Starkit uses the ownCloud open source software. The ownCloud Sync Client is a desktop program or mobile app installed on a user’s computer or mobile phone. It allows a user to specify one or more directories on the local machine to sync to your Starkit. It allows the user to always have the latest files wherever they may be on every device you use. When a change is made to the file on the computer or mobile, it will sync to the Starkit via the sync client.

Obtaining the client

First you need to obtain the desktop or mobile client for your computer or phone from the page below

Setting up an account

If no account has been configured, the ownCloud Client will automatically assist in connecting to your Starkit after the application has been started.

As a first step, specify the URL to your Starkit. This is the same address that is used in the browser with port 8443.

For example if your Starkit address is your owncloud server is

Next, enter the username and password. These are the same credentials used to log into the Starkit webmail interface. Use your email and password.

Finally, choose the folder that ownCloud Client is supposed to sync the contents of your Starkit account with. By default, this is a folder called ownCloud, which will be created in the home directory.

At this time, the synchronization between the root directories of the Starkit Cloud server will begin.

If selecting a local folder that already contains data, there are two options that exist.

Keep local data: If selected, the files in the local folder on the client will be synced up to the ownCloud server.
Start a clean sync: If selected, all files in the local folder on the client will be deleted and therefore not synced to the ownCloud server.
