Davfs2 : unable to mount read-write


I have a server with Nextcloud 12.0.3

when I try to mount any directory via davfs2 on a fedora 27 client , the mount is ok but is always read-only.

I follow the instructions : https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/12/user_manual/files/access_webdav.html?highlight=sync#creating-webdav-mounts-on-the-linux-command-line

/etc/fstab contains “… davfs user,rw,auto 0 0…”

I set use_lock 0 without success

When I mount this directory on the same machine with the file manager nemo, it is ok : the directory is read-write
When I mount this directory on a windows 10 machine , via https , it is ok . read/write flawlessly

Any hint ?
is there another way to mount directory via webdav ?

thank you

Server :
Nextcloud 12.0.3
on a Centos 7.4

Client :
fedora 27
davfs2 1.5.4-6

Do you have any logfiles? Could be on client side (perhaps it tries to write but it fails) or server side (you will see if someone tries to write and fails).

Davfs2 worked for me, put together from various sources… Thanks everyone! One more step towards total freedom.

My /etc/fstab line :

https:// ncpi. mydomain. org:xx43/remote.php/webdav/MYbackups/ /media/backups davfs defaults,uid=myusername,gid=mygroupname,_netdev,auto 0 0


sudo echo “/media/backups/ ncusername password” >> /etc/dav2fs/secrets

My server NC13 on RPI3 update&&upgrade
My client VM-Ubuntu server 16.04LTS update&&upgrade
My steps.


use_lock 0

Only removes the warning about locks being unsupported.
