WebDAV server installation

I need to install a WebDAV server on my WinXP computer.

The project consists in finding a WebDAV server implementation according to my requirements given below, and to describe step by step how to install it.

Attention: I don't want you to implement a WebDAV server! I want you to find one that is already implemented.

Requirements:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

- The WebDAV server works under MsWinXP.

- The WebDAV clients integrated in WinXP and MacOSX work with the selected WebDAV server.

- The shared folders (the WebDAV store) are specified in a configuration file (other solutions can be proposed)

- The authentication configuration is specified in a configuration file (other solutions can be proposed)

- When people puts files in the WebDAV store, those files are stored as files in the server, and not inside a database.

- If the WebDAV server is using a container (such as Apache or Tomcat),

all the website functionality must be disabled (except for the WebDAV store).

- It must be secure.

For instance, if the WebDAV server is using a container such as Apache or Tomcat,

the user should not be able to upload a file and execute it afterwards inside my server

(for instance, a cgi, pearl, php, jsp or servlet application)

- It does not require IIS (Ms Internet Information Server)

- If it requires a database (for the props, not for the files),

it cannot use a database server such as Ms SQL server or Mysql

(It can use a database library, such as sqllite, berkeleydb or derbydb)

- The implementation needs to be open-source, and cannot be a dead project.

The project consists in finding a WebDAV server implementation according to my requirements given below, and to describe step by step how to install it.

Here there is an example of an hypothetical step by step installation that I would require.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1. Download http://somehost/[url removed, login to view]

2. Unzip it to c:webdavserver

3. Edit c:[url removed, login to view] as following:

++++ [url removed, login to view] ++++++++++++++

Port: 8080

<Folder>

LocalPath = c:files

WebPath files

Writable yes

Allow from 192.168.1.0/24

User user1 user2 user3

</Folder>

<Folder>

LocalPath = u:public

WebPath public

Writable no

</Folder>

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

4. Edit c:[url removed, login to view] as following:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

user1:password1

user2:password2

user3:password3

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

5. Start the server: c:[url removed, login to view]

6. Test the WebDAV client integrated in WinXP:

(let's suppose that the WebDAV server is running on the computer 192.168.1.2)

Explorer -> Tools -> Map Network Drive

Folder: http://192.168.1.2/files

Connect using different username:

Username: user1

Password: password1

Ok, Finish

Now, I should be able to put/modify, get, delete and rename files using Explorer.

7. Test the WebDAV client integrated in MacOSX:

Finder -> Go -> Connect to server

Server address: http://192.168.1.2/files

Connect

Username: user1

Password: password1

Ok

Now, I should be able to put/modify, get, delete and rename files using Finder.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Info:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Here there is a list of possible WebDAV servers:

- Tomcat

(Tomcat 5.5 has a prebuilt example. Try: http://localhost:8080/webdav)

- [url removed, login to view]

It has a webdav module.

-[url removed, login to view]

However I did not succeed in making it work. Once I go to http://localhost:8080/slide I cannot authenticate.

-apache & mod_dav module

Here there is a list of WebDAV server that do not fulfill my given requirements:

-[url removed, login to view]

It is commercial

-PyWebDAV-0.6 (or [url removed, login to view])

It does not work for MsWindows.

-[url removed, login to view]

I think it requires MS SQL Server 2000

Please, when bidding, send me a message indicating the time need for the project.

Thanks,

David
