How do I set up WebDAV for Mac (OS 10.8 and up)?

You can upload and/or download resources using the WebDAV protocol. WebDAV allows you to transfer files and folders from your local computer to and from your site’s Network Location.

Due to an issue with the Mac Finder tool, users currently cannot upload files into their sites using the Finder. If you use a Mac and you need to upload files into your sites, you should download and install Cyberduck for Mac (opens new window).

From the Finder, select Go from the menu bar, and Connect to Server…

  1. From the Finder, select Go from the menu bar.
  2. Select Connect to Server…

In the resulting dialog box, paste the WebDAV URL.

In the Server Address box, paste the WebDAV URL you copied from FreeNAS.


Press the plus (+) button to save this path for future use.

Select Connect.

Enter your username and password, click Connect.

You will first get a warning about connecting to an unsecured connection. Click Connect.

You will then be prompted to log in.

  1. In the Name box, enter the username (webdav)
  2. In the Password box, type in the password you created within the WebDAV service in FreeNAS.
  3. Select Connect.

You can now drag files and folders to and from your computer and the UVACollab site’s folder.

You can drag, drop, edit and delete files in your network location folder as you would files that are saved on your computer.

Note: If you have permission to read content in a network location, you can download multiple files via WebDAV by dragging the files from the site’s folder to a folder on your local computer. You can only save, edit or delete files in the selected network location if you have the appropriate permissions in the location.
