A filesystem driver for WebDAV
davfs2 is a FUSE file system driver that allows you to mount a WebDAV server as a local file system, like a disk drive. This way applications can access resources on a Web server without knowing anything about HTTP or WebDAV.
davfs2 runs as a daemon in userspace. It uses the kernel file system coda or fuse. Most probably your Linux kernel includes at least one of these file systems.
