Add WebDAV as default service

#1

Post by raulfg3 » 18 Feb 2017 09:25

I think that is a very good addon for services to add WebDAV so user can select a shared folder to upload/download in a easy way.


A usefull howTo do by hand is : viewtopic.php?f=48&t=6158&p=58151


But a small webGUI to select shared folder and automatic creation of webdav user and group are wellcome.

actually ownclod/nextcloud installed in a VM (Virtualization > VirtualBox) runs quit well if you spend the time setting it up in a proper way and allows mounting webdev shares.

I find it uses very little resources and is a better option than trying to install it locally.

I also am not trying to support very many users.

Could you clarify what use cases WebDAV would be useful?

Using WebDAV with local cloud service provider (for automated backup upload) I had to carefully fine tune session parameters, especially timeout after big file (2 GB) upload. Now it is set to 180 seconds (in upload scripts), otherwise I get a connection break.

for me, to download / upload movie files to my brother ( and my brother to my NAS) NAS separated 60KM, I use his webdav and is very simply but it have synology NAS and is easy to configure webdav on it, in N4F is not really easy.

To exchange raw video files with my sister (and for me on the go) I've set up OpenVPN server on the border router and simply upload/download files using Samba. In addition I can securely manage remote NAS, home PC and router itself without opening too many ports in the firewall.

I tried ownCloud but experienced data loss with it. It was synchronising a nested directory when I renamed one of its parent directories. It thought the tree had been deleted, and so deleted the files that had been at that path. Apparently it's a known bug, but it was enough to stop me using it again. Renaming isn't an extraordinary operation, and inappropriately erasing user files is drastic.

Neocities uses webDAV instead of FTP, considering FTP dated and insecure. Several linux filemanagers can mount webDAV resources to a mountpoint, making them just as accessible as a samba share, FTP server, or local disk.

A freestanding webDAV service would have its uses, but unless its implementation space was truly tiny, there are good reasons against adding Services.
