Trying to access my files via webdav with WinSCP, but getting a 405 “Method not Allowed” error.
I understand that WinSCP needs to communicate with host.com/nextcloud/remote.php/dav/files//, but if I enter that value as the “Host name” in WinSCP, I suspect that it requests a directory listing for /nextcloud/remote.php/dav/files// from host.com, but of course the root url host.com doesn’t implement webdav. WinSCP needs to issue requests to the full path, but I can’t figure out how to make it do so.
There’s a number of posts on this forum suggesting using WinSCP, but none mention this issue.
The nextcloud docs explain how to access via cyberduck, but no mention of WinSCP.
There’s a number of posts on the WinSCP forum, acknowledging that you’ll get a 405 error if requests are made to the root URL, and there’s a RootPath setting to specify the path that requests should be issued to, but I can’t see anywhere to specify that RootPath setting via the UI.
I can’t use a workaround like mapping it at as network drive, or cyberduck, because I’m trying to access from a corporate desktop with no administrator access, and WinSCP is likely the only option because I can use a portable / standalone app.
Thanks in Advance.
