Default SparkleShare server

Has anyone setup a SparkleShare server on a server with ISPConfig 3?

Just wonder how it worked and there is any problem accessing the SparkleShare server with a windows client machine.

Default Re: SparkleShare server

If I well remember, SparkleShare server doesn't exist. On server side you need nothing else than a GIT server. Install it from repos and you're ok. Choose ssh as method for download/upload files from clients.
Of course, you'll have to manage users and folders on the server via line command. No integration with ISPConfig Web panel.
I don't know if SparkleShare windows client is finally out. Maybe yes, but I don't know if it's stable.
Good luck!

Well although the server is only git itself, i think he means the notification server, which he can host himself with the help of the node.js server.

I gave sparkleshare a shot, but I'm kind of disappointed atm. The syncs are taking time and also the recognition of new data takes like a minute compared to dropbox which is just few seconds.

Also the lack of smart http git support, which works with minor adjustments is still not the dream. Why smart http git? because its faster than the old git server itself. Even github is already offering smart http.

Adding to the above, the system is written in dot net or c# and is only running in other os with the help of mono. Would have liked to see it in c++ with eg. qt as frontend.

But of course you should make your own mind about the software.

Default ownCloud.org

Now I'm taking a look at ownCloud.org -- looks pretty good so far.

I'm really looking for something like a dropbox clone I can host (a family member is paying for dropbox which is kind of dumb when I've got like a TB of extra space) and ownCloud might be right.

Anyone have experience with ownCloud?

Well I also tried owncloud, in general I have to say that I like it, but it is still not useable in my opinion. The Windows client crashes on our computers, I guess the sync speed should be ok. But also the webui is only working partly on our server.

So its a nice product but still with a hugh amount of bugs...

If its only for your family? Why don't you just set up an ftp account for them?

I had problems as well. The web interface seems to have some hickups...
