Connecting to Web Folders on Linux Systems

To connect a Web Folder as a network drive to your Linux-based computer using GNOME Nautilus file manager:

  1. Open the file browser.
  2. In the File menu, select Connect to Server.
  3. From the Service type menu, select either WebDAV (HTTP) or Secure WebDAV (HTTPS).

    To find out which option you need, ask your systems administrator.

  4. In the Server field, type the host name or IP address of your server.
  5. In the Folder field, type the path to your shared folder.

    To learn the location of your Web Folder, log in to Plesk, go to File Sharing, find and enter the required folder and click the Link to this folder icon in the upper right corner of File Manager. The link to current Web Folder will be shown in the opened window.

  6. Click Connect.
  7. The shortcut to the file share will be added to the Places pane. Click this shortcut.
  8. Specify the username and password that you use for logging in to Plesk.
  9. Select the option Remember password forever so that you would not have to type it every time you connect to the server.
  10. Click Connect.
