I'm trying to mount a webDAV share with this fstab line:
myserverip /media/myserver/ davfs noauto,user,rw 0 0
I have added the secret credentials to
sudo dpkg-reconfigure davfs2 to allow mounting by non-root users.
This all works fine if I have the following in
dav_user myusername # system wide config file only dav_group myusername # system wide config file only
But this obviously only works for one user, however if I leave it at the default:
dav_user davfs2 # system wide config file only dav_group davfs2 # system wide config file only
and add my user account to the group davfs2 via
sudo usermod -aG davfs2 myusername
which is successful as shown by the output of
myusername : myusername davfs2
However when I now try to mount the share I get the following error:
/sbin/mount.davfs: user myusername must be a member of group davfs2
So how do I get it to mount by group and why does it not recognize that I’m in the correct group.
