WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning". It is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that lets users collaboratively edit and manage files on a remote web server.
You can use WebDAV to upload and access files in your site's Drop Box and Resources, if you have the required permissions.
Also, consider the following:
Note: Files with names that include the following characters cannot be accepted:
If your file's name contains one of these characters, change the filename before attempting to upload it.
Note: A known issue with WebDAV and Mac OS X 10.4 is preventing successful uploads to Resources and Drop Box. Developers are currently working on a solution, which they will release with a forthcoming update.
Using WebDAV to upload and access files in Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and earlier requires a third-party client called Goliath.
Note: Goliath has some known performance issues, and may not work 100% of the time. Because of this, only limited support is available if you experience problems.
You can download a free copy of Goliath from:http://www.webdav.org/goliath/installs/Goliath1_0_1.dmg.gz
Once you have downloaded the file, double-click it to decompress
it. Then, double-click the resulting
.dmg file. A disk
Goliath 1.0.1 should now be available. Then,
follow these steps:
Contact your site administrator for the URL's format, it will likely include the siteID for your site.
Note: For instructions on finding your siteID, see Determining your site's siteID.
The first time you attempt to connect, you may be prompted to
accept a certificate for the site. Click
OK if prompted.
You may now drag and drop folders between your computer and the sites to which you just connected.
