+HOW TO CONNECT WITH A WEBDAV SERVER
+on SLACKWARE LINUX 13.0
+
+In this HOWTO, the user is named "user"
+Amend as required for your choice of username.
+
+1. Login as root
+
+2. Define a davfs2 group and user:
+
+ # groupadd -g 230 davfs2
+ # useradd -u 230 -d /var/cache/davfs2 -g davfs2 davfs2
+
+3. If (and only if) you have a Slack64 install;
+ # export ARCH=x86_64
+
+4. You may want to set the Package type that you will build:
+ # export PKGTYPE=txz
+
+5. Build and install your package:
+ # tar xvf davfs2.tar.gz
+ # cd davfs2
+ # wget http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/nongnu.org/davfs2/davfs2-1.4.5.tar.gz
+ # ./davfs.SlackBuild
+ # installpkg /tmp/davfs2-1.4.5-x86_64-1_SBo.txz
+
+6. Add the user if not already defined. My user shall be called user, so:
+
+ # adduser user
+
+ Read the Slackbook for more details on adduser, choose default settings BUT:
+ with the default group list add also davfs2:
+
+ Press ENTER to continue without adding any additional groups
+ Or press the UP arrow to add/select/edit additional groups
+ : audio cdrom floppy plugdev video power netdev davfs2
+
+7. Edit /etc/fstab with the following line:
+ WEBDAV_SERVER_URL mount_point davfs noauto,user 0 0
+
+ For example:
+ https://example.org/user /home/user/mnt/dav davfs noauto,user 0 0
+
+8. logout
+
+9. Login again as your davfs user ("user" in my case).
+
+10. $ mkdir -p $HOME/.davfs2/certs/private/ $HOME/mnt/dav
+
+11. Move the certificate to $HOME/davfs2/certs/private and restrict the permission to rw-------:
+ For example:
+
+ $ mv CERTIFICATE.pfx $HOME/.davfs2/certs/private/
+ $ chmod 600 $HOME/.davfs2/certs/private/CERIFICATE.pfx
+
+12. Optionally: Switch user to root and copy the system configuration file.
+ Then change ownership to the davfs user and exit back to the davfs user. There
+ are a lot of interesting comments in these files that might be helpful.
+
+ $ su -
+ # cp /etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf ~user/.davfs2/
+ # cp /etc/davfs2/secrets ~user/.davfs2/
+ # chown -R user:users ~user/.davfs2/
+ # exit
+
+13. Edit $HOME/.davfs2/davfs2.conf with the following line:
+
+ clientcert ~/.davfs2/certs/private/CERTIFICATE.pfx
+
+ Read:
+
+ $ man davfs2.conf
+
+ for all the details and options. Tests have shown that you do not need more
+ than the line above, but you may want to set many other interesting
+ parameters.
+
+14. Edit $HOME/.davfs2/secrets with the following 2 lines:
+
+ https://example.org/user username password
+ CERTIFICATE.pfx passphrase
+
+ passphrase is the password for the PFX certificate
+
+15. Restrict permssion for $HOME/.davfs2/secrets to rw-------:
+
+ $ chmod 600 $HOME/.davfs2/secrets
+
+16. Mount the davfs service on $HOME/mnt/dav
+
+ $ mount https://example.org/user
+
+ You should be able to see your WEBDAV server on $HOME/mnt/user
+
+17. When you would like to disconnect:
+
+ $ umount $HOME/mnt/dav
+
+ You should get a similar response (the pid number is random):
+
+ /sbin/umount.davfs: waiting while mount.davfs (pid 5700) synchronizes the cache .. OK
