webDAV server sync settings Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

After having problems trying to sync my mac OF with my webDAV shared server I have with Hostgator I read somewhere in the OF forums that I needed to specify 2078 (a port???) in the address in a format like this ;

This actually works great and I am able to successfully sync with my server - Yah!

Thinking I was home free, I just put this exact address in my iPhone so that I could also sync my iPhone OF with this same database server,

but it will not sync - Boo!

I just get back an error message - "Unable to synchronize database with server - timed out." What am I doing wrong? What can I do to get all my versions of OF synced with this database?

Same problem here. Can someone help?
I worked with the person that originally reported this problem; his Mac was always able to sync, but most of the time, his iPhone wasn't able to do so. (It would, on rare occasions, succeed.)

He also was unable to sync with a account - they provide free WebDAV accounts, and several of our customers use them to sync their data.

The problem looked to be something about their specific network setup - a firewall was blocking the phone from making a secure http connection, only specific devices were allowed to do WebDAV, or something like that. We never fully resolved the issue as far as I know, though.

My advice would be to set up an account on and see if you're similarly unable to sync with them. Once you know that, send an email to the support ninjas and we'll try to help.
