Not sure if this is a nextcloud issue or a Joplin one.

I installed nextcloud and got it working. I can log in via web or IOS app. When I try to sync Joplin to my nextcloud, I get this error message:

PROPFIND: Unknown error 2 (405):
405 Method not allowed
The requested method PROPFIND is not allowed for the URL /nextcloud/remote-php/webdav/Joplin/.

The Joplin folder exists.
My nextcloud admin log is empty.
This is the end of my .htaccess, with replaced with the url in the real deal:


RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{ENV:HTTPS} !on
RewriteRule (.*) https://<>/nextcloud/$1 [R=301,L]
ErrorDocument 403 /nextcloud/
ErrorDocument 404 /nextcloud/

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I had the same problem with a remote nextcloud (yourownnet) and I solved it by using the webdav path like this :

Actually, that is the correct webdav path :slight_smile: .
