To set up WebDAV access to Subversion repositories, see the auto-
versioning section of the book:


If you're talking about setting up WebDAV access to folders on your
server that are NOT version controlled (not served by Subversion),
then your question is off-topic for the Subversion lists, and you
should maybe ask on an Apache list instead.

If you're looking for other kinds of non-versioned file sharing
options (NFS, SMB, AFP, etc.) then you should also ask those
questions elsewhere.
