ownCloud + large backups

February 11, 2013 — Leave a comment

A Drupal site gets big after a while, and none of my clients that use it have backups under 2GB. That becomes a problem, since I need to get the backups to them somehow. I had moved them over to an ownCloud instance I had, but I moved it and haven’t set up a new one yet.

Well, I decided to see how easy the web installer script was for ownCloud, and I am pleased with the result: now I have a small instance on my clients web server, and can send my contact there a link to their backups, and the link itself will expire soon. Killer use case, and it was easier to install than WordPress (since it uses SQLite). ^_^
