WebDAV access allows users which can edit course files to do so from a convenient WebDAV "Web Folder"/Mountpoint which acts like a local drive.
#redirect [[WebDAV_repository]]
To set up WebDAV access in your Moodle installation:
* In Admin->Server->WebDAV Set webdavenable to Yes.
* The 'moodle/site:webdav' capability controls who can connect - by default the "Course Creator" role has it. Assign the role at the system level for users to be able to connect.
* If you want to restrict WebDAVaccess so it is only accessible from the local LAN, use the webdavsubnet setting.
(This feature will be available after v1.9)
Note: For the WebDAV feature to work, the PHP setting magic_quotes_gpc '''must''' be ''off''.
