It seems when running a make install the default location for the settings file is /usr/etc/dav2fs instead of /etc/dav2fs while the dav2fs from apt-get uses /etc/dav2fs.

This confused me.

I compiled and installed the latest davfs2 version 1.5.4 on Ubuntu.

With version 1.5.2 the ~/.davfs2/secrets file was used but now I get a prompt to enter the credentials manually.

To get it work I now use this workaround:

echo -ne 'username\npassword\n' | mount -t davfs https://storage.stackstorage.com/remote.php/webdav/ /mnt/stack

But imo davfs2 should use the secrets file instead like 1.5.2 did.
