WebDAV: service vs console

Postby watzlaw » 02. April 2006 18:41


i've installed xampp 1.5.0. i've set up a webDAV directory and i am able to connect to it. i can view and download content. BUT i can not upload or modify anything if apache runs as a windows service. If i start apache using xampp_start.exe from the console all works fine.

I know that the webdav folder must be writable by apache. but i can't figure out how to change file permissons under windows.

Any ideas?

with kind regards,

if you run apache as service it is started by the user "system", if you start it manually it is started by the actual user, so check permissions for system-user
