    Re: [howto] Mount your Box.Net account using WebDAV

    I got a error

    "Input/output error"

    When I tried to create a file on the box.net mount. I found this fix.

    Put use_locks 0 to your davfs2.conf file

    That was very handy when I finally found this post. However, I'm still getting some input/output errors, both reading and writing files. Any ideas why?

    Also, has anyone had any success using rsync or unison with a box.net mount? I tried rsync and it would do okay for a while then fail with input/output errors.

    Re: [howto] Mount your Box.Net account using WebDAV

    I just setup my box.net and wanted to share the steps with anybody having trouble. I suppose you've installed davfs already.

    Create a mount point:
    Code:
    mkdir ~/box.net
    Add this to /etc/fstab (correct the details for your user):
    Code:
    http://www.box.net/dav /home/user/box.net davfs rw,user,noauto 0 0
    (Just as a note, https didn't work for me. It mounts but copied files never showed up. I saw something on their site about 256bit SSL encryption being available when you upgrade to business.)

    To allow your your user to mount without being root you want to say yes to this:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure davfs2
    Then add user to davfs2 group
    Code:
    sudo adduser $USER davfs2
    Let's configure davfs in your home directory
    Code:
    mkdir ~/.davfs2
    cp /etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf ~/.davfs2
    Add this to ~/.davfs2/davfs2.conf:
    Code:
    use_locks       0
    To avoid typing your login and password every time:
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/davfs2/secrets ~/.davfs2
    sudo chown $USER ~/.davfs2/secrets
    Add your login and pass to ~/.davfs2/secrets:
    Code:
    http://www.box.net/dav	username@mail.com	password
    And finally mount:
    Code:
    mount ~/box.net
    I hope I didn't miss anything. I used some stuff originally found in french here: http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/davfs2

    I've been running rsync for a little while and ever since I got the configuration correct (i.e., nolocks, http) I haven't had any trouble.

    On the other hand, I want better synchronization so instead of rsync (or even Unison) I'm thinking of using something like dvcs-autosync or SparkleShare because they use a git backend and provide version control (among other features), but I haven't figured out how to set it up so that I can put the "central" .git repo on my box.net. (Maybe it's really simple.) Also, lots of my files are photos & music and I'm not sure if using git on them is a good idea.

    http://www.syncany.org/ might be an interesting option, they say they provide synchronization for local folders (including nfs and fuse mounts) out of the box, but the project doesn't seem very mature yet.

    Any ideas?

    HI, would you mind telling me how you managed to connect to box.net using Cadaver?

    I've tried many many times and get this error:


    Could not access /dav/ (not WebDAV-enabled?):
    207 Multi-Status
    Connection to `www.box.net' closed.


    What am I doing wrong?

    EDIT:

    Just figured out you have to pass the -t option to cadaver:


    Code:
    cadaver -t https://www.box.net/dav
    and everything works perfectly. =)

    Hello,

    I'm getting the same error too here. Accessing to my box.net account through webdav on macos worked well a few days ago.

    Hello,

    Try switching the address to
    Code:
    https://www.box.com/dav
    Box.net is undergoing a transition to Box.com (as I understand it) and I believe they deactivated access to the box.net domain via webDAV.

    Re: [howto] Mount your Box.Net account using WebDAV

    I kept getting this error:

    Code:
    /sbin/mount.davfs: Mounting failed.
    302 Found
    and solved it by changing my fstab from http://www.box.net to https://www.box.com after reading this thread.

    I think the problem is that box.net redirects to box.com.
