Webdav Support?

I am rather disturbed by the statement

 

Another possible denial-of-service attack involves a client simply filling up all available disk space with many large files. There is no direct way to prevent this in Apache, so you should avoid giving DAV access to untrusted users.

How do we know who is a trusted user?

 

An interesting idea, but not for shared hosting.

I have it working on my home Apache server, but I would like to be able to synchronize my sites.

Why don't you just set up a script that will at a given interval upload your site from your home machine to your tch account. Because you should schedule a cron job to make a tar file of your web directory at a given interval, and then upload it to your tch account. Then set up a cron job on the tch end to uncompress your tar file and replace all the contents on your tch account. I have something similiar to this except it goes the other way so that I keep a current backup of my tch site.

Wouldn't a tarball on a regular basis use up a lot more bandwidth than just the potentially few or no files that have actually been updated? It may be a show-stopper for someone with a really big site.

You can also set your tar ball creation to only include files that have changed in a given amount of time period like a month or a week.

 

But that would be one of the possiable solutions I can think of except you manually update the given files that change when you change them and are ready for them to be public. But I think that is what the user is trying to get away from.

Is there any change in thought on this idea?

 

I'm looking at the Mozilla calendar application (Sunbird) and would like to be able to publish my calendar so I can synchronize it with my husband's calendar.

 

Here's what Mozilla says it needs:

How can I serve my shared calendars?

 

    To share your calendars, you need access to a webDAV server. If you run your own web server, you can install mod_dav, a free Apache module that will turn your web server into a webDAV server. Instructions on how to set it up are on their website. Once you set up your webDAV server, you can publish your calendar to the site, then subscribe to it from any other Mozilla Calendar. Automatically updating the calendar will give you a poor man's calendar server.

 

This thread makes it sound like I'm stuffed and can't do this. But I thought I'd ask just in case things have changed. Thanks.

Nothing has changed on this at the present time.

 

I too am interested in WebDAV for Mozilla Calendar. I've noticed that some other providers are beginning to provide this functionality and seem to have been able to take steps to mitigate the problems you've described above.

 

Perhaps the technology has now matured to such a degree where it is worth considering it again?

I just wanted to add that I am also interested in using SunBird for calendar sharing for my company. We have an internal server that we can route through, but I'd prefer to make the calendar accessible at home or work.

 

icalx.com offers free webDAV hosting for iCal, Mozilla Calendar/Sunbird, etc, in either public or private directories. It also offers phpiCalendar previews of your calendars if you want to share it with others. I've been using their service with my iCal remote copies, and just upload them to my TCH account using the File Manager in cpanel.

 

:)
