Connecting Nextcloud via WebDAV

#1 Post by modda » 2018-10-05 13:04

Hi everyone,

today I got FileZilla Pro and tried to connect my Nextcloud via WebDAV.

As URL I tried:

- https://example.com
- https://example.com/remote.php/dav/files/USERNAME/

With the 2nd way there is a connection but I get the error, that the table of contents could not be received.

Does anybody know, how I can connect die Nextcloud to FileZilla WebDAV?

Best regarda
modda

The server rejects the PROPFIND method, meaning that the location entered as the default remote directory (or "/" if none entered), is not a WebDAV resource.

Without changing anything on the server I can connect with the software "Cyberduck" via WebDAV. But in Cyberduck there are advaced Options to type the whole path.

In FileZilla it's:

I Type https://domain.de/remote.php/dav/files/USERNAME/ and after saving it's just https://domain.de

Trying to type the "remote.php/dav/files/USERNAME/" in advanced options and standard-folder of Server don't work.

In Cyberduck i type https://domain.de and in advanced the rest of the path "remote.php/dav/files/USERNAME/" and it works.

So the FileZilla Software maybe needs to be fixed?

Best regards

The leading slash needs to be part of the path.

Oh - my - god. Awkward.

But at least it will help some other users (If using the search).

Thank you!

Could you please show me an example of what you mean by the "leading slash"? How should I format the Advanced remote folder field and how should I format the host id field?

I just bought and installed Filezilla Pro for the same reason: Being able to connect to a nextcloud server via webdav.
And I ran in exactly the same issue.
Can you please tell your paying users how you intended this to work with nextcloud webdav??

Like another user already said, there are free alternatives which are able to do this right out of the box and I'm regarding my purchase of filezilla pro as a sponsoring towards the ftp-client I always liked most. But with this sloppy support for the pro version and bloatware inside of the installer of the free version I'm starting to regret my investment.

A leading slash is a slash that comes at the beginning. It is used to denote absolute paths.

foo is a relative path because it has no leading slash.
/foo is an absolute path because it has a leading slash.

The Site Manager of FileZilla always requires absolute paths for the default remote directory.
