OwnCloud: You don't have permission to upload or create files here

  • Answered
I've just installed OwnCloud but I can't upload any files. The upload button is missing, and I tried to drag a files into the app's window but then it appears this error: "You don't have permission to upload or create files here".

I've reading the OwnCloud documentation and I think that maybe it has something to do with this initial configuration that I couldn't set because this options never appeared to me:

Or maybe it's related to some sharing configuration?

Thanks a lot for the help.


Apologies for the confusion with Owncloud. The problem is that WEBDAV (which allows you to remotely manage files by mounting a drive; also called Web Disk) is unfortunately not permitted on our shared server systems. If you were to upgrade to a VPS or dedicated server solution, then you would be able to use Owncloud with our hosting service.

We're sorry for not immediately indicating that Webdav was not available for your use so that you could get your application installed and functional.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.
