Getting Started

Thank you for selecting Goliath for managing your web content. Goliath is built to interoperate with a large number of different web servers. As long as the server is WebDAV compliant, Goliath should be able to fully manage the content hosted on that web server. There currently are quite a few different Web Servers running on a number of different platforms that support WebDAV; for more information on either WebDAV in general or on finding other WebDAV enabled products, please consult the web site
