Creating a Subdomain
Login to Bluehost -> click on Domain tab-> click on Subdomain (Short cut for Bluehost Subdomain : https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/dm/subdomain)
Create a subdomain. I’m creating a subdomain as “cloud.gokuldeepak.com”
Uploading of the setup-owncloud.php
Go to: https://owncloud.org/install/#instructions-server select “web installer” tab
Download the setup-owncloud.php from https://download.owncloud.com/download/community/setup-owncloud.php
Switch to your Bluehost Cpanel -> File manager
Select WWW folder -> In the file manager you will find the subdomain folder. A folder named “cloud”(or whatever name you gave previously for your subdomain on step 2)
Now upload the setup-owncloud.php to this folder.
Last step to Install OwnCloud
Go to the following url : “cloud.gokuldeepak.com/setup-owncloud.php” Change for your domain name.
It will ask to set new username and password.
Success!!! We have successfully installed owncloud on our Bluehost account.
After the installation the .php file will be automatically deleted so that you can enjoy the service without worrying about the setup file.
