Does anyone know the commands to install pagekite on Ubuntu server 12.04. I already have the ssh and lamp dependencies installed. I am trying to access my owncloud server from anywhere. If anyone has any way of making it so I can access the owncloud browser from anywhere please let me know. @Pieter.

May I ask why you want to install Pagekite although you have already setup an Ubuntu server? Because of a dynamic IP address? – leonis_csem Oct 31 '13 at 21:45
Yes I have a dynamic IP address, although my external IP has not changed in at least 2 years. I don't really know what I am doing, I just read about pagekite and it seemed like it would take care of the situation. If you know how to access owncloud remotely please let me know. I think I have to forward the port, although not sure how to find out which one I need to forward. And I don't know any commands to forward my internal ports, I only know how to forward through my router. From what I've read there are a few other steps too but I am unclear what they are. – Skateguy Oct 31 '13 at 23:13

actually I wrote up a tutorial on setting up owncloud a while ago which also deals with port forwarding. It's here.

Gd luck.
