To have a mapped drive which a user can drop a folder full of photos onto. In the WebDAV folder is a php photogallery app ( http://editkid.com/EUWDPCpix/ ) which automatically creates galleries out of folders full of photos. The setup should emulate the system that apple offers with it's iDisk system (which is essentially WebDAV anyway) whereby the iDisk has a 'pictures' subfolder, and anything dropped in there gets added into the gallery.
Anything created over WebDAV has crazy permissions and isn't accessible by the php. If the php is placed there over WebDAV it doesn't even run. I can't set the permissions over ssh or ftp, I can't edit the .htaccess files in the DAV folder and I can't sudo over ssh. This system could be an absolutely idiot-proof web photo gallery system if I can get it to work, so any help would be much appreciated.
