Setting up davfs2 with the Ubuntu package


A new la entry has been added:

Setting up davfs2 with the Ubuntu package

Quote:
Webdav is probably one of the most useful tools that I have ever used. It allows you to open and edit documents directly on a webserver. Windows users know this as web folders. There used to be a internet company called X drive but I don't know if they still exist.

Davfs complements this ability on Linux by allowing you to mount the webdav folder as if it is a local drive. This is necessary as some applications, notably OpenOffice and Lotus Notes, will not save to a url. They must have a mounted folder where they save the document.
