ownCloud update to 8.0.3 Web GUI errors fix!

I logged into ownCloud as usual and found that the normal ownCloud Desktop Client worked just fine, but I could no longer access the Web GUI. All I got was a blank screen with no errors shown or anything.

I looked in the ownCloud Apache log file (mine was /var/log/apache2/owncloud.log) and found that errors were being thrown:

[Wed May 13 16:01:58.139858 2015] [:error] [pid 7879] [client x.x.x.x:xxxxx] PHP Fatal error:  Class OCA\\Contacts\\Share\\Addressbook contains 1 abstract method and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (OCP\\Share_Backend::isShareTypeAllowed) in /var/www/owncloud/apps/contacts/lib/share/addressbook.php on line 130

Weird. After some Googling I found that a lot of people had the same problem. It turns out its an error associated with the calender/contacts app, as I found here. You should disable these apps BEFORE you update to stop this from happening, but if you already updated, follow the steps below to get the Web GUI back:

  1. Open your mySQL database editor (I use Webmin) and edit the ownCloud database:

  5. Change the two configvalues to “no” and press Save.

That’s it! I got my Web GUI back!
