Is there any way to add files to a users Nextcloud folder directly from the server?

I have an automated process that runs on my server and downloads files at a specified interval. I’d like to dump these files onto my Nextcloud folder and have them “auto-magically” sync to my PC. Is there any way to do this?

My server is running Ubuntu Server 16.04

I thought there might be a way to hack something together using davfs2 and using it to mount the folder via webdav. Might there be an easier way to do this?

You can dump that content in a folder on your server and then use this folder as “external” storage. On external storage, changes by other processes are permitted while the data-folder is used by Nextcloud exclusively, in this case webdav would be an option.
