davfs2 uses for logging the syslog function of the C-library, like this
syslog(LOG_MAKEPRI(LOG_DAEMON, LOG_DEBUG), "log message");

Whether this ends up in some log file is up to your system and davfs2 can't do anything about it. You may want to look for help at some CentOS forum.

Right config file?
/etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf is the system wide config file that is used when davfs2 is configured with prefix=/usr. This is usually the case for packages you get from your distribution.

If you build davfs2 from the source package provided on this server, then it is by default configured with prefix=/usr/local and the system wide configuration file is /usr/local/etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf.

I apologize for the misspelling but I obviously meant davfs2.conf etc.

I add "debug httpbody" to my /etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf file and then tried to mount something as root. I expected to see debug messages in /var/log/messages but I see nothing.

I then reconfigured rsyslog to put all 'daemon.*' in /var/log/daemon.log and again, nada.

How does one enable debug messages?

This is CentOS 6.8 x86-64 with davfs-1.4.7 and neon-0.29.6.
