Intro picture

Recently, we changed the name of the Webdav module to Sync. For most people Webdav is not relevant enough. For non-technical people, it doesn’t mean anything.

So, why that change matters enough to be announced through a dedicated blog post? Because it requires that you update your current configuration. Here is what you should do:

  • In the urls asked by your client configuration, replace every occurence of webdav with sync.

It looks like this for the Android Platform:

  • CarDAV URL: https://your.domain.me/public/sync/principals/me/
  • CalDAV URL: https://your.domain.me/public/sync/principals/me/

The best way to deal with that change is to re-configure your CalDAV/CardDAV connections from Scratch. The documentation in the sync module is up to date, so you can set your new configuration by reading the documentation displayed in the Sync app.
