This update provides some improvements to the Apache configuration files that are included in the package to ease deployment (and to a smaller extent, also the Nginx configuration file).
Most notably, this should fix the 'app store' function by providing the necessary Alias:
Alias /owncloud/apps-appstore /var/lib/owncloud/apps
if you have edited the /etc/httpd/conf.d/owncloud.conf file locally, the packaged version will install as owncloud.conf.rpmnew. We recommend you merge the changes into your own version, or keep the packaged owncloud.conf and move your changes to a file which overrides it, such as z-owncloud-local.conf .
The update also provides a (hopefully) more convenient method for enabling and disabling remote access to the ownCloud installation. You can simply symlink the file owncloud-access-conf.avail to enable remote access, e.g.:
ln -s /etc/httpd/conf.d/owncloud-access.conf.avail /etc/httpd/conf.d/z-owncloud-access.conf
as long as the target name ends in .conf and sorts alphabetically after 'owncloud.conf', it will supersede owncloud.conf and enable remote access. If you need to lock down access to the server, you can simply remove the symlink.
This removes the need for you to provide the appropriate syntax yourself, and the symlink approach will mean that if the required configuration changes in future ownCloud releases, the packaged owncloud-access.conf.avail file can be updated and your installation will keep working with no need for you to make manual changes.
The new approach makes use of some files containing common directives, to be included by the .conf files (to reduce duplication of these directives between different config files and sections). These are named with the suffix .inc. Note that they only take effect when included by files whose names end with .conf. Only files whose name end with .conf are directly read by Apache.
There are no functional changes to ownCloud itself in this update, it is concerned only with the web server configuration files.
