I just recently watched the tutorial for Mobile Me iDisk at For a long time I've had my own "pseudo-iDisk" (AFP and Samba shares off of an iMac I use as a full time server). I love apple's new "Browse, upload to, and download to" web interface for the iDisk (anyone know what that system is actually called?)

Is there any way I can recreate this feature on my own website? The script itself would be on a real hosed website with the user log in area, but it would browse the afp/samba share hosed of the imac.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look into WebDAV. WebDAV can be accessed similar to iDisk off any Apache web server that supports it (look for mod_dav). We support an iDisk like system called WebDisk that's easily configurable through our control panel. Many web hosts also support this system. It may already be available to you.

Hi MacHighway,

Thanks for the reply. Sadly, my hosting provider doesn't support webdav and I tried setting it up on my at home panther imac server and couldn't get it to work.

Do you know of a way to enable webdav in OSX 10.3? And when I do that, what can I use to do the online "file browsing"?

QUOTE Thanks
