Subject says it all. I have a directory that is read-write (as set in but sharing it via WebDAV fails (e.g. MOVE does not work). As far as I have been able to find out, I need 'Full Control' set on the directory. The problem is, in there is no 'Full Control' (as there was in Server Admin on 10.6.8).

    The web server (_www) would need to have write access.

    This is probably not a usefull answer because of I don't admin a webdav server, so it's just general things.


    You don't show what is the result of your 2 modif, so I guess something like :


    ls -ale OmniFocus

    drwxr-x---+ 5  _www   _www   170 Apr 22 21:46 .


    How is the webdav authentication method ?

    Once the user is authenticated, which rights he will have ?

    Is the access mapped with apache rights ? (which mean all webdav users have same rights regarding to the file system, something like _www:_www)

    Or is there a "true" authentication and the user access folders with it's own rights ?


    Your post, with all theses "1: user:XXX inherited allow" lines let me think it's the second option.

    So _www have to be able to access, but webdav users too. You should try to set a

    group:_www allow ....

    With the "inherit"option  for the enclosed data.

    Check who is member of _www and try to add webdav users in this group


    With just posix permissions you'll have a 022 uname which don't give write access to the group.


    For the rest you can read the  ACL options by typing "man chmod", at "ACL MANIPULATION OPTIONS" chapiter.


    Hope it help...
