I had again a detailed look. The problem is not related to webdav at all! Sorry!

The problem was that inside /root (~) a folder had been created by a faulty ansible-task with the name of the server-url.

This could be closed! Thanks for your support and your work on davfs2!

This sounds very strange. There is no code concerning the parsing of the url that depends on the working directory. Most probly some  problem that is not related to the url at all.

Please try to mount and send to me:

  • the complete unchanged command line, including the prompt
  • every bit of the output you get

Mak sure that there is no entry in /etc/fstab, neither for the mount point nor for the url.

As root if I want to mount webdav and the current location is the homedirectory /root (~) I get:

"/sbin/mount.davfs: invalid URL"

This doesn't occur from any other location. This happens when I mount manually as well a if I am adding an entry to /etc/fstab

https://XXX /backup davfs rw,user,noauto,uid=root,gid=root 0 0

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
