ownCloud update, can it be done?


#1

Is it possible to upgrade the bundled owncloud to the newest version, currently with a new install of mailinabox it says its version 13.0.6 and a new version 14.0.4 is available…

Thanks in advance.


#2

I would avoid manually updating any one component of MIAB and wait for Josh to release a new update.


#3

Okay, thats a shame i’d have to find an alternative to this then, hosting it for a few that doesnt appreciate the old version and the client warnings about its an unsupported version, proceed at own risk :-/


#4

According to NextCloud’s system requirements, 14 requires Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04 recommended. So until the MIAB transition to 18.04, NextCloud will probably stay where it is.


#5

That is incorrect. There is already a version of MIAB that is using Ubuntu LTS 18.04, you just have to download the branch for Ubuntu bionic. Not sure if it magically has the latest and greatest NextCloud, but I would definitely check it out:

$ git clone --depth=1 --single-branch -b ubuntu_bionic https://github.com/mail-in-a-box/mailinabox
$ cd mailinabox
# bash setup/start.sh

However, I don’t believe this is the “main” branch, but I believe it is at least somewhat officially supported.
