Steps to reproduce

  1. enable webdav on the owncloud frontend, get the WebDAV enpoint (say
  2. mount the webdav using davfs2 (apt-get install davfs2; mount -t davfs -o username=anarcat m
  3. sync files into the m directory

Expected behaviour

Files are uploaded and they are fully "there".

Actual behaviour

They look like they are present, but actually, they are empty in the frontend. The webdav mountpoints lists the proper size however.

This is similar to #968 but it still happens and affects the davfs2 client on Debian.

I have been able to work around the problem with:

use_locks 0

in /etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf. Source:

Now it looks like the workaround works, but i suspect it may mean the filesystem becomes inconsistent. For example, after unmounting the directory where the webdav is mounted, the mount.davfs process is still running and churning through the file upload - and the files are simply missing from the frontend.

did you rather mean #11041?

i'll try to dig that out for you.

well, i can't reproduce from this Debian Jessie client, no clue why, so I can't provide logs or test the patch.

I guess I'll just close this.. :/
