Yes I've seen this before.I just installed owncloud again using the video guide. I have done this install a couple times to test it out. I already have the plugin version installed and secured with SSL but I wanted a lighter install. When I installed with pkg, it installed v8.0.3, which isn't the latest version. So, I thought no big deal, ownCloud has it's own updater in the GUI. However, when I tried to run the updater app I get a message saying "Make sure that your web server has write access to the following files and directories:" and about a million files are listed. Has anyone ran into this when trying to use the Updater app in the GUI?
Go to the appropriate directory, which I believe is /usr/local/www/owncloud
and just change, en masse, the owners of the whole thing:
chown -R www:www *
that should probably do it. It might leave a few laying around, which you can change manually:
chown -R www:www file_in_question.dat
I've noticed that if you upgrade the owncloud pkg (either by portmaster from ports, or from pkg) itself, this is usually not a problem. When you try to do the upgrade inside of the owncloud GUI, you can run into this.
