  • OwnCloud is a web service that provides hosted services including CalDAV (calendar), WebDAV (Files), and CardDAV (address book) services.

    Because OwnCloud provides the services which are consumed by the client PC, it is generally installed on a server, although some do run OwnCloud locally.

    Since you installed OwnCloud on your PC, you automatically also installed (due to OwnCloud dependencies) the Apache server, which is probably already running on your computer.

    If you decide that you want to keep OwnCloud running on your local pc, you should be able to access it through your browser at this url: http://localhost/owncloud

    Files of interest if you decide to keep and configure the software:



    apt-file list owncloud
