How to set up the WebDAV protocol on macOS?
Use the Finder file manager that has a built-in WebDAV connection and gain access to your files in the Koofr app following the steps below:
- Open your Account Settings in Koofr WebApp and select Preferences
- Click on Password in the menu on the left
- Scroll to the Generate new password textbox, type in the password name and click Generate
- Be sure to remember the password, as you cannot view it later
Note: You will not be able to set up a WebDAV connection, without using an application-specific password.
When you've generated the WebDAV password:
- Open the Finder on your computer
- Click on the Go menu and select Connect to Server
- In the new window enter https://app.koofr.net/dav/Koofr and click on Connect
- Type in your Koofr username (email address you used when creating your Koofr account) and WebDAV password that you generated previously into the new window and click on the Connect button.
Now you have established a WebDAV protocol for the Koofr app on your macOS computer. In the folder structure on your computer, you will now see a new Network Drive. If you click on it, you can see the same folder structure as in the Koofr web application.
Note: If you forget the WebDAV password that you generated through Koofr WebApp, you can always generate a new one, but you'll need to replace it everywhere that you've used it.
Note: If you want to see all of the available Koofr files (for example, files in your Shared folders) in your mounted network drive, you need to mount the root Koofr folder as a network drive. That means you need to use https://app.koofr.net/dav/ as a Host, when mounting your network drive manually. If you use the Koofr desktop app to enable the Koofr network drive, this is already taken care of. Please also note that if you mount https://app.koofr.net/dav/ the first level of your network drive is not writeable. That means you cannot create files and folders on that level.
