Using alternative app directories

ownCloud can be set to use a custom app directory in /config/config.php. Customise the following code and add it to your config file:

'apps_paths' => [
    [
        'path' => OC::$SERVERROOT.'/apps',
        'url' => '/apps',
        'writable' => false,
    ],
    [
        'path' => OC::$SERVERROOT.'/apps-external',
        'url' => '/apps-external',
        'writable' => true,
    ],
],

ownCloud will use for new or app updates the first app directory which it finds in the array with ‘writable’ set to true.
