To install Owncloud:

create a seperate subdomain cpanel user (your preference)

tar -xjf path/to/downloaded/owncloud-x.x.x.tar.bz2
cp -r /path/to/owncloud/* /home/user/public_html
chown -R www-data:www-data /path/to/your/owncloud/install/data

Note: data folder will not be created until initial setup has been run
Go to or http://yourwebsite/owncloud

my initial setup page said:

PHP module zip not installed.
PHP module mb multibyte not installed.
PHP module GD is not installed.
PHP PDO module is not installed.

run ea to install these php5 modules

refresh install page and setup admin user/pw
set the permissions to 750 on the ‘data’ folder directory

login and enjoy!
