DAVfs Linux file system driver

The DAVfs Linux file system driver (a.k.a davfs2) is a Linux file system driver that allows you to mount a WebDAV server as a disk drive. WebDAV is an extension to HTTP/1.1 that allows remote collaborative authoring of Web resources, defined in RFC 2518. DAVfs allows a remote Web server to be edited using standard applications that interact with the file system. For example, a remote Web site could be updated in-place, using the same development tools that initially created the site. DAVfs also supports SSL.
