This helped me resolve:
Was not using the correct port
@rfc2822 I would do that but there is no option to uncheck the addressbook
@Merat I guess we’re talking about different things. Can you post a screenshot of your DAVx⁵ account view (and your debug info)?
@rfc2822 I did not grant permissions since I did not want to sync the contacts :

Thanks for the debug info! There are no address book collections in your debug info, so DAVx⁵ won’t synchronize any contacts.
I’m sorry but I still don’t know what we’re talking about…
@rfc2822 here the (irritating) screenshot. Why did it show a carddav account?
@Merat Assuming you mean “CardDAV”: because your server said it offers CardDAV… but there are no collections, so it’s empty. You can try to create an address book with the action button next to “CardDAV” (☰) and see what happens
@rfc2822 okay, after reading the debug info myself, it became clear that it won’t sync my contacts. I was just confused that a carddav account showed up after initiating a caldav account - I was unsure if it might auto detect the url since user name and password are identical…
@Merat I see… well as said above, your server tells DAVx⁵ that it’s CardDAV-capable, so DAVx⁵ shows the CardDAV card plus it’s options. For instance, this could be a server where no address book has been created yet, and now you can use ☰ to create one.
@rfc2822 I granted permissions to access contacts on my phone and the carddav option shows the url to the caldav server (without a possibility to change the url to my carddav server - which would be nice for my private account)
So thanks for the calming explanations
