OwnCloud 9 Update for ReadyNAS 4 and 5 platforms

owncloud_logo

As some already noted ownCloud 9.0.0 would complain about failing integrity checks on ReadyNAS 4 (x86 and Sparc) and ReadyNAS 5 platforms. This was due to a leftover fragment in my installer for the ownCloud 8 releases. This has been removed and the package has been fixed accordingly. So this error should be gone with this update:

The versions for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 and ARM) weren’t affected by this problem, so no updates there.

Some additional notes: OwnCloud is doing some really fancy things with the web servers .htaccess control file. Given the fact that the Apache version on ReadyNAS OS 4 is quite dated some of those tricks don’t work as expected which in turn prevents the totally pretty URLs from working on these platforms. Also, some requirements as to the underlying libraries of the operating system have been silently updated which led to some more problems on Sparc based ReadyNAS systems. To address those I had to built a new PHP add-on for Sparc which will be available shortly.
