We operate a WebDav site, currently on 
Apache 2.0.42, but operating in the same 
manner since 2.0.16...
...Our users are able to create, move, 
copy, and delete files.

We have Apache running as user "nobody"
and group "nobody" (but started as root)...
...we are using the "worker" model.

The all of the DAV filesystem tree must be owned by 
user "nobody" and group "nobody".  The
same goes for the DavLockDB file and its directory.
