    Hi, I am new to linux so maybe I am missing something. When I try to mount I get this error message:

    root@whitetiger:/home/rush# mount.davfs http://www.rushonerok.com /mnt/rushonerok_com

      Does mount point "/mnt/rushonerok_com" exist? Mount point may be any directory. But this directory must already exist. After mounting it will contain the mounted file system.

      Yes it exists. I also changed the permissions to on that directory to 777.

      Okay I am able to mount it now (kinda). The problem I had before was because of something on my web server. The problem I am having now is that I can't see any directories or files...

      root@whitetiger:/home/rush# mount.davfs http://www.rushonerok.com /mnt/rushonerok_com/

      root@whitetiger:/home/rush# cd /mnt/rushonerok_com/
      root@whitetiger:/mnt/rushonerok_com# ls
      root@whitetiger:/mnt/rushonerok_com# cd /mnt
      root@whitetiger:/mnt# ls
      rushonerok_com

      There is about 100 files on my web server so something isn't right.

      You may have a look at the log files of your web server (are there any requests?) as well as the log files on your local system (syslog, messages, daemon, kernel). Look for messages from coda and mount.davfs.

      You might also use ethereal or tcpdump to see if there is any traffic starting from your client. The content of this traffic may contain a hint what's going wrong.
