Adding Nextcloud via WebDav Errors Out

Posted on


I have a setup where on the same local network I have Ubuntu 18.04 running Nextcloud on Nginx webserver and another machine that runs Windows 10. I want to add my Nextcloud webdav as a mapped network drive but when I do this I am getting errors:

error 1

error 2

error 3

Accessing the webdav URL locally via a web browser works, so I can access the webdav by using the following URL:


It will ask for credentials and then display the following message:

This is the WebDAV interface. It can only be accessed by WebDAV clients such as the Nextcloud desktop sync client.

I have checked and WebClient is running as a Service. Why is this happening?


You did not mention which version of Nextcloud you are running but according to the manual for r15 here: , you should be mapping with additional “/dav/files/USERNAME/” at the end of your path string. See the section labeled “Mapping drives with Windows Explorer”.
