Finally, a webdav HOWTO that makes sense and actually works after following the instructions.

 I've been looking to enable wedav access to the main/default apache folder(/var/www) for a while.  But everyone goes into creating some other folder to enable webdav access on.  Thanks to your tutorial, I was able to add the webdav section where it's needed for /var/www and voila!  It works!

 Thank you.
