OSX and Nextcloud not connecting via CalDAV - 405 Method not allowed


I cannot connect via CalDAV or CardDAV to my nextcloud installation. I’m using the URL that is provided in the calendar section of Nextcloud. However, there is an error “405 Method not allowed”, see below. I have set up a new installation, so all files in nextcloud including .htaccess should be with default parameters.

What I have already tried to fix the issue:

  1. Disable mod_security
  2. Connect via CyberDuck to WebDAV -> This works and shows files, however I want to connect to CalDAV

What else could I try?

Best regards

Nextcloud version (11.0.1):
Operating system and version (Ubuntu 16.04):
Apache or nginx version (Apache 2.4.18):
PHP version (7.0.13-0ubuntu0.16.04.1):
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error and can you replicate it?:
I can replicate it every single time.

you can redirect these .well-know/-stuff that is needed for os x in your apache vhost:

Redirect 301 /.well-known/carddav /remote.php/dav
Redirect 301 /.well-known/caldav /remote.php/dav

Thank you! This works great!!

Can you share some calendars from Calendar.app ?
I have an error when tryin to do that.

I had the same problem - couldn´t get it to work with the same problem.

Then I changed the connection method to “Advanced” - there you can set server, path and port on your own…
and there it worked

Wanted to add: This method did NOT work for CardDAV :frowning:

This topic is for CalDAV and marked as solved. If you have issues with cardDAV, please open a new thread.
