WebDAV share with Lighttpd

As an alternative to Samba or NextCloud you may try to use WebDav. You’ll just need to install less than 1mb of dependencies and it will work much faster than PHP based NextCloud. You can mount the WebDav share as a network disk in Windows or use with KODI.
I created an instruction WebDAV with Lighttpd on Turris Omnia (TurrisOS/OpenWRT).
Please test it because there is a lot of hidden pitfalls.
I tried to not modify any file from packages to avoid loosing configs after update. That’s why they may look confusing.

Dear Turris Team, could you add the WebDav sharing option into reForris as you did for Samba, DLNA and other features?
That would be really great especially that it’s really not possible to configure without SSH command line.

Nice, thank you. Actually Nextcloud also uses WebDav, so a “normal” webdav client would not see the difference between your approach and Nextcloud… just obviously the admin side of things is quite different…
