If you are running the apache webserver, it is recommended that you enable .htaccess files as ownCloud uses them to enhance security and allows you to use webfinger. To enable .htaccess files you need to ensure that AllowOverride is set to All in the Directory /var/www/ section of your virtual host file. This is usually infile: /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default. If your distro supports a2enmod run the following commands:

a2enmod rewrite

In distros that do not come with a2enmod thefile: /etc/httpd/httpd.conf needs to be changed to enable mod_rewrite

Then restart apache. For Ubuntu systems (or distros using updstart) use:

service apache2 restart

For systemd systems (fedora, ArchLinux, Fedora, OpenSuse) use:

systemctl restart httpd.service

In order for the maximum upload size to be configurable, the .htaccess file in the ownCloud folder needs to be made writable by the server.
