Hopefully yours is working better than mine.

Peace.
I use A2hosting as well, and can verify that this is accurate using their Web Disk feature. Https :2078 hits a dead end when OF tries to sync, due to the unconfirmed security certificate error. So using http and :2077 works.

Unfortunately, I also discovered what you describe. Syncing appears to be successfully occurring, but upon comparing new OF projects on the desktop to the iPhone, they aren't appearing.

I was able to verify that AFTER a sync (either via iphone or desktop), the .ofocus database file in my WebDAV folder is showing modification times as expected. Everything appears to be working as expected. But alas, new tasks/projects/etc added to Device A prior to syncing are not appearing in Device B after sync.

This is very frustrating. Though I realize the voodoo necessary to make this happen is nothing short of magical. I'll look forward to learning how to resolve this. For now, OF will just sit on my iPhone until i can properly sync it with my Mac.

In terms of cPanel, is your Web Disk "/" , "public_html/<username>" , "public_html" or something else? Thanks,

you have to go in cPanel and create a new webdisk, then cPanel will even create a bookmark for you that you can use to login via Finder to make sure it's working properly.

Don't use the SSL + port 2078 but the HTTP (not HTTPS) @ port 2077

I will keep in touch with you If I hear anything, Please do the same.

After we get this resolved we can meet up in 40 years as veterans and remember the battle of OF webdav sync
jlowen,

I've updated to OF 1.1 SP (v77.4.0.102768), the issue with "in-progress" files seems to be gone. I turned off syncing, updated OF, deleted all the stuff from the WebDAV folder, and re-configured the sync. It transfered the tasks fine.

NOW the issue is about every 60 seconds, I get an error dialog that tells me:
"Unable to perform WebDAV operation.

The server returned an error 404, "not found"."

I guess I'll send another message to the support ninjas. :)

Peace
 
all personal issues aside (grumble grumble roar) this is what is happening with me.

1. Create webDav through cPanel
2. Sync omni focus (desktop) to webDav - worked fine.
3. Sync Omni Focus to my iPhone - worked fine. imported all the information I had put in.
4. Desktop App started throwing a 404, not found error.
5. iPhone App started throwing disallowed character errors.

If I delete the omnifocus folder from the webDAV and resync it all works well, but I'd rather not have to do that everytime I want to sync.

I'm confident however that it's a known issue, and will be worked out.
Go Omni Go!
 
"The server returned an error 404, "not found"."

Seems to be the latest WebDAV bug indeed... getting the same

1) I already have web disk access (to the root of my directory: "/") with my cPanel username *without* "@domain.com" I believe this access came default in cPanel. When I choose to access it, the bookmark works and I have Finder access. However for iOF WebDAV sync to work, I am correct in assuming that the directory need to be off public_html, e.g., "/public_html/omnifocus"? (I have already created a "username@domain.com"-style account for Web Disk access, so that's no problem.)

2) Re the tip about *not* using SSL, when choosing to Access Web Disk in cPanel, does the "SSL (recommended)" checkbox have any effect on the iOF accessing the directory, or is that only relevant to how OS X accesses it (and mounts it on the desktop)? (See the end of my message for the cPanel info.)

Sorry if I'm missing the obvious.

Bob

"Access Web Disk

Select an Operating System from one of the drop lists to access your Web Disk. You'll need to save the file and then double click on it to run it. Once you run the file, your Web Disk will appear on your desktop.

Note: Ports 2078 (SSL) or 2077 (non-SSL) will need to be allowed on your computer's firewall to use the Web Disk."
 
1) You have to put in publich HTML directory in order to access it via "your_domain.com"

"your_domain.com" points to public_html/ contents...

I don't recommend to create the webdisk as the "root" like you describe it unless you're only going to access it via WebDAV. From everything I've read, accessing directories via both WebDAV + STP/FTP can create problems... Although I have no idea how cPanel handles it... But I would a webdav specific folder in my public_html if I were you (via webdisk cPanel utility)

EDIT: I should mention that if you create you webdis say like: public_html/omnifocus/" when you enter the url in OF prefs, you shouldn't include omnifocus folder like "http://your_domain.com/omnifocus" but just "http://your_domain.com:2077" the server knows which folder it is from the user account you sign in from

2) the "SSL (recommended)" checkbox" only changes the way the "bookmark" you're downloading will connect to WebDAV folder.

https://your_domain.com:2078 or
http://your_domain.com:2077

ps: weird that you don't need to include @xxx.xxx for user name - that's pretty standard for webdav I think

Bob,

1. I believe so. I set up a specific "username" to log into my WebDAV. That process will (or should) create a folder under public_html. This is sort of that user's "home" directory for files.

2. You can typically access a WebDAV either with SSL (https) or without (http). The download just gives you a script to simplify making the connection instead of doing it manually. The choice you are referring to just downloads a different script based on how you wish to connect. iOF is still free to choose the manner in which it connects.

Hope this helps.

Peace.
