This doesn’t only necessarily happen with ‘/Projeto/htdocs/assets/dist’ it happens with any directory.

I’ve read that and I don’t seem to find a solution, however I tried to go to http://yourserver.com/owncloud/remote.php/webdav, and it says file not found on the page. I’ve checked the logs and nothing was out of normal I’ve only seen [OK]

What is the URL you entered in the client wizard? you don’t need to enter remote.php/webdav .

https://example.com/remote.php/webdav this time it worked and asked me to login. I logged in and it says This is the WebDAV interface. It can only be accessed by WebDAV clients such as the ownCloud desktop sync client.

Could you try to only enter https://example.com/ or https://example.com/owncloud/ ?

If I do the https://example.com/ it works and goes to the general login for the domain and i can access the files there.

I simply can not understand how my Acer Aspire A514-52G brand new doesn’t work with owncloud, I’ve bought it specifically to work with owncloud and some code. This thread is still open and I still need help!

So I downgraded from 2.6.4 to 2.5.4 as it seems that 2.6.4 is having some problems with Windows 10. It is working like a charm now! Thread Closed.

if a downgrading of the desktop client make things working again then i think it could make sense that you make the ownCloud team ware of a possible problem so that they can fix it. AFAIK they are reachable via https://github.com/owncloud/client/issues/

I also encountered the exact same problem on 2.6.0 windows client program.
Windows7 64 bit Japanese Language.

I want to report more precisely but it’s not possible to change the display language of client program to English. Anyway downgrading to 2.5.4 solves the problem. And I don’t want to upgrade it anymore.

Hey @ysugimura,

i think the following is still valid if this hasn’t been done yet. Just hoping that some one else is doing this or that it is “fixed by itself” in the future doesn’t look to me like a good idea :frowning_face:

Ok tom42 I’ll try 2.6.1 when released. If the problem reappears I’ll report it.
Anyway didn’t get details yet just a screenshot only.
