For some reason, OmniFocus just isn't finishing its WebDAV syncs. I tried copying a disk-synced file to a WebDAV server, and the iPhone app sees the database, but no data shows up.
Yes, this is exactly what I'm seeing. I don't have any control over the WebDAV server, so I can't rule out it being a problem on that end; but since OF isn't giving any errors, I would guess the problem lies with OF.

That's pretty cool of you to offer direct support..... in recent developments.....

OMG VICTORY! I got my webDAV on my machine setup! Synced all items. I did have to restore my OF database on my mac from a backup before everything came together.

Thank god.

On the plus side, I can give myself credit for my weekly continuing education activity of "30 min tech reading" and "30 min working on tools"! Who knew! :]
 
...huh. Somehow my data just showed up on my iPhone. I'm not sure if MobileMe came up or what. If anyone here is just using WebDAV until MobileMe comes back, you might try iDisk syncing again.
 
These were the easiest instructions for me to follow http://www.timefold.com/osx/tips/webdavical.html

There was a syntax problem with the httpd.conf file. The Directory and LimitExcept tags need to be closed. So, it should be
# WebDAV folder
<Directory "/Library/WebServer/Documents/dav">
DAV On
AuthName 'WebDAV'
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
<LimitExcept GET HEAD OPTIONS>
require valid-user
</LimitExcept>
</Directory>

Hope this helps somebody.
 
:rolleyes:

$20 later, I'm scrambling all over the interwebs trying to get my OF database onto my iPhone with absolutely _no_ clue what is going on.

I understand...thank you for the information. It must be frustrating to be under Apple's thumb about this but (IMHO) if you want iOF to be as easy, reliable and rocking as your other apps are generally considered, some downloadable scripts, or even building web dav into OF or or or something is in order.

Many don't have the knowledge to enable webdav...many more (like me) don't really have the time (I'll probably break down and make some time but...) and many others (like me) don't want to a) pay for .me (or some equivalent) or b) be totally reliant on .me (or some equivalent).

Thank you for trying and good luck overcoming this usability conundrum!

I don't mean to keep whining about the same thing, but until I get web dav running >locally< on >my< box, I'm not going to be able to trust my system.

This fix is great...until Bingodisk.com goes down the day I need OF most...

I'm dreading figuring this out...how long did it take you to get web dav up? can you post new, clearer instructions please?

Thanks!

This breaks stuff horribly as the config files are a bit different and you can't simply copy your old one over to the new /etc/apache2/ directory. I used bbedit to diff the two files and merge some stuff, but was still unable to get aliases outside the document root working. Then I came across a hint that suggests a simple fix:
"You will find a Deny from all under <Directory /> (line 177 or alike). Change it to Allow from all."

This fixed the permission errors I was getting for stuff like phpMyAdmin and my iTunes folder which I can access remotely once again.
/cheer"


Now I'll just wait for the ipod touch software update, I can't wait to test this out!!:)

Agreed...OG are a great group.

Congratulations! Which instructions did you follow or did you have to contact (call or email?) the support ninjas?
 
Or by extension, until the day your locally hosted DAV store breaks due to some security update, a slip of the wrist or beer spilled into your machine. Offsite is just as, if not more, 'trustworthy' as on your local machine. And, hey, I got it up and running in 3 minutes!

But we all have our comfort zones. Good luck!
