Apache Module mod_dav_fs

Available Languages:  en  |  fr  |  ja  |  ko 

Description:Filesystem provider for mod_dav
Module Identifier:dav_fs_module
Source File:mod_dav_fs.c


This module requires the service of mod_dav. It acts as a support module for mod_dav and provides access to resources located in the server's file system. The formal name of this provider is filesystem. mod_dav backend providers will be invoked by using the Dav directive:


Dav filesystem

Since filesystem is the default provider for mod_dav, you may simply use the value On instead.

Support Apache!

DavLockDB Directive

Description:Location of the DAV lock database
Syntax:DavLockDB file-path
Context:server config, virtual host

Use the DavLockDB directive to specify the full path to the lock database, excluding an extension. If the path is not absolute, it will be taken relative to ServerRoot. The implementation of mod_dav_fs uses a SDBM database to track user locks.


DavLockDB "var/DavLock"

The directory containing the lock database file must be writable by the User and Group under which Apache is running. For security reasons, you should create a directory for this purpose rather than changing the permissions on an existing directory. In the above example, Apache will create files in the var/ directory under the ServerRoot with the base filename DavLock and extension name chosen by the server.
