Default Webdav partition

Hello all!

So I have a question regarding filesystem type. I'm trying to setup a file server for an internal and external file server. It is my intention to make the files from this server available through webdav. In setting up apache I think I'm running into a problem. my /(filefolder) is a mount of an NTFS partition but with that I can't change permissions, so is there a filesystem I could use for this purpose which can be accessed by linux and windows?

Thanks!

Why don't you use ext3/ext4? You can upload/download files from Windows via WebDAV, and on Linux you can change permissions.

I didn't know that windows could read off an ext3/ext4 filesystem. I'll give it a try and keep you posted.

Thanks

It can't, but the share is exposed to Windows via WebDAV (so that windows can read/write from/to that share).
