Problem with webdav

Postby passmeister » 22. February 2013 23:42

Hello guys,

I have a problem with webdav not getting to function.
I wanted to set this up so that i could configure files from a remote station for example my ipad.

But the problem is, i have Xammp running with Apache and MySQL.
And as far as i found webdav should be on by default but when I enter: http://localhost/webdav/ on my windows 7 I get an error with Object not found.

Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong. I am pretty new at this so bare with me. Hope you guys can help.

Cheers

No, is not. It has been on in earlier releases. Simply look into httpd.conf and search for "webdav".

Hello,

I think I understand what you mean. but shouldn't it be on with:

<Directory "C:/xampp/webdav">
Dav On

Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

And still when i hit the url in my browser with xammp, apache and MySQL on it still gives the error with :" Object not found ".
Any other way of helpin out somebody?
Still thanks for the advice though!

Cheers

A. What is the exact URL you are using to 'access webdav'

B. From where and on what machine are you trying to access webdav?

No, still not. Apache needs the module dav, which is not included per default:

# Distributed authoring and versioning (WebDAV)
# Attention! WEB_DAV is a security risk without a new userspecific configuration for a secure authentifcation
# Include "conf/extra/httpd-dav.conf"


This is MY httpd.conf (and i did not change anything) and as you can see, the dav module is commented out.
