WebDAV is a technology that has been around since the mid 90’s designed to make web documents readable and writable. Similar to FTP and SFTP, WebDAV protocols allow users to create, change, and move documents. Each flavor of operating system has their own way to incorporate WebDav locations which mount rather seamlessly into most file browsers.

WebDav requires files to be owned by the web server user. This means there could be ownership issues if both FTP and WebDAV are used simultaneously. As WebDav files are owned by the web server user, they may not execute without changing the user names.


Assuming Apache is already installed, enable the modules for WebDAV:

Web Directory

Normally, Apache on linux puts web directories under /var/www/. Create a directory in this location and change the user to www-data, the apache user.

WebDAV Password

The WebDAV directory should be password protected.

Virual Host

Under /etc/apache2/sites-available/webdav create a new virtual host.

Restart Apache
