Error - Your web server is not properly set up to resolve "/.well-known/caldav"


I have just moved to a new webhost (Hostinger) and manually installed the NextCloud client - I has installed fine but is giving a few errors in the overview


Your web server is not properly set up to resolve “/.well-known/caldav”.

I have looked over the documentation but cannot seem to resolve the issue. I have it installed in the root folder. when entered manually seems to work ok, but gives a 404 error.

Any help much appreciated,



Yes, nextcloud is somewhat buggy in its resolving of webdav domains. You have to manually enter the correct one.

Or add an entry in your reverse proxy pointing the errored one to the correct one.

Thanks for the reply…

Do you mean in the mod rewrite of htaccess?

If so how do i know the location of the caldav?

Sorry if this is a sill question (not my area of expertise)


No I don’t mess with the htaccess within docker.

Like you said, one of the link works, so in your nginx or other reverse proxy, add the broken link to be redirected to the working one.
