When I try to access owncloud it gives the following error message: " Your Data directory is readable by other users Please change the permissions to 0770 so that the directory cannot be listed by other users." However, I intend to use owncloud in my own private network, and I don't care about any of this. Sadly, it is not possible to change the permission rights for my usb drive, so the following question: Is there any way to just silence this error by owncloud?
This is not answer on how to silence the error, but the following may help you to configure owncloud the way it likes to be configured.
You could just try to mount your USB drive with
0007 to prevent access bits for
others beieng set.
mount -o uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0007 /dev/sdb1 /mnt
