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:
  2. Go into Edit table and select oc_appconfig.
  3. Press View Data at the bottom of the form.
  4. Select the rows containing Calender enabled and Contacts enabled and press Edit selected rows.
  5. Change the two configvalues to “no” and press Save.

That’s it! I got my Web GUI back!
