Introduction

WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a set of extensions to the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that enable user agents to collaboratively author contents directly in an HTTP web server by providing facilities for concurrency control and namespace operations, allowing the Web to be viewed as a writeable, collaborative medium rather than just a read-only medium.

For added convenience, you can mount your seedbox filesystem on your local device using WebDAV. Let us demonstrate how you can accomplish this.

Note: Please keep in mind that this is currently only available on our Premium seedboxes.

Open your Client Area and from there go to your seedbox services, and you need to grab the IP of your seedbox

Linux

After you copied the IP as shown above depending on what Desktop Environment (DE) you use you can open your File Manager and look for Add Network Folder or something similar.

I'm using KDE Plasma (DE) so I got the Dolphin File Manager.

Choose WebDAV and click Next

In the server address space, you have to enter the IP address you copied, similar to this one

192.168.12.32

Keep in mind that these are the specific directories available to mount via WebDAV by default. If you need others enabled please reach us via chat!

http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Documents
http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Downloads
http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Torrents
http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Watch

You will now need to supply your user password.

And there you are, connected.

If you're using the Gnome DE, you probably have the Nautilus File Manager and the same steps apply here as well.

And here's your mounted WebDAV share.

Last but not least, there's also a CLI method of doing this, by using the cadaver utility

apt update
apt install cadaver

And then

cadaver http://45.152.211.228:8088/user/Watch

Windows

When mounting a WebDav share on Windows 10/11 (which is most commonly used) you can easily do it by opening either the Windows Terminal or just PowerShell and typing the next

net use z: http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Downloads

Or any other of the mounts that are available by default

http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Documents
http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Downloads
http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Torrents
http://seed.box.ip.addr:8088/user/Watch

Note: You can use any available letter instead of Z: . That's used just to tell the system that you want to mount the share under the Z: path.

Then you can open the File Manager and access/manage the share directly from there.

if you want to disconnect you can right-click on it and click Disconnect.

MacOS

Coming soon...!

I don't know what to do next...
