davserver -WebDAV server implementation in Python
PyWebDAV is a WebDAV server implementation in Python. It’s aim is to
provide a simple interface to webdav services to any application which
needs it. It can be run as a daemon.
Specify a file where configuration is specified. In this file you
can specify options for a running server. For an example look at
the config.ini in this directory.
Directory where to serve data from. The user that runs this server
must have permissions on that directory. NEVER run as root! Default
directory is /tmp
Host where to listen on (default: localhost).
Port to bind server to (default: 8008).
Username for authentication.
Password for given user.
Pass parameter if server should not ask for authentication. This
means that every user has access.
Pass this parameter if you want MySQL based authentication. If you
want to use MySQL then the usage of a configuration file is
Activate experimental LOCK and UNLOCK mode (WebDAV Version 2).
Currently know to work but needs more tests. Default is ON.
Deactivate mimetype sniffing. Sniffing is based on magic numbers
detection but can be slow under heavy load. If you are experiencing
speed problems try to use this parameter.
If you want to run multiple instances then you have to give each
instance it own number so that logfiles and such can be identified.
Default is 0.
-d, --daemon ACTION
Make server act like a daemon. That means that it is going to
background mode. All messages are redirected to logfiles (default:
/tmp/pydav.log and /tmp/pydav.err). You need to pass one of the
following actions to this parameter, ’start’ to start the daemon,
’stop’ to stop the daemon, ’restart’ to restart the server, or,
’status’ to return the status of the server.
