In this post, I will explain how to automatically mount your cloud folder with WebDAV. I will use GMX storage as an example (https://storage-file-eu.gmx.com/).
sudo apt-get install davfs2
Create the mounting point. For example
mkdir -p /home/username/gmx
You can connect the via the command straight away. You will be prompted for your username and password.
sudo mount -t davfs -o uid=me,gid=me https://storage-file-eu.gmx.com/ /home/username/gmx
This isn’t entirely convenient, though; it’s better to be able to mount the directory as a normal user. Now edit
/etc/fstab to setup a mount point by adding a line:
https://storage-file-eu.gmx.com/ /home/username/gmx davfs rw,noauto,user 0 0
Then setup the permissions of `davfs2′ to run as a non-root user.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure davfs2
Add your username to the correct group
usermod -a -G davfs2 username
Log out and in again to update the group information. Now you should be able to mount your share and work with your files.
mount /home/username/gmx umount /home/username/gmx
