DAV (Distributed Authoring and Versioning)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
The Web was originally designed as a read-only medium in which browsers are used to display prepublished content at Web sites. But from the beginning, many people saw a need for authors to be able to edit Web content from remote sites. For example, if you have an ISP host your Web site, you may need to edit Web pages on your own computer, and then copy the updated files to the ISP's host server using FTP. WebDAV is a set of extensions that defines how to perform distributed authoring and versioning directly on Web pages.
See WebDAV for more information.
