The org mode part just needs to have a directory it can put files into so that the client can access them. Then the mobileorg client has to get at them. So you have to have someplace where you can make both work. I think the options are * dropbox Use a dropbox client locally, to make dropbox space appear to be part of local filesystem, and just set org-mobile-directory to be in there. MobileOrg (iphone) has support for that; not sure about android versoin. I think it's ridiculous to use a 3rd party server without encrypting your org files, but of course your privacy views may be different. * local apache I have an org setup where I have org-mobile-directory set to ~/ORG-dav, which is just a directory on my disk (NetBSD, UFS2, nothing fancy). I have apache configured to put that directory into the webspace, and configure MobileOrg to do webdav there, and set up .htaccess. I have to be careful to set up permissions so apache as www/www can access the files - it's a bit hairy. * remote apache with ssh I have another org setup where I have org-mobile-directory set: (setq org-mobile-directory "/ssh:foo.example.com:/usr/home/gdt/ORG") which causes org-mobile to use tramp to place/fetch the files. I then have the same apache setup. * remote apache with a dav fs I haven't set this up, but it should be possible to use a webdav fs (fuse, etc.) on the computer with the org files to be the staging area, so that emacs will write over dav. This is pleasing from a permission point of view, because then the files that apache deals with are accessed by two webdav clients with the same credentials, and the apache permission scheme and the unix permission scheme don't have to be deconflicted. My apache setup is striaght by the book, with htdigest.
