Quickly disable/enable Owncloud app using command line

Using the occ command we can control Owncloud in many ways. Very useful for situations where you can’t access the web frontend due to a broken upgrade or application.

The occ command is available from Owncloud 7 and later.

For example to disable the calendar application we run:

sudo -u www-data php -f occ app:disable calendar

And to enable the app again:

sudo -u www-data php -f occ app:enable calendar

To find the application’s name look in the owncloud/apps folder or just use the app:list command.

My output looks like this on Owncloud 8.0.0

sudo -u www-data php occ app:list
