Synchronizing files over the Internet

The Banana Pi is a great device for network applications. One especially interesting application is the synchronization of files over the Internet. In this recipe, we are going to set up the cloud solution ownCloud. ownCloud is an open source alternative to proprietary cloud solutions such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or Microsoft OneDrive. Once you have set up ownCloud, you can synchronize your data over the Internet and keep your data under your private control.

Getting ready

To set up an ownCloud solution, these ingredients are needed:

  • A running Banana Pi with a Debian-based Linux system
  • A configured network on the Banana Pi
  • A working Nginx web server as illustrated in the Setting up a web application recipe
