Subject Re: [users@httpd] how would I serve up an upload/download directory for each user
Date Sun, 09 Mar 2008 16:25:19 GMT
This should IMO really make it into the standard distribution, maybe  
even replace the webdav module. The main reason I don't use webdav is  
that its privilege model is useless for all I'd ever want to do with  
it (e.g. make user's home directory available to them as webdav mount  
while they are on the road).
I'll have to check this out, sounds just about what I've been looking
