Owncloud remainders in documentation

I crawled through the admin-, user-, and developer documentation searching for forgotten entries referencing to owncloud instead of nextcloud.
You guys have done a fantastic job updating the heapload of documentation available, but it will not come as a surprise, that there are still some inconsistencies here and there.

For what it’s worth, please feel free to use (and modify) this post as a “to-do” tracker for old name rudiments still present :slight_smile:

Edit: update obsolete entry

Thanks for that, @John. Much appreciated!

https://docs.nextcloud.org/server/9/admin_manual/installation/installation_wizard.html

Adjusted where possible. Some are technical details we can’t change right now.

https://docs.nextcloud.org/server/9/admin_manual/configuration_user/user_auth_ftp_smb_imap.html

OC_ is the namespace used here by the source code. We can’t change that without breaking a lot.

https://docs.nextcloud.org/server/9/admin_manual/configuration_user/user_auth_ldap_cleanup.html

Tables are prefixed with oc_ by default. At the moment we can’t change that without breaking a lot.

https://docs.nextcloud.org/server/9/admin_manual/configuration_files/external_storage/dropbox.html

Minimal screenshot that uses “oc”, can stay like that in my opinion.

Technical terms we can’t change.

We can’t change that at the moment because the code relies on that and we need to keep compatibility for now.

A quick GitHub search of that repo currently shows 168 occurrences of “ownCloud” in the doumentation code. Now I’m sure there are a couple which are legitimate, but I thought this could be a fun “score” for us (all) to improve on! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Note that this is a search on master, there most of the stuff is not yet fixed. Stable9 should be correct.

But yes, any contributions are welcome :rocket:
