Davfs2 is a Linux file system driver that allows you to mount a WebDAV server as a local disk drive. Davfs2 uses Coda for kernel driver and neon for WebDAV interface. To get informaton about Davfs1, visit this page.
Davfs allows a remote Web server to be edited using standard applications that interact with the file system. For example, a remote Web site could be updated in-place using the same development tools that initially created the site.
UPDATE 2018/5/7Some outdated information in this post, please take a look on this webdav guide, it seems much better than my old post.
