Unable to connect rclone with sharepoint webdav

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am unable to configure rclone to sharepoint site webdav. I am getting HTTP 405 error.
2022/08/18 16:24:21 ERROR : webdav root '': Statfs failed: 405 Method Not Allowed

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

[root@ocisg-rclone ~]# rclone --version

hello and welcome to the forum,

for testing, try a simple command rclone ls sharepoint:

Actually I got fixed this in another way. Got the config file created manually and pasted that in the rclone.conf which fixed the issue and I am able to mount the file system as well.
