Deploy as an app in ownCloud 10

The ownCloud Web is being deployed as an app to ownCloud marketplace to enable easy early integration into existing ownCloud 10 instances. After completing this setup, ownCloud Web will be available on https://<your-owncloud-server>/index.php/apps/web.

Within the Admin page of ownCloud 10, head into User Authentication and add a new client with arbitrary name (e.g. ownCloud Web) and redirection URL https://<your-owncloud-server>/index.php/apps/web/oidc-callback.html.
