I am setting up Lion server so users on an Active Directory network can access webdav folders from iPads.

I have got this working fine when accessing a shared multi user folder.

I want users to also be able to access their own personal folders, with no one else being able to access the folder.

I can share the Users folder out to Active Directory groups but this will give each user access to other users folders how can I fix this without manually creating each folder and sharing it to each user?

It is probably obvious to other OSX users, but what daemon is OSX using? Apache, or something else? – Zoredache Sep 7 '12 at 0:52
Not actually an OSX user :) I am pretty sure its based on Apache though – user964406 Sep 7 '12 at 1:52
