WebDAV sites

Managed by | Updated .


Funnelback includes basic support for the crawling of WebDAV sites using the web crawler.


  • Crawling of WebDAV sites does not support DLS.


  1. Create a web collection for the WebDAV site index

    • Configure the start URL to be the WebDAV site's root page
    • Configure include/exclude patterns as for a standard web collection.
  2. Configure authentication

    Configure authentication in the same manner as for an authenticated web crawl.

  3. Configure filetypes and download sizes

    • The basic filetypes supported by web collections will be gathered. Additional filetypes can be added. See: Configure Funnelback to index additional file types
    • Set download and parser sizes using the crawler.max_download_size and crawler.max_parse_size settings.
  4. Crawl the site.
