After having installed the owncloud package and creating a mysql database for owncloud, I went to 
http://<server>/owncloud and was greeted with the msg 
"PHP module GD is not installed."

Installed the php5-gd package and reloaded the page, at which I got the msg
"Can't write into config directory 'config'"

so I did "chown -R www-data:www-data /var/lib/owncloud/config" and after that the config and data 
directory (/var/lib/owncloud/data) were owned by www-data, the rest was owned by root.
For comparison, on the owncloud instance I installed manually the whole owncloud directory (and 
subdirectories) were owned by www-data.
That did not fix the issue. Since /var/lib/owncloud/config is a symlink to /etc/owncloud, I did "chown 
-R www-data:www-data /etc/owncloud", but that didn't fix it either.
After both chown actions I did "/etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload" to make sure the changes were 
taken into account.
According to DeepDiver that's because in /usr/share/owncloud/lib/util.php the file location is wrong:
		// Check if config folder is writable.

After changing that line to (thanks DeepDiver):
I was greeted with the login page, allowing me to enter the mysql data and the administrative 
Entered those and clicked "Finish setup" and was redirected to http://<server>/owncloud/index.php 
which showed an empty page :-(

Removed the "index.php" from the address bar, pressed enter and got the setup page again. 
Entered my data again and got an empty page again. /etc/init.d/apache2/force-reload didn't help.

I've attached apache2's error.log which contains only the errors after debian's owncloud 

Is there also a (tar.gz) archive of owncloud as provided by owncloud.org? 
I can then install that in my own (non-Debian) install of owncloud, so I can test whether issues are 
caused by owncloud.org or by the debian packages of it.
