How do I transfer files to Resources using WebDAV?

Users can transfer files to Resources using the WebDAV protocol. WebDAV allows users to upload multiple files and folders from their local computer to and from their site Resources.

WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning". It is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers.

Once users have set up WebDAV for a particular site Resources, their computer will treat the Resources like any other folder on their local system. Users are able to drag and drop files and folders from Resources just as they would in “My Computer” in Windows, or the “Finder” on a Mac.

Note: You may also upload multiple files using the drag and drop feature in Resources.

For Windows, users can download AnyClient for WebDAV connections, or set up a connection using the native Windows WebDAV support.  

Mac user should download and install Cyberduck for Mac (opens new window), then follow the instructions for connecting to your site.

Go to Resources.

Select the Resources tool from the Tool Menu of your site.
