I have created a little php application which upload a file by using curl to make a webdav call using PUT method. That's working great.
However, I can't manage to use API to create a folder (the idea is to create a folder from php and then upload the file on this new folder).
I have read that I should use OCP instead of OCS or webdav. Also I think I have found the documentation of the function that I have to all: https://doc.owncloud.org/api/classes/OCP.Files.Folder.html#method_newFolder but I haven't found any example on how can I make this call from php.
Could anyone show me an example?
You just need to do a WebDAV call doing a MKCOL, similar how you do the PUT.
Thank you for your answer. I tried but it doesn't seem to work.
I have done this by linux command-line:
curl -X MKCOL "https://myserver/remote.php/webdav/existing_folder/new_folder" -k -u my_user:mypassword
After this call I'm getting this answer:
301 Moved Permanently
The document has moved here.
Apache/2.4.10 (Debian) Server at myserver Port 80
But when I login on owncloud with my credentials (myuser / mypassword, according to the example) I can't see the folder.
What I'm doing wrong?
This is really strange, but moving the -X MKCOL option to the end seems to make it work.
So, it's working now. Thank you!!
I am trying to create a folder using owncloud API in java. I get "pkix path building failed sun.security.provider.certpath.suncertpathbuilderexception" because I guess org.apache.commons httpClient cannot trust this server. I tried to solve this by registering self signed certificate to CloseableHttpClient. But I guess CloseableHttpClient does not support jackrabbit MKCOL. Any suggestions on how I can solve this?
the url https://doc.owncloud.org/api/classes/OCP.Files.Folder.html#method_newFolder is down, could you please help me?, i need create a folder but i don´t know how.
thanks in advance
i’m not sure if the documentation would help you.
If i’m understanding the following post correctly you should use WebDAV methods instead:
From what i have read in the past the API provided by ownCloud for file operations like uploading/creating/deleting files and folders is WebDAV.
you can do it using commands.. .
