Chapter 27. Web Serving > WebDAV—mod_dav

WebDAV—mod_dav

Something that Apple hasn't advertised with Mac OS X is the integration of WebDAV as a native file-sharing format. WebDAV (Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a relatively new protocol that operates on top of HTTP. What makes this attractive is the fact it doesn't require additional inetd or system daemons to be present.

WebDAV is entirely cross-platform, is integrated into the Windows operating system, and supported natively in software such as Macromedia Dreamweaver as well. Using WebDAV, you can distribute authoring and editing Web sites across a number of different computers and operating systems. Best of all, WebDAV is easy to use and, because it operates through Apache, the same configuration directives you've already seen can apply directly to its setup.
