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.
- -c, --config
- 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.
- -D, --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
- -H, --host
- Host where to listen on (default: localhost).
- -P, --port
- Port to bind server to (default: 8008).
- -u, --user
- Username for authentication.
- -p, --password
- Password for given user.
- -n, --noauth
- Pass parameter if server should not ask for authentication.
This means that every user has access.
- -m, --mysql
- Pass this parameter if you want MySQL based authentication.
If you want to use MySQL then the usage of a configuration file is
- -J, --lockemu
- Activate experimental LOCK and UNLOCK mode (WebDAV Version
2). Currently know to work but needs more tests. Default is ON.
- -M, --nomime
- 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.
- -i, --icounter
- 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.
- -v, --verbose
- Be verbose.
- -h, --help
- Show this screen.
