Own Cloud Storage

Get Your Own Cloud

Today, I'm installing my own cloud on windows 8.

There are four primary steps to the installation, and then an added fifth step required for configuring everything to allow files larger than the default 2 MB size.

  1. Install IIS with CGI support – enable IIS on your Windows machine.
  2. Install PHP – Grab, download and install PHP.
  3. Install MySQL – Setup the MySQL server manager and enable ownCloud to create an instance.
  4. Install ownCloud – The whole reason we are here!
  5. Configure upload sizes and timeouts to enable large file uploads – So that you can upload larger files.
Microsoft Web Installer is amazing

Failed to Install in Windows due to issues with Own Cloud. But I successfully installed in Ubuntu 14.10

Walkmod Code Convention Tool

Walkmod is an open source Java tool to apply code conventions. It scans the code and instead of just reporting the invalid source files, it corrects the code automatically

why should you use coding conventions?
  • 40%-80% of the lifetime cost of a piece of software goes to maintenance.
  • Hardly any software is maintained for its whole life by the original author.
  • Code conventions improve the readability of the software.
  • You need to make sure it is as well packaged and clean as any other product you create.
