I was messing around with ownCloud the other day and seem to have broken it–it says “File not found” when i go to the /cloud page. I host two domains on this address and am wondering what i must do regarding SSL certificates and email backups if i were to re-create the VM.
Thanks in advance, this project is pretty great!
I just went through this myself recently, and it turned out the fix was pretty simple (technically speaking).
Stop the mailinabox on broken service
Spin up a new server with the default config and perform required updates.
Stop the mailinabox service on new server
Tar up the /home/user-data folder, ensuring you use the -p flag for permissions, and move the data to the new server where you will untar it again ensuring you maintain permissions (root required). Move untared files to the /home/user-data folder on the new server.
Swap around IP addresses if required to new server
This will give you a clean server with your old server data and config. All the data you need is contained in the /home/user-data folder. Now, understand I am running mine on the Amazon EC2 cloud, so it was easy for me to spin up a new server to do this and swap around the static ip I had assigned.
In the end this should ensure you have a clean build. Hope this helps.
I tried something similar initially to clean up the mess I had made, the issue is that the installer script would still see the existing packages and not reinstall them or clean up the mess. Add to that the fact that I knew I had tweaked a few things outside the norm, I decided a clean install was best.
