The DAVMinTimeout directive is used to specify minimum timeouts after which locks will expire. This is useful if the client specifies a timeout that is too low, or if your clients access the server via modem and require additional time to reconnect if their connections fail.
Some of the advantages include
SSL for secure access
Authentication modules for access control
Filtering modules for processing content as it is retrieved or uploaded
High-performance HTTP server framework
