If you have been syncing Notebooks to your own WebDAV server on a Mac running Mac OS 10.7, you probably notice that this WebDAV setup no longer works on Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Here are two hints.

Mac OS X Server

In MacOS 10.7 OSX Server (Lion), the WebDAV service published user sharepoints in the form

https://www.example.com/webdav/user  

 
With Mac OSX Server 10.8, that sharepoint path is still accessible but does not work properly with respect to a number of WebDAV HTTP actions. However, the users’ WebDAV sharepoints can be accessed as

https://www.example.com/user

 
(i.e., omitting the “/webdav” portion of the path). This works properly with Notebooks, the Finder, and other WebDAV clients.

(Thanks to Brian Adamson for these details.)


Mac OS X (non server)

Setting up a WebDAV server on Mac OS X is a little more complex, but not really complicated either. Here are a few resources
