This article is mainly about how to enable WebDav service on Synology NAS. In this article, you will learn the introduction to WebDav and the efficient way to enable WebDav on Synology NAS.

Introduction to WebDav

Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) is an extension of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol(HTTP) that allows clients to perform remote Web content authoring operations.

Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Win7 and IE, Office and Adobe/MacroMedia's DW all support WebDav, which greatly enhances the value and performance of web applications. For users who need to publish a lot of content, WebDav reduces the dependency on CMS systems and allows more freedom of creation. With WebDav, uploading and downloading can become a breeze.
