WebDav does not work (Did not find initial path)


When trying to access my WebDav server (nginx with WebDav configuration) I get simple Error dialog with text "Did not find initial path"

Log from nginx: - martin [10/Feb/2017:11:48:49 +0100] "PROPFIND /dav/kp HTTP/1.1" 207 576 "-" "okhttp/3.4.1" 0.000 <"<?xml version=\x221.0\x22 encoding=\x22UTF-8\x22?>\x0A<d:propfind xmlns:d=\x22DAV:\x22>\x0A <d:prop><d:displayname/><d:ge

can you share the path which you entered in the URL field of the http dialog? If you don't want to do that, please mail to
