ownCloud On Dreamhost Shared Hosting

I want a way to share bookmarks between user accounts across different systems. While I generally achieve this using iCloud for Safari or Sync for Firefox there are some use cases where this is not convenient nor appropriate. ownCloud provides a bookmark sharing service so I thought I would give it a try. This blog post describes my steps setting up ownCloud on a subdomain hosted on Dreamhost. Note the caveats about using ownCloud on Dreamhost in the Dreamhost wiki.
