Description daniel 2016-06-16 09:33:06 UTC
Created attachment 437738 [details]

The first Version of nextcloud (9.0.50) is just available a few days now.
Since I found nothing (except an announcement) in the forums nor here in Bugzilla, I tried figuring out how to migrate my owncloud installation to nextcloud.

I modified the owncloud-ebuild (see attachement) to fit the new name and location.

Before emerging, I simply created a symlink named nextcloud pointing to owncloud in my htdocs directory (made a backup before :) and fired it up.

After emerging, the update in  the browser was just as easy as the regulary owncloud update.

At the end, I simply deleted the symlink, renamed the owncloud directory to nextcloud and unmerged owncloud. Simple as that :)

Oh, and of course you have to update/edit your config.php :)
