WebDAV Client

WebDAV client for web folders is a utility that supports data transmission, using standard WebDAV protocol. Such programs are tied to the operating system that is installed on the user’s computer.

WebDAV clients can be divided into:

  • Native Windows clients.
  • Third-party clients.

  • Windows Explorer
  • BitKinex
  • NetDrive
  • WebDrive

WebDAV Ubuntu clients:

  • Dolphin
  • Nautilus
  • Firefox

Since WebDAV protocol is very tricky, is not so easy to understand how it works under Linux. Here is a useful advice, how to set up work with webDAV:

First of all, you need to install davfs2 package (# - root commands; $ for UserName’s commands).

Then, # modprobe coda

Test root mounting

1. # mkdir /mnt/DAV

2. # mount.davfs2 https://dav.test.com/share/ /mnt/DAV

3. # umount /mnt/DAV

Allow users to mount the repository

1. Add username to the users group, and relog it if needed

2. $ mkdir ~/.davfs2/ ~/mnt/DAV/

3. # cp /etc/davfs2/secrets ~username/.davfs2/

4. # chown username: ~username/.davfs2/secrets

5. Add the credentials to ~username/.davfs2/secrets following comments in there: https://dav.test.com/share username SeCret

6. As root add the following line in /etc/fstab: https://dav.test.com/share /home/username/mnt/DAV/ davfs2 user,noauto 0 0 That done, UserName should be able to mount the repository using: mount /home/username/mnt/DAV/

Thus, you can use Handy Backup as webDAV client, but this is only a small part of its powerful features. Also, find out How to Mount WebDAV Cloud Storage. Besides the backups, you can use it with your favorite cloud service.
