Cant get my trusty Joplin to connect to new Nextcloud server :(

Hello all...

I have been a user of Joplin for a while now. Today I am trying to connect the desktop app to a new Nextcloud instance...

However, I now get the following when I check the connection.

Error. Please check that URL, username, password, etc. are correct and that the sync target is accessible. The reported error was:

PROPFIND : (Exception OCA\DAV\Connector\Sabre\Exception\PasswordLoginForbidden) (401): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <d:error xmlns:d="DAV:" xmlns:s="" xmlns:o=""> <s:exception>OCA\DAV\Connector\Sabre\Exception\PasswordLoginForbidden</s:exception> <s:message/> <o:hint xmlns:o="o:">password login forbidden</o:hint> </d:error> (Code 401)

The path is copy and pasted from the settings in Nextcloud Files and the password and username are correct.

Does anyone know of a fix to get me back on, please?

Many thanks


Might be a silly question but do you definitely have the 'Joplin' folder on it and if so does your Nextcloud URL in Joplin also have it i.e. https://nextcloud/remote.php/dav/files/username/Joplin

@Daeraxa No that's certainly not a silly question and thanks for your reply... I checked, checked, and checked again and again.... and everything was in place, the address, username & password. What I did notice was that I couldn't get a connection to CalDAV/CardDAV either using DavX5 or other cal/CardDAV app.

The good thing was that it was a new install and not fully set up... (I have a habit of checking things over to make sure things still work each time I add a new app or function to Nextcloud...)

I did a reinstall of NC and now everything is working as advertised... Whew!..

So all good thanks, and again thanks for reading and answering...


Joplin and Nextcloud: A glorious combination indeed (and vastly under-rated & under-appreciated!).

Yes... Without a doubt....
