WebDAV-WebDAV stands for (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning), which is a web server feature where the client or user can manage / manage content on a website server. WebDAV gives us a way to access files or folders on the website that we want to access. WebDAV is defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force working group in RFC 4918.

The WebDAV1 protocol provides a framework for users to create, modify, and move documents on the server. collections, and overwriting protection. Features include maintenance, creation, deletion and request for file information. Namespace management deals with the ability to copy and move web pages in the server namespace. Collections related to creating, deleting, and listing various sources. Finally, overwrite protection overcomes the problem associated with locking files. Many modern operating systems provide client-side support for WebDAV.

WebDAV supports the following features:

Editing: Create, update, and delete files.
Properties: You can set, delete, and retrieve metadata.
Collections: Group file systems, similar to directory or desktop folders.
Locking: Prevents others from editing the same content you work on WebDAV

History :

WebDAV began in 1996 when Jim Whitehead, a doctor from UC Irvine, studied while working with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to host two meetings to discuss with people interested in the World Wide Web. [1] [2] Web Berners-Lee's original vision included tools for reading and writing. In fact, Berners-Lee's first web browser, WorldWideWeb, can display and edit web pages; However, as the Web grows, it becomes a read-only environment for most users. Whitehead and like-minded people want to overcome this limitation. [3]

The meeting led to the creation of an IETF working group because new efforts would lead to extensions to HTTP, which began to be standardized by the IETF.

When working on the protocol, it becomes clear that using both distributed authoring and shared versions will require a lot of work, and that tasks must be separated. The WebDAV group has focused on distributed distribution and has stopped releasing it for the future. (More recent Delta-V extensions are added - see Add-ons below.)

The WebDAV working group, the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG), completed its work in March 2007 after receiving additional updates to RFC 2518. The BIND method was completed by the author as another extension, which was then incomplete. independent

Application :

WebDAV extends the standard verbs and HTTP titles that are permitted for the request method. The verbs added are:

copy resources from one URI to another
put the key on the source. WebDAV supports shared and private keys.
create collection (directory a.k.a)
move resources from one URI to another
Get properties stored as XML from web resources. It is also overloaded to allow remote systems to accept aggregation structures (also known as directory hierarchies).
Change and delete some properties from the source in an atomic transaction
Remove key from the source

Server support WebDAV :

  • Provides WebDAV modules based on the Apache HTTP Server, davfs, and Apache Subversion (svn) methods.
  • IIS Microsof
  • Nginx has very limited optional
  • SaberDAV is a PHP application that can be used in Apache or Nginx instead of the package module
  • ownCloud is a PHP cloud storage application that offers ful
  • Nextcloud is a PHP cloud storage application that offers full
  • lighttpd has an optional WebDA
  • Caddy has an optional WebDAV

Client support WebDAV :

  • Go supports writing to HTTP remote control, but Git's "smart" protocol for HTTP, which requires special server support, has become the preferred protocol than WebDAV
  • GNOME files, including through GVfs and through KIO, include Konqueror and Dolphin
  • MacOS includes WebDAV-based local support for CalDAV and CardDAV
  • Microsoft Windows includes local support in Explorer
  • WebDAV Support Microsoft Office
