How to Access Server to Modify / View Files

You can use SSH or RDP to connect to the server, which is located at owncloud.cs.uwaterloo.ca. You can log in using cscf-op.

How to Modify Server Root Directory

Log onto our ownCloud server at owncloud.cs.uwaterloo.ca.
We will connect to the server using SSH.
Once connected, navigate to the following directory using the cd command: /etc/apache2/sites-available

There are two files located in this directory, "default", and "default-ssl" (for HTTP and HTTPS, respectively).
Open up "default" to edit. You will need root access to do this.
Type the following command: sudo nano default
To change the default root directory for the server, you will need to modify two lines of code. The text you will be changing is highlighted in the image below:
HTTP Document Root
The root directory is currently set to /var/www/owncloud (note: there is no forward slash '/' at the end of the address).
You may change this to any location you want.
