I have recently been trying to access a remote directory over davfs2, and I have been running into quite a bit of trouble trying to make it work. After struggling with some crashes due to (apparently) corrupted davfs2.config file, I purged davfs2 from my system and reinstalled. This replaced my davfs2.config file back to the original. However, now when I execute the mount I get
mount -t davfs http://www.box.com/dav /media/user@box/ /sbin/mount.davfs: group davfs does not exist
Any suggestions on how to add the davfs group?
thanks for you continued assistance. I modified the mount call like you showed, and it still throws the same error as before:
$ sudo mount -t davfs https://dav.box.com/ /media/user@box/ /sbin/mount.davfs: group davfs does not exist
The df -h command you suggested didn't show any additional mounts in /media/user@box/
$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 100G 48G 47G 51% / none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup udev 3.7G 4.0K 3.7G 1% /dev tmpfs 751M 1.5M 750M 1% /run none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none 3.7G 12M 3.7G 1% /run/shm none 100M 44K 100M 1% /run/user /home/user/.Private 100G 48G 47G 51% /home/user
I verified that I have ownership of the "/media/user@box/ folder:
$ ls -a -l total 16 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Jan 27 23:13 . drwxr-xr-x 25 root root 4096 Jan 21 20:50 .. drwxr-x---+ 2 root root 4096 Jan 26 23:41 user drwxr-xr-x 4 mikey mikey 4096 Jan 27 14:04 user@box
but there is no /user@box/dev/ upload directory as you mentioned was on your system. Perhaps there is some set-up step to 'initialize' the /user@box/ directory to mount box to it? Beyond setting ownership?
One quick note, I feel fairly certain I have been to this point in the past and then tried to 'reset' and start from scratch again. It is possible that I made a mistake with some settings in the past and would need somehow reset. Is there any way to trace an error log? Any additional suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
edit: I tried modifying the /etc/fstab file as you suggested and when I run '$sudo mount -a' I get the same error as before.
