Install ownCloud on CentOS 6.4 x86_64

As you may know ownCloud is a wonderful FREE online storage platform that can be install in any kind of environment without those annoying restrictions of max file size, total storage and bandwidth constraints. It can be deployed on almost any box you may have laying around for a quick online storage system. Being free and early in stage it has its minor/major issues when trying to get out its full potential, along the way I’ve done multiple installations trying to make this work as flawless as possible and here is a complete guide on how to install it on CentOS 6.4.

Lets start by assuming you already have a web server running on Centos 6.4 with PHP 5.5 (Important that you have this version), if not then refer to these online guides on how to do so.
