DAVfs is a Linux file system driver that allows you to mount a WebDAV server as a disk drive. WebDAV is an extension to HTTP/1.1 that allows remote collaborative authoring of Web resources, defined in RFC 4918.

Installing DAVfs

Install davfs2 from official repositories.

Mounting the partition

Examples:

# mount.davfs http://localhost:8080/ /mnt/dav
# mount -t davfs http://localhost:8080/ /mnt/dav

Mounting as regular user

Add yourself to network group:

# usermod -a -G network username

Add webdav entry to /etc/fstab:

https://webdav.example.com /home/username/webdav davfs user,noauto,uid=username,file_mode=600,dir_mode=700 0 1

Create secrets file in your home:

$ mkdir ~/.davfs2/
$ echo "https://webdav.example.com webdavuser webdavpassword" >> ~/.davfs2/secrets 
$ chmod 0600 ~/.davfs2/secrets

If you want to mount several disks from same server, you need specify mount points of this disks instead of server address in file ~/.davfs2/secrets

/home/username/disk1 webdavuser1 webdavpassword1
/home/username/disk2 webdavuser1 webdavpassword2
.........
/home/username/diskN webdavuserN webdavpasswordN 

Now you should be able to mount and unmount ~/webdav:

# mount ~/webdav
# fusermount -u ~/webdav
