Problem entering nextcloud info for synchronizing - Android

I ma using android phone and Joplin.

When trying to connect to my Nextcloud account, I get an error from Joplin and I can not log in:

PROPFIND: Unknown Error 2 (405): (Code 405)

URL, username an dpassword were all entered correctly.

Might you have an idea why this is happening?



Sounds like config problem on Nextcloud side. Can you connect with a regular WebDAV client like this one?

Can you give me a similar webdav client name for Linux (Ubuntu)?

I do have the nextcloud client installed and it works fine.



Here is the response when I installed Joplin on my Ubuntu Joplin software install:

Created remote items: 1.

Completed: 16/12/2018 06:56

Last error: Error: PUT Unknown error 2 (404): <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang=“en-US” class=“no-js no-svg”> <head> <meta charset=“UTF-8”> <meta name=“viewport” content=“width=device-width, initial-scale=1”> <link rel=“profile” href=“”> <script>(function(html){html.className = html.className.replace(/\bno-js\b/,‘js’)})(document.documentElement);</script> <title>Page not found &#8211; Joes Space</title> <link rel=‘dns-prefetch’ href=’//

Seems like the similar error.

The best way to test webdav on the command line:

Btw, are you sure, you have entered the correct Nextcloud WebDAV API endpoint?


What do you mean by the correct "NextCloud WebDAV API endpoint?

I typed in the URL that points to my NC install.

That should be sufficient, but currently it isn’t. You need to supply the full path:

https://nchost/remote.php/webdav/path to the Joplin notes

  • Check your username and password. Type it manually (without copying and pasting it) and try again.
  • Check the WebDAV URL - to get the correct URL, go to Nextcloud and, in the left sidebar, click on “Settings” and copy the WebDAV URL from there. Do not forget to add the folder you’ve created to that URL . For example, if the base the WebDAV URL is “” and you want the notes to be synced in the “Joplin” directory, you need to give the URL “ you need to create the “Joplin” directory yourself .

On the desktop application or mobile application , go to the config screen and select Nextcloud as the synchronisation target. Then input the WebDAV URL (to get it, click on Settings in the bottom left corner of the page, in Nextcloud), this is normally ( make sure to create the “Joplin” directory in Nextcloud ), and set the username and password. If it does not work, please see this explanation for more details.

Thanks to the both of you,

It is now up and running!!!

I will start exploring Joplin and slowly migrate to it with my notes and lists.

Thanks again
