I'm running ownCloud 7, (the community edition), on a VPS and it doesn't cause any errors if I go to Contacts, just says I don't have any and would I like to add some.
There's also Turnkey ownCloud
if you want to try a bootable ISO or a different VM implementation, (older version of ownCloud though).
Another alternative for you, no installation required.
Download this: USBWebserver8.6 + ownCloud
~49MB (~160MB when extracted) It's on my ownCloud server.
Extract to a flash drive, (make it a fast one), or an empty folder, run usbwebserver.exe
, when the interface comes up, choose your language, and then click the Localhost
It will open the home page of USBWebserver in your browser, eg.help needed: owncloud contacts on vmware with IIS
Change the address adding owncloud
to the end, hit Enter, the ownCloud setup page will open:help needed: owncloud contacts on vmware with IIS
Fill in a username and password for the Administrator, then click the Finish Setup
button.A NOTE HERE:
The database that the setup creates is absolute addressed. This means that if you used a flash drive and you plug it into another computer, make sure it has the same drive letter assigned to it as it had when the ownCloud setup ran
All being well, you'll end up with this:help needed: owncloud contacts on vmware with IIS
Here's Contacts and Calendar:help needed: owncloud contacts on vmware with IIS help needed: owncloud contacts on vmware with IIS
NOTE: You'll need to open the firewall, (Private domain is OK for local testing), for both USBWebserver and MySQL. If you want to see it from outside your network, just open the public port for USBWebserver.
Feel free to call me names if it doesn't work
PS. I'd recommend trying it on a computer that you haven't been screwing with Apache, MySQL, PHP, and ownCloud on first. It should be OK, but why take chances
