I finally had time to look more at the owncloud setup for Freedombox,
and created a patch <URL: https://github.com/NickDaly/Plinth/pull/72 >
to automatically configure it.  I set it to use PostgreSQL, as I prefer
ig over sqlite and mysql, and to make sure owncloud handle several users
at once.

The way this patch work now is to configure owncloud when the check box
is set up to the point where the admin user and admin password need to
be specified.  The first person visisting the
<URL: http://freedombox/owncloud/ > get to control the owncloud
installation.  A better approach would be to get username and password
from the Plinth user database, but I have no idea how to do that at the
moment.  Owncloud can get users from LDAP, WebDAV and "external source",
whatever that means, and I have not investigated how to do that yet.

This should work out of the box in a few days, when pagekite enter

Happy hacking
