At the risk of sounding like a broken record (did you actually READ what 
I wrote?) Owncloud does NOT require php-mysql, it requires 
php-pdo_mysql. In PHP versions before 7.0 that pulled in the 
corresponding php-mysql port. It is NOT a requirement (there, I said it 
a THIRD time).

 From their docs at 

Database connectors (pick the one for your database:)

PHP module sqlite (>= 3, usually not recommended for performance reasons)
PHP module pdo_mysql (MySQL/MariaDB)
PHP module pgsql (requires PostgreSQL >= 9.0)

Now I may just be dumb, but I don't see a mention of php-mysql (I do 
however see pdo_mysql).
