Can't sync with WebDAV on Synology


Recommended Posts


I need your help. I want to sync my database with / on my Synology NAS but I don't get it.

On the Synology I installed WebDAV like here: https://www.synology.com/en-global/knowledgebase/DSM/tutorial/File_Sharing/How_to_access_files_on_Synology_NAS_with_WebDAV

On Enpass I use the path and the user and password from my Synology-user.


I don't get an error or something. It just didn't do anything (on Windows PC or Android). On Android I just see the rotating circle and on Windows PC just "connect" is shown.


What's wrong? I didn't see any mistake.


Thanks in advance.

I have a similar problem.

I want to sync Enpass Pro on my iPhone with my Synology DiskStation using the enclosed path: https:mydomain.synology.me:5006/home/cloudstation/enpass

WebDAV works fine with Finder (Go to server ...) using https:mydomain.synology.me:5006, hence I assume WebDAV is configured properly.

After putting in the credentials I get asked if i want to accept the unsafe connection. After accepting I receive an error message stating not being able to connect to the given WebDAV folder.

Problems here as well.

Sync works one time only on ALL my devices, have to disconnect and reconnect to get it working, its a real pain.

WebDAV is working on Finder, but fails, on Enpass Mac, iPhone, iPad.

Hi @Anshu kumar and @meme,

seems like it's an issue with CloudStation.

As an online connection is somehow a prerequisite while using Enpass it is not really neccessary to me to sync with CloudStation.

Hence I decided to store the enpass file with my home folder by using this path: https:mydomain.synology.me:5006/home/

By choosing this new path Enpass creates the folder "enpass" in my home folder and stores the walletx-file there.

Everything works fine now. I can sync this singel walletx-file with my Mac, my iPhone and iPad.

Except I am not using CloudStation, I enable WebDAV, I also do not prefer to use CloudStation for this.


I Just removed the WebDAV sync on my Mac and enabled it again, now my iPhone also works again. I dont get it what is going on.

@DDD and @meme

I'm not a professional, but I assume your Diskstation must be available via internet.

I recommend to set up a free account at https://account.synology.com/.

Once connected you need to ensure the required ports are forwarded by your router to your Diskstation, for WebDAV the port is 5006.

Furthermore you got to ensure to grant the specific user the rights to use WebDAV within the system controll settings of Diskstation (see screenshots, unfortunately in german).

Guys, there is no need to connect it to the internet for webdav. Also I just want to use Webdav within my LAN, and there is really no reason why it shouldn't work.

Let me also make clear, everything works, but just once! Every single time I need disconnect and reconnect.

Hi @NieChe

Thanks for writing in. Please have a look at our FAQ to set up sync with WebDAV.

If your problem still persists, please share some more info so that we can help you in a better way.

  • On which device (Along with OS version) are you using Enpass?
  • Which Enpass version are you using?
  • While syncing what error message or code are you getting?

It would be really helpful if you can share a demo account of your WebDAV so that we can investigate where the problem could be.

Thanks for your co-operation!

I had similar problems and found out that this path worked for me:


(let SYNCPATH replace the path that you are using for the enpass files on your drive)

I do have the same problem as meme and trying this only results in nesting of Enpass folders. I´m able to conntect to all Folders via CMD+K on my Mac and using http://IP:5005/web/web_enpass/ does work – Enpass creates a Folder (named "Enpass") with the walletx-file. But only this first sync is working - to sync again I have to disconnect Enpass and reconnent again. Every time - as meme already described. Pressing the sync button only results in a 1-second loading animation. There are no errors, neither in Enpass or the macOS Console.

Can´t provide a demo account as our Diskstations isnt reachable over internet. We´re using a DS415+ with the newest DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 3.

Hello @farbschmelz

Sorry to hear about the trouble you're going through. But it seems that sync is working fine here. 

Actually, Last Synchronized and Last Attempt are two different timings. Last Synchronized shows the interval when the latest successful data is synced and file update on the cloud. While the Last Attempt shows the time interval for the latest check for changes. So there might be different time intervals for both timings.

For Testing Purpose: Make some sample changes in one device like mark any item to favorite, add a new item, add a new folder. Now check if the changes are reflected on other devices and make sure Date and Time are same (preferably, set it to automatic) on all devices.

Hi Akash,

thanks! You are totally right. Tested it (should have done it earlier ..) and everything works fine. May I suggest to alter the translation for the german version a little bit? The "Letzer Versuch" in combination with "Zuletzt synchronisiert" leads to the assumption that Enpass tried to sync but it didn´t work (somehow). Maybe "Letzte Prüfung" instead of "Letzter Versuch" would be a little less misleading.

Thanks again!

Kind Regards,
