WebDAV Browse mode enables you to map a network drive in your operating system that represents the content of your website. Files stored by the website can be found on the drive, letting you open, edit and save the files in a client application just as if they were stored on your local drive.
For to start using WebDAV Browse mode, you need to meet all requirements and performed the necessary configuration. After that, you only need to map the network drive in the operating system. The Mapping a WebDAV network drive topic explains two approaches how this can be achieved. When the network drive is mapped, you can start editing website files right away.
The network drive contains the following folders:
•attachments - contains document attachments and files stored in documents' file fields. They can be found in folders resembling the website's content tree structure.
•content - contains CMS.File documents stored in folders resembling the website's content tree structure.
•media - contains a folder for each media library on the website, while each folder contains the actual content of the respective library.
•groups - contains a folder for each group defined on the site, while each group folder contains the three folders mentioned above, containing only those attachments, content and media that belong to the particular group.
The media and groups folders may not be present, depending on if the Media libraries and Groups modules are installed.
