WebDAV Access

WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a way to edit and manage files on remote web servers. WebDAV provides a way for University web developers to edit the files within their websites.

WebDAV address

To edit your site through Web authoring software, use this WebDAV address/URL:


where siteaddress is the address of your website (without the http:// prefix).

This WebDAV address is only valid for editing your website.

Example WebDAV addresses

The WebDAV address for editing an organizational website is as follows:


where sitename is the last part of the organization website address.

The WebDAV address for editing a course website is as follows:


where xxxxx is the first part of the instructor's BearPass Email (the portion before the @).

The WebDAV address for editing a personal website is as follows:


where xxxxx is the first part of your BearPass Email (the portion before the @).

Web Press sites

Authors and editors of Web Press sites do not use WebDAV for editing. Visit the Web Press homepage to log in and edit your website.
