germany !

Hi, have you installed Nethserver-Directory module first?

(Alessio Fattorini) #3

It should be a dependency of nethserver-owncloud
Something about the first configuration was broken. Probably remove and reinstall everything is a quick solution: db, directory and packages



thank you for the fast replays. I deinstalled the most services except

Base , Development tools, DNS and DHCP server, E-mail Server, MSQL server, Networking tools, System administration tools, Web server, Roundcube

Than I tried again to install nethserver-owncloud and got another error message:

Task completed with errors S95nethserver-owncloud-conf-ldap #14 (exit status 256)
Template /var/www/html/owncloud/apps/user_ldap/appinfo/register_command.php #15 (exit status 1)
expansion of /var/www/html/owncloud/apps/user_ldap/appinfo/register_command.php failed

Please let my explain, that I use DNS and DHCP on my firewall (IFfire), so I did not configure nethservers’s DNS- and DHCP-Services.

Is there any chance to solve that problem ? If not, how can I backup the configuration and use it after a new installation ?

Wishing a happy weekende …

Best regards from Telekomiker !

Lets arrange teamviewer session, i need to catch log files

(Alessio Fattorini) #10

Slapd is handled by upstart so you should use;
start slapd

(Artem Fedai) #11

it is on NS 7 :slight_smile: but there is still backward compatibility with service (sysinit)

@telekomiker have you solved the issue ?


Hi Artem,

I was some days busy on my job, sorry.

Unfortunately the problem is any longer. In addition I started the recommended update (couse glibc and so on) and I got many errot messages:

Task completed with errors
S91nethserver-directory-init-admin #89 (exit status 28416)
S97nethserver-mail-update-admin #92 (exit status 28416)

S20group-modify-unix #146 (exit status 28416)
S30nethserver-mail-account-update #147 (exit status 28416)

so that I don’t restart the installation owncloud after that.

Your offer to look for yourself via a teamviewer session is heavily welcome
