(S)FTP/SCP to WEBDAV Bridge/Gateway?

I have an application that can only transfer it's files to an (S)FTP or SCP destination. But (suppose) I only have storage to which I can connect to via WEBDAV. Is there a way I could make this work?
Basically what I'm looking for is an (S)FTP/SCP to WEBDAV Bridge/Gateway, which I would then host on a LowEndBox, but I couldn't find anything (doable) myself so far...

Thanks!

    You could use Owncloud / Nextcloud for the WebDAV part and simply mount your storage either directly in the system or by using the external storage feature.

    /EDIT/
    Just to try to give a full answer: the above mentioned approach should work with any service proving WebDAV support, i.e. a simple Apache server or caddy server.

  • Maybe I'm missing something - I'm not familiar with WEBDAV -, but can't you mount your WEBDAV destination on your bridge VPS and connect via SFTP to the mounted folder?

    Here is an example on how to mount using DavFS:

    https://espace.cern.ch/winservices-help/DFS/WebDAV/Pages/UsingDavfsOnOlderLinux.aspx

    DavFS installation via Yum and sync via rsync
    
    yum install davfs2
    mkdir /dfs
    cat $PASSWORD | mount.davfs https://dfs.cern.ch/dfs /dfs -o username=$USERNAME
    rsync somefolder/* /dfs/somedfslocation/
    umount.davfs
    rmdir /dfs​

    Forget what I said above, I mixed it up and read is as the other way round...

    That might work indeed :) Thank you!

  • Hmm, isn't that the other way around?

    "rclone serve webdav implements a basic webdav server to serve the remote over HTTP via the webdav protocol. This can be viewed with a webdav client, through a web browser, or you can make a remote of type webdav to read and write it." https://rclone.org/commands/rclone_serve_webdav/

    well, there is also rclone serve ftp and rclone serve sftp

    You could do rclone serve sftp webdav:
