I want to create a public folder (like Dropbox) in my owncloud installation where I can put files that others can access without having to create an account.

Is this possible with owncloud 4.5.x?

It is quite simple though, just do the following:

  1. Login to your owncloud account at your server
  2. Navigate your mouse to the folder that you wanted to share
  3. You will see that Rename, Share and Download will appear Navigate your mouse to the folder that you wanted to share

  4. Tick Share with Link and share that link with anyone that you want to or you can use the mailing feature to email the link to those who you want. Tick Share with Link and copy the link
