Any upload from a Mac of a file or folder with German or French accents hangs (doesn't matter if done thru web drag'n drop or client software). The file is actually uploaded if one leaves enough time. But one need to kill the process (e.g. force quit the page), as OwnCloud doesn't recognize the end of the process.
As per what I have read, it seems Mac OS has a different handling of UTF-8 (the rest is too technical for me).
I am sure this image will be very helpful for many people (it took literally 1 minute to setup, instead of an hour for a complicated install from scratch).
But for someone dealing with non English language and Mac OS X, it seems OwnCloud still has a problem unfortunately. To me, this is still a no go unfortunately (either for me as a private person, or as a potential solution for my SMB).
I have a customer network it would be perfect in (I think): ~15 users, spread across two buildings in two cities with typical broadband connections. There's a definite need to be able to share files between the two offices but Windows filesharing... well, sucks. E-mail ends up being the medium used 95% of the time.
The current plan is to get everyone on the same Windows/AD domain, put in a fileserver at each site and use DFS to take care of everything behind the scenes.
It seems like ownCloud could be a viable candidate to replace that, with the added benefits of giving folks access to their data while out of the office/on the road/travelling/etc.
