Bug Description

I'm hosting my own ownCloud server.

It is set to only allow https and the certificate has been automatically produced by EFF's certbot (uses Let's Encrypt).

When I try to add an account:

URL: https://hosturl/owncloud
Username: username
Password: password

It stays on the same screen adding "invalid host url" at the top in red letters.

I have copied the address to my phone browser and logged in successfully there.

Looking on the internet I've seen people say that adding an owncloud account only works with http urls, but I have not tried doing so myself so I can't confirm.

This is a duplicate of:
But I think this is the appropriate place for the bug, rather than the calendar app.
