Thank you for adding the information :)

Do you know Microsoft Sharepoint?
webDAV is something very basic like Sharepoint for HTTP protocol.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)

just in 2 words
Why in 2 words when you post a simple question always in more words than just 2? :D

Don't they have Google in the AE?

In short and to help others reading this topic:
webDAV is an acronym for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning, a sort of extension to http/1.1, which allows you to edit documents on a remote web server.

WebDAV supports the following features:-
Editing:
Create, update, and delete files.

Properties:
Store meta data such as titles, author names, and publication dates. You can set, delete, and retrieve these meta data.

Collections:
Group resources into collections that are organized like a file system, similar to a directory or desktop folder.

Locking:
Use locks to prevent others from editing the same content you're working on in WebDAV. The duration of the locks is independent of any individual network connection.
webdav.org wrote:What is WebDAV?
Briefly: WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning". It is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol which allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers.
