speed up your owncloud by using redis on an uberspace webspace

Your owncloud is a bit slow, you are using uberspace and you want to speed it up easily?
Easy solution is to use redis.
The compressed howto is down below. It is taken from the uberspace wiki and a privat blog entry.

test -d ~/service || uberspace-setup-svscan
svc -du ~/service/redis

#to prevent or fix the following error "Missing memcache class \OC\Memcache\Redis for local cache"
uberspace-install-pecl redis
Last but not least, you have to adapt your */config/config.php* file by adding and adapting the following lines into the configuration array.

    //begin of redis configuration
    'memcache.local' => '\OC\Memcache\Redis',
    'redis' => array(
        'host'      => '/home//.redis/sock',
        'port'      => 0,
        'timeout'   => 0.0 
    //end of redis configuration

howto - add usage of owncloud to you android phone and your thunderbird


Big thanks to the "Google to Owncloud, Contacts and Calendar" entry. This really helps me a lot.
Especially, the link above tells you how to configure your android phone and your mozilla thunderbird (with lightning) to setup the synchronisation with your owncloud.
I gave it a try with "caldav free sync beta" but had a long run of bad luck. After a while, I gave "CalDAV-Sync" a try and it is worth its money since it is working out of the box. Setting up the "carddav" synchronization is also a no brainer, but converting the google contacts to the owncloud contacts is something not that easy for me as a no-gui-user.


For "carddav" (address book) synchronization, you need to install sogo connector.
For "caldav" (calendar) synchronization, you need to install "lightning". The "howto" is described in the first link above.


I found one issue in my owncloud configuration file (config/config.php) and could solve it by adding "1 => 'my.owncloud.domain:443'" to the "trusted domain" array key.

current state of synchronize owncloud with thunderbird lightning or android

So, I really gave it a try and invested multiple hours. Either my spirit is not strong enough today, or it is currently not possible to synchronize owncloud 8.0.2 calenders with other applications.
To calm me down, here is a list of possible problems that are the reasons I failed currently with my mission.

What did I learned?

And finally, a list of most promising howtos (always have an eye to the creation date and the owncloud version used).
