NextCloud & OwnCloud - Can´t seem to get it working on pure distros

Hi Guys, 

Has any of you succeeded in installing NextCloud or OwnCloud on your VPS´s with "pure" distros? 

I can install both apps, however whatever I do I always hit the same problem:

NextCloud - The server was unable to complete your request.


If this happens again, please send the technical details below to the server administrator.


More details can be found in the server log.

OwnCloud - Your Data directory is invalid


Please check that the data directory contains a file ".ocdata" in its root.

Cannot create "data" directory


This can usually be fixed by <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">giving the webserver write access to the root directory</a>.

Now both softwares were installed via Softaculous scripts. Do you think this is somewhat related? It seems that it´s a matter of permissions but honestly I´m clueless
