Mount a WebDAV resource as a regular file system

Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV), an extension to the HTTP-protocol, allows authoring of resources on a remote web server. davfs2 provides the ability to access such resources like a typical filesystem, allowing for use by standard applications with no built-in support for WebDAV.

davfs2 is designed to fully integrate into the filesystem semantics of Unix-like systems (mount, umount, etc.). davfs2 makes mounting by unprivileged users as easy and secure as possible.

davfs2 does extensive caching to make the file system responsive, to avoid unnecessary network traffic and to prevent data loss, and to cope for slow or unreliable connections.

davfs2 will work with most WebDAV servers needing little or no configuration.

davfs2 is developed and tested on GNU/Linux but porting to other free operating systems should not be too cumbersome.

Another Bug Fix Release 1.5.4
     posted by wbaumann, Sun 17 Apr 2016 07:46:50 PM UTC - 0 replies

Just after releasing 1.5.3 two important bugs showed up that needed fixing.
- mount.davfs frequently reads /proc/mounts. This is necessary with coda but not with fuse. When running two instances of mount.davfs using fuse these reads may trigger a kernel bug and create a deadlock.
- when mount.davfs receives SIGTERM it stops reading from the fuse device. In this case kernel fuse will make umount(8) hang forever.
Both bugs are fixed in release 1.5.4.
