NAME ^

HTTP::DAVServer - allows you to write server-side functions to accept, process and respond to WebDAV client requests. WebDAV - RFC 2518 - is a protocol which allows clients to manipulate files on a remote server using HTTP.

SYNOPSIS ^

In your favorite NPH CGI script ( for now )

      use HTTP::DAVServer;
      HTTP::DAVServer->handle;

You will need to add directives to Apache to request that certain methods be handled by the CGI script:

      Script PROPFIND /cgi-bin/nph-webdav
      Script PUT      /cgi-bin/nph-webdav

See INSTALL for more details. See INSTALL for important warning!

MODULE STATUS ^

This module is a prototype. Please see INSTALL for important warnings. You should try this module if you're interested in developing a customized WebDAV server and you want to use Perl to do most or all of fancy footwork behind the scenes.

My short term goal is to provide a reference implementation of a WebDAV server which can be subclassed for specific implementation features. Information to resolve any of the following bugs is most welcome! I will be fixing all the failed items in copymove next.

Litmus test results:

    http and basic tests are good, some errors on copymove and propfind. proppatch not done so skips lots of tests.
