Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

ownCloud provides several tips to improve application performance when you access the admin panel.

  • No memory cache has been configured. To enhance your performance please configure a memcache if available. Further information can be found in our documentation.

    ownCloud recommends configuring caching. It improves performance by storing data, code, and other objects in memory. Find out more.

  • You are accessing this site via HTTP. We strongly suggest you configure your server to require using HTTPS instead as described in our security tips.

    ownCloud also suggests access using HTTPS instead of HTTP. Find out more.

  • The “Strict-Transport-Security” HTTP header is not configured to least “15768000” seconds. For enhanced security we recommend enabling HSTS as described in our security tips.

    To follow this suggestion, add the line below in the installdir/apps/owncloud/conf/httpd-app.conf file:

    Header always add Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=15768000; includeSubDomains; preload"
