    I followed instructions http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-owncloud-7-on-ubuntu-14.04 And, I thouht I had it working as evidenced by being able to access my cloud from another system. Later having been away for a while, I tried setting it up for local access on the Owncloud server following instructions starting at #4 of tutorial, After being away from this project for a while, I came back and noticed that when I opened a terminal window, I got the following

    Please enter the username to authenticate with server or hit enter for none.
    Username: ocuser
    Please enter the password to authenticate user ocuser with server or hit enter for none.
    /sbin/mount.davfs: the server certificate does not match the server name
    /sbin/mount.davfs: the server certificate is not trusted
    issuer: ubuntu
    subject: ubuntu
    identity: ubuntu
    fingerprint: a4:6b:f6:29:46:c7:0e:ea:91:82:9d:cb:d9:8d:39:d1:cb:70:c3:f0
    You only should accept this certificate, if you can
    verify the fingerprint! The server might be faked
    or there might be a man-in-the-middle-attack.
    Accept certificate for this session? [y,N] y
    /sbin/mount.davfs: Mounting failed.
    Could not read status line: Secure connection truncated

    I'm entering the correct username and password in the above sequence but no matter what I try I cannot get past this apparent error. For reference, my fstab entry is: /home/hec/owncloud davfs user,rw,noauto 0 0

    What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance...

    Please check the permissions of the directory, as mention in the tutorial.

    Thanks. I tried permissions on owncloud folder as follows:

    4 drwxrwxr-x 2 hec hec 4096 Nov 9 16:16 .
    4 drwxr-xr-x 73 hec hec 4096 Dec 15 18:55


    4 drwxrwxr-x 2 ocuser ocuser 4096 Nov 9 16:16 .
    4 drwxr-xr-x 73 hec hec 4096 Dec 15 18:55

    Both hec and ocuser are Owncloud users. No difference
