Sync Shared Owncloud folder and content to own machine using the OwnCloud client sync tool.

ownCloud - Feb 18 2013
Question:Dear Owncloud community,
Is it possible to sync a shared folder and it's content?
E.g. a user shared a folder and other users can sync this automatically to their own laptop using the Owncloud cient?


I thought I found the answer to my question here:

But after applying this this change / solution it still doesn't sync the contents from the shared folder to my own machine.

Any further help is apprieciated!

Answer:I think it would depend a little on your specific configuration of the ownCloud client (portable or workstation), folder and what OS your ownCloud is installed on and the folder structure.


Linux OS (distro shouldn't matter)

Install Path:

[path] = the path where your Linux distro placed ownCloud

[user] = the username you created during the configuration process

[clientsync] = the folder name created when utilizing a thick client and taking the default settings

You will have other users that are in the same directory tree. Configure your username to belong to the same group that runs ownCloud (i.e.: www-data) and you can navigate the directory tree of the other users. Make note of the directory that you would like to replicate on your remote system. [i.e.: /[path]/ownCloud/[user2]/files/pictures

Navigate to your directory that you synchronize within ownCloud:

Then use the command:
ln -s /[path]/ownCloud/[user2]/files/pictures ./user2-pictures

This will create a symbolic link within your "clientsync" folder that is kept synchronized on your client. That should make it so you have all the information that you have in your sync folder available as well as the other user's information as well.
