I did write small bash script to mount XE WebDAV folder to server file system. This is tested on Ubuntu 8.04 server and depend on package davfs2.
Download the script and place it to server folder /etc/init.d/
Give execute permission to file:
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/xewebdav
Create folder webdav to /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/webdav
sudo chown oracle:dba /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/webdav
Install davfs2 if not installed:
sudo apt-get install davfs2
Edit file /etc/davfs2/secrets
sudo nano /etc/davfs2/secrets
Add line to file (change your_system_password what is your system password):
http://localhost:8080 system your_system_password
Then you are ready to start using script:
sudo /etc/init.d/xewebdav start
