PDF Collaboration: WebDAV In Action - Installation and Setup of WebDAV

Bernd Zipper

In general, a WebDAV server has modest hardware requirements. A Pentium or PowerPC-based system with at least 128 MB RAM and 4GB disk space is sufficient for the Acrobat workflow we tested. WebDAV can be installed on most modern server operating systems, including Windows NT Server, Windows 2000 Professional, OS X and Linux. An optimum configuration was achieved, in our opinion, was achieved by using Red Hat Linux, Apache and the WebDAV Extension.
