This is a continuation of thread I started inside another unrelated thread at http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67307 I uninstalled and reinstalled the Windows client but I got the same message as before: Failed to connect to OwnCloud at http://spocku/owncloud/status.php - server replied: Service Unavailable Back on the server side, I notice that when I try to login to Owncloud there via localhost/owncloud, I get message: Data directory ([email protected] Please change the permissions to 0770 so that the directory cannot be listed by other users. I have changed permissions to the data directory in above message to 0770 and even to 777 but that made no difference. I did realize that I might have skipped a couple of steps in the instructions in the install davfs2 section 4. This is because when I try to mount owncloud/, after entering username and password, I get message: /sbin/mount.davfs: Mounting failed. 503 Service Unavailable I did the rest of the steps in that section but i'm guessing my problem is the above message and the fact that owncloud/ didn't mount. At this point I'm wondering if it would be better if I started over and tried to follow instructions more closely? How would I do that if that's what you recommend? (e.g. how to completely remove owncloud stuff so that it would really be a startover?). Or if you think I could continue from here to find problems what should I do next?
