Works perfect with owncloud Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I followed Jhaar's instructions below and i have solution for the plugin always ask for the username and pasword.
steps:
1. In the plugin configuration the first link "Service Location" must be like this: httpX://YOUR_USERNAME:YOURPASSWORD@YOUR_OWNCLOUD_SITE/owncloud/remote.php/webdav/YOUR_SHARED_DIRNAME/
2. In the plugin configuration the second link "Public Location" must be like this: httpX://YOURS_SHARED_FOLDERLINK&path=/
That's all.

How does one get ahold of the developer? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I cant understand why this addon asks windows users to authenticate to owncloud every time that start the addon, Is that a windows issue, and owncloud issue or an issue with the addon? Is there any way around it? Really wish I could find an answer on this.

some hints for the apache server conf Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi,
if you don't want that somebody could make a directory listing of the webdav repository through the PROPFIND directive, you should add the following in the apache configuration:
<Directory your_directory_path>
AllowOverride None
# no directory listing with GET method
Options -Indexes
# no directory listing with webdav PROPFIND method
RequestHeader set Depth 0
</Directory>

This is rather pointless, as there already is NFS, SFTP, FTPS, … Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just mount your server's share directory with sshfs, curlftpfs, WebDrive, and copy the file over with your bog-standard file manager, like a normal person and like it was intended.

Then the FileLink add-on part can be reduced to

s/$mountpoint/$url/

e.g.

s|/home/evilmachine/www/share.evilserver.com/files/|http://share.evilserver.com/|

In other words: Congratulations. You re-invented the wheel. *Badly*.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

The intent for this addon if you have a hosting service or corp that provides webdav only. I really don't understand why you'd give this addon a bad review just because it doesn't match your use case and you'd rather upload the file using a different method.

The real question is, does this addon do what it advertises and does it do it correctly. There are users for this addon, if it were completely pointless then no one would use it.

Not working for me and ownCloud 6 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm giving this 3 stars because I see the two guys below got this working with ownCloud 6 so it's possible but so far I can't get it to work.
I followed Jhaar's instructions below but my urls are different. Mine are in the form of /mydomain/owncloud/public.php?service=files&amp;t=27cb1ead029695842f54069f233b5358 so I don't know where to break the link. I've tried various options but every time the flielink app says it "An error occurred while setting up the account" I've installed ownCloud6 on a shared hosted server. Would that be the problem?

work well with owncloud6 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm successfully using it to keep my files in owncloud6Hint: if you're willing to spend a minute, you can set this up so that TB uploads into a "public" area - so people without an owncloud account can download your attachments...First off, in your browser create a folder called "everyone" (or equivalent). Click the "Share" option on the folder and click "Share link" - and copy the exposed URL. Paste it into a new tab. Then upload some test file into the first tab, and refresh the second tab. Then use the "share" option on that test file to copy the url. Remove the "&path=filename" bit at the end.Then in webDAV for Filelink, use httpX://site/owncloud/remote.php/webdav/everyone/ as the first URL and that copied public URL as the 2nd. At the end of the 2nd URL put "&path=/", as when you use this plugin, it will append the filename to this URL. End result, you add an attachment in TB, it gets uploaded via webdav to OC6 and the attachment is replaced with the URL - sweet!

Remember password ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Using ownCloud it works fine, but for every attachment upload it prompts for user/pass. It will not prompt for "remember".

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As with Juan i experienced an error during setting up the config (exact same error).
Via the ErrorConsole i was able to find the issue: SSL-Certificate.
I was using different URLs for local and public access. Unfortunately the ssl-cert is only valid for the public address. Using the public URL only for the first entry, leaving the second empty, solved it.

Excellent work! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, i use it daily, thank you!

- Please update the official download to 1.2 (had to find the hard way after my filelink account has disappeared).
- It would be useful to be able to configure multiple WebDav storage places.
- If file already exists, perhaps check for size and do not reupload? Or at least give an option.
- Currently, there is no way to edit account credentials.

Keep up the great work!

Great works:
The only thing is I've tried using the Alfresco webdav and I get an error that is not reflected in the log of thunderbird (an error occurred configuring the account). I can indicate where to look?

Hi,
This is a really great extensions, what I needed to my self-hosting solution and keep my datas privates (no commercial services).
But, there is a bit problem, if you use something like owncloud, you can give full read access on the dav endpoint. Is it possible to find a solution ? Like create links from a pattern?
Anyway, thanks for you job!

Works great and is easy to setup.

There is a problem, however, that affects multiuser installations. Identical filenames are overwritten...

Do you plan any way of using subfolders for each user or file? A simple hash of the timestamp would be ok.

Thanks!

great idea but don't work as-is with Ajaxplorer webdav Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In my experience, the module can't log-in "as-is" with my Ajaxplorer webdav account.
But it's maybe an Ajaxplorer webdav configuration issue.
Otherwise, it will be great !
