Get WebDAV-Sync at Fast, secure and Free Open Source software downloads


Run the binary as follows:

  java -jar webdav_sync.jar [-h] [-i seconds] \
    (-c config_file | [-e comma_separated_patterns] \
    (-down|-up|-bi) -u URL -d directory)

For Xythos you should add before the -jar.

Writes the command synopsis on the terminal.
An interval in seconds. When set the tool loops forever and executes the synchronization every interval.
A configuration file with the following form:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
        <!-- Optional ACL for upload. -->
        <acl xmlns="DAV:">
        <exclude>filename pattern 1</exclude>
        <exclude>filename pattern 2</exclude>

See RFC 3744 for the ACL syntax.

An optional comma-separated list of filename patterns. Files that match a pattern are excluded from the synchronization.
The synchronization direction.
The URL.
The local directory.

Use it as an Ant task through the taskdef element:

    classpath="<directory>/webdav_sync.jar" />

The Ant task has five parameters: directory, url, excludes, which is a list of filename patterns, and direction, which can be down, up or bi. The parameters recur and excludes are optional.

The URL might require a username and a password. You can specify it in the URL like this: https://username:password@hostname/.... Note that if the username or the password contain characters that must not appear in the URL at that place, they should be escaped using URI-encoding. For example, @ should be %40, : becomes %3a, etc. See also

A safer method is to configure it with UIVI. On the Settings tab go to the subtab URL Authentications and append a row with the pop-up menu.

A non-compliant server might respond with a "Bad Request". This usually means it doesn't support compression, but responds with a 400 instead of a 415, which is what normal content negotiation prescribes. You can add "" to the beginning of the command-line and file a bug report at the provider of your server.
