WebDAV is the most popular way of mapping cloud drives on PC and Mac. It is an open standard protocol supported on all platforms. You just need to find a good WebDAV server.

DriveHQ is a leading Cloud File Server/WebDAV Drive Mapping service provider.

In this document, we will talk about how to configure Skyjos iOS File Explorer with DriveHQ's WebDAV Server. The information is also useful in configuring other WebDAV client applications.

Step 1: Get WebDAV Server / URL.

To use Skyjos iOS File Explorer with DriveHQ WebDAV Server, you must have a DriveHQ account first. If you don’t have a DriveHQ account, you can:

- Visit website to sign up for a free account. The free account does not expire, but it has some restrictions.

- If you are an administrator, you might want to create sub-accounts for your users, incl. employees and external clients. A sub-user of a paid Group Account is considered a paid account.

The next step is to create/get your secure WebDAV URL. Log on to website, then from the Start Menu, click "Drive Mapping URL". See the screenshots below. (Desktop browser and Mobile browser).
