WebDAV Server

WebDAV Server provides a simple way to share / sync files via HTTP / WebDAV.

WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) allows clients to perform remote Web content authoring operations.

WebDAV Server lets you run the HTTP / WebDAV service on your Mac computer and you can access the files from other computers / devices with WebDAV-capable clients such as Finder or File Explorer.
You can press Command-K in Finder, enter the HTTP URL (e.g. and connect to WebDAV Server.

WebDAV Server comes with built-in authentication, so you don’t need to expose your computer accounts to anyone.

* Features

• Easy to use: you can simply select a folder to share (the server root) and start the WebDAV service without any additional configuration.
• Built-in authentication (basic authentication).
• Supports both HTTP and HTTPS (HTTP over SSL).
• All kinds of regular files supported: folders, documents, photos, movies, apps, backups and other files.

* Please restart the WebDAV service after changing the configurations / the WebDAV accounts.

Note: the default server root points to “/Users/*username*/Library/Containers/net.langui.WebDAVServer/Data/Documents/WebDAVShare”, you can press Command-G in Finder to go to the destination folder.
