Special web site forcusing on FreeBSD server, Linux desktop, and miscellaneous issue.
At last, server software installation starts. In this section, I made reference to “FreeBSD Expert 2005,” FreeBSD Expert editorial office (2005) Gijutsu hyoron sha (Japanese) and “Guide of Construct WebDAV system,” Kunio Miyamoto, Yasushi Yamada, and Tsuyoshi Watanabe (2003) Gijutsu hyoron sha (Japanese).
Autoconf is maybe already installed.
> cd /usr/ports/devel/autoconf259
> sudo make install clean
Though BerkeleyDB has many versions, you will be forced to install version 4.2. Thus,
> cd /usr/ports/databases/db42
> sudo make install clean
> cd /usr/ports/textproc/expat2
> sudo make install clean
This may leads following error message, and stop installation.
===> expat-2.0.0_1 is already installed
You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
If you really wish to overwrite the old port of textproc/expat2
without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/textproc/expat2.
Thus following instructions,
> sudo make deinstall
> sudo make reinstall
This makes expat2 to latest version installed.
I use Apache, latest version 2.2.
> cd /usr/ports/www/apache22
> sudo make WITH_BERKELEYDB=db42 -DWITH_LDAP install clean
My configuration of Apache 2.2 is listed below.

After installation, configure Apache by editing httpd.conf file by vi editor.
> sudo vi /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf
First, remove all comment out mark in the lines begining LoadModule. Imprement every module to Apache. Especially, the line including dav_module and dav_fs_module is essential to DAV function.
Subsequently, in this file, the part of
Remove comment out mark and input your machine's IP address or alter like
Finally, configuration of /etc/rc.conf. Open this file and add line below to end of file.
That is all. Basic configuration of Apache is terminated. Reboot your machine and access from other machine in your LAN by using browser (type http://(the machine's IP address)/). If a page saying “It Works” appears, all goes well though the page is rather brusque.
To append version control function to Apache, Subversion is needed. Install it as described below.
> cd /usr/ports/devel/subversion
> sudo make -DWITH_MOD_DAV_SVN install clean
Place dav.conf file at /usr/local/etc/apache22/Include directory. In this directory all *.conf files are treated as a part of httpd.conf file.
> sudo vi /usr/local/etc/apache22/Includes/dav.conf
The content of this file is described below.
Alias /dav /home/dav
Allow from All
Locate DAV directory indicated above and set directory owner appropriately.
> cd /home
> sudo mkdir dav
> sudo chown www:www dav
After these operations above, configurations Apache including DAV function and Subversion are completed. After rebooting your machine, access form another computer with URL of http://(your machine's address)/dav/.
Here again, in this site, it is assumed the FreeBSD machine is located inside firewall. If you place your machine configured like above outside firewall, direct to internet, or in DMZ, cope with security matter.
Incidentally, to access to your WebDAV server form Windows xp with basic authentication, remove check at “use unified windows authentication” off at “detail option” of IE (I am not sure this is correct translation. English version IE may show different representation.) and add “?” mark in the end of access URL.
