Helping Andy share info for his wedding, I set up DAV under apache 2. The config looks really friendly:

<IfModule mod_dav.c> DavLockDB /tmp/DavLockDB DavMinTimeout 600 </IfModule> <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "/var/www/" ServerName <Directory "/var/www/"> Dav On Options Indexes AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/_vhost-base </VirtualHost>

This works without problem for cadaver. However, Andy's windows XP couldn't connect to ''. It turns out that XP (surprise) needs special attention because it actually needs the webfolder url to end in a hash mark. I.e. I mapped the webfolder's url as '' and XP finally understood what was happening.
