I have a Secure WebDAV server that I need to connect to. I was unable to connect through the "connect to server..." option in the places menu. I was able to connect through command line by manually mounting the folder with the mount.davfs from the davfs2 package.

~$ sudo mount.davfs localdir
Please enter the username to authenticate with server or hit enter for none.
  Username: andrewredd
Please enter the password to authenticate user andrewredd with server or hit enter for none.

It successfully connects but how can I automate this so that I can reconnect at login every time.

got it working following this post with one fix: remove "www" from remote server name, wherever it in conf files.
