I had a working CalDAV and CardDAV account for URL looking like (Nextcloud

I changed the URL on my server to look like and everything works fine with other devices and browser.

If I now want to create a new CalDAV and CardDAV account on SailfishOS (both on my Jolla1 and JollaC), CalDAV fails with the following:

  • Creating account...
  • Connecting to server...
  • Getting calendar details...

"Oops, problem with account creation / Could not create account"

This happens whether I specify address book and calendar path or not, and also whether I select CardDAV or not.

If I don't select CalDAV though, it can create the account, but with enabling CalDAV later, no calendars can be loaded afterwards, so it is fairly useless.

Any ideas? I can get more detailed logs later if necessary.

UPDATE: include logs

MSYNCD_LOGGING_LEVEL=8 devel-su -p msyncd

output while creating account

devel-su journalctl -af | grep --line-buffered caldav

output while creating account:

Oct 04 16:27:35 Sailfish estart[15053]: [W] unknown:0 - writeProfileFile() called, forcing disk write: "/home/nemo/.cache/msyncd/sync/caldav-sync-115.xml"

UPDATE 2017-10-08: Any ideas how to debug this, anyone?

Can you attach logs when creating account please? Maybe also specify which server you are using.

Nextcloud 12 here. In my nextcloud calendar (web gui) my 'primary caldav address' is:

What is actually working for me is:

I have entered this link as url and left caldav(optional) empty and disabled carddav...

Got the hint from here:

Thanks! This solved it!

(Luckily carddav does not matter, one can just make another account as a workaround.)
