Python Question

How can I connect to owncloud with python using easywebdav?

I'm trying to connect to a

owncloud
instance with python.
I've found
easywebdav
that should make it easy to connect via webdav, but when trying to connect I'm getting "404 Not Found"

import easywebdav
webdav = easywebdav.connect('test.org/owncloud/remote.php/webdav/', username='user', password='pass', protocol='https', port=443, verify_ssl=False)
print webdav.ls(".")


I would expect a list of files found on my owncloud instance, but I'm getting

python ./test.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./test.py", line 8, in <module>
print webdav.ls(".")
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/easywebdav-1.0.7-py2.7.egg/easywebdav/client.py", line 131, in ls
response = self._send('PROPFIND', remote_path, (207, 301), headers=headers)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/easywebdav-1.0.7-py2.7.egg/easywebdav/client.py", line 81, in _send
raise OperationFailed(method, path, expected_code, response.status_code)
easywebdav.client.OperationFailed: Failed to list directory ".".
Operation : PROPFIND .
Expected code : 207 UNKNOWN, 301 Moved Permanently
Actual code : 404 Not Found


What I find weird, is that if I connect to a invalid path, with

webdav = easywebdav.connect('test.org/owncloud-not-existent/', ......)


I get

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./test.py", line 8, in <module>
print webdav.ls(".")
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/easywebdav-1.0.7-py2.7.egg/easywebdav/client.py", line 131, in ls
response = self._send('PROPFIND', remote_path, (207, 301), headers=headers)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/easywebdav-1.0.7-py2.7.egg/easywebdav/client.py", line 81, in _send
raise OperationFailed(method, path, expected_code, response.status_code)
easywebdav.client.OperationFailed: Failed to list directory ".".

Actual code : 405 Method Not Allowed

Answer

I've tested with a personal WebDav server and I found a similar issue, although I think that my easywebdav version is different, I use v1.0.7 and the parameter verify_ssl is not allowed, so I did the test with "http".

Anyway, I got to reproduce your issue, to fix it change the connection url and use only the host, putting the path in the ls() command :

import easywebdav
webdav = easywebdav.connect('test.org', username='user', password='pass', protocol='https', port=443, verify_ssl=False)
print webdav.ls("/owncloud/remote.php/webdav")
