Finding your login information 1. Go to Design, then click on the WebDAV button.

WebDAV button in the Design area

2. You will see the following login information:

  • WebDAV Path - the path (server) of your store, which will be your store's temporary URL followed by /dav
  • WebDAV Server Type - WebDAV (HTTPS/SSL) - the type of server used
  • WebDAV Username - this will be the store owner's email address
  • WebDAV Password - this will be a long string of random numbers and letters
WebDAV credentials page

3. If you need to create another account that can access WebDAV, you can do so by creating a user and enabling WetDAV. Use the new user's email address for the user name, and the password in that user's WebDAV section for the WebDAV password. The Path and Server Type will be the same.

Does this article still stand for my homestead account? I wish to use Dreamweaver to connect and make more advanced changes not capable by the built in system but I can't find any WebDAV connection services within the control panel, the links above to bigcommerce are 404.

This topic only applies to Bigcommerce stores.

To upload a Dreamweaver site, you would use the Sitebuilder file manager

This does not work... been trying since the start of the switch and no advice or directions have gotten me into webdav and it's quite frustrating that bigcommerce support cannot help us because of homestead.... and homestead can't help us because they don't know how to troubleshoot efficiently.

What error are you receiving? Also, what program are you using to connect into your Bigcommerce store with?
