Full Description

Docker WebDAV image

A tiny image running gliderlabs/docker-alpine Linux and Lighttpd.


docker run --restart=always -d
    -p \
    --hostname=webdav \
    --name=webdav \
    -v /<host_directory_to_share>:/webdav \

By default the WebDAV server is password protected with user webdav and password vadbew which obviously isn't really secure.
This can easily be overwritten, by creating a config directory on the host with an htpasswd file and mounting this as a volume on /config.

-v /<host_config_directory>:/config

You could use an online htpasswd generator like to create the password hashes when you don't have a machine with the htpasswd package. (Hint: The package is apache2-utils)

You can also provide a list of IP's in the form of a regular expression which are then whitelisted. See below.

Optional environment variables

  • USER_UID User ID of the lighttpd daemon account (default: 2222).
  • USER_GID Group ID of the lighttpd daemon account (default: 2222).
  • WHITELIST Regexp for a list of IP's (default: none). Example: -e WHITELIST='192.168.1.*|'
  • READWRITE When this is set to true, the WebDAV share can be written to (default: False). Example: -e READWRITE=true

IMPORTANT: Should you use a persistent config volume, the WHITELIST and READWRITE variables will only have effect the first time. I.e., when you don't have a (custom) configuration yet.
