Bring Your Own Server!
*Note this feature is only available for Firefox.
Xmarks allows you to use your own server to store bookmarks rather than those provided by Xmarks. Because Xmarks cannot troubleshoot issues with remote setups, the feature is provided as-is without support. Additionally, some features of Xmarks, such as managing bookmarks on http://my.xmarks.com/, are not available when using your own server.
To use your own server with Xmarks, you must have a writeable WebDAV location for each resource (bookmarks or passwords) that you wish to sync. Xmarks will read and write a single file at each location you specify.
Instructions for setting up a WebDAV server are beyond the scope of this document.
When you click the ‘Use own server’ checkbox, you are prompted for WebDAV URLs for bookmarks and passwords, and a username and password if your server requires HTTP authentication. An example configuration follows:
Bookmark URL: https://example.com/webdav/
Password URL: https://example.com/webdav/
Once you have set this up, you may perform an upload to store your current bookmarks and passwords on the remote server.
