How to transfer photos to Nextcloud?

To transfer photos to/from a Nextcloud personal cloud server you need to create a secure WebDAV connection with NextCloud. To get the connection information open a web browser and login into your Nextcloud server. Go to the Files section and click on the Settings button in the bottom left of the screen. This will show a text field containing an URL to connect to your Nextcloud server via WebDAV. That URL and the user credentials are all you need to create a connection to your Nextcloud server with PhotoSync.

Login The username to connect to the Nextcloud server
Password The password to connect to the Nextcloud server
Directory The path that is shown in the Nextcloud settings after the server name, e.g. ien8ooqu/remote.php/webdav/
