I'm encountering a problem in which when I connect to the WebDAV drive. it creates a folder named "webdav", this folder is not existing on the account. this does not occur on the sample code.

the codes I used on my application is the same as the sample code.

If the issue doesn't happen in the sample and happens in your code, then something *is* different. Unfortunately we can't say what you have in your code that causes the ghost folder - you should find it yourself.

I found the problem. it seems if you have an extra "/" at the end of the URL of the webdav, it creates the folder.

https://sample.dav.com/remote.php/webdav/ <--- wrong

https://sample.dav.com/remote.php/webdav <-- correct

Thank you very much for sharing your findings!

This sounds reasonable, as the first URL denotes a directory.

Sincerely yours
