Using a local webdav-server to sync
Hi everyone,

I just figured out how to set up my very own webdav-server for syncing OF on my iMac and the iPhone using an somewhat older iBook G3 which I use as a fax server.

The steps are pretty much outlined here:


for setting up the apache-server which is part of OS X and enable SSL, since, as I read here in the forums, OF-syncing pretty much relies on using SSL. The one thing you need in addition to what's already included in OS X is here:


which includes the script.

After having done that, set up the webdav-part using this step-by-step guide:


Thats it, more or less. It's not point-and-click, however, being familiar with terminal is certainly necessary.

If my schedule permits, I will create a more straightforward guide for setting up a local webdav-server, including ssl and so on.

Why I did it this way? Well, because I wanted to know how to do it, of course.

Happy syncing

I'm close to deploying Snow Leopard Server. Okay. I'm paying for it and someone else is doing it. Does this mean I can use Snow Leopard Server as a local webdav server?

Looks like it from reading the spec sheet...but I have no personal experience doing so.
