The url resolver only uses HTTP PUT requests. Maybe you could try to use the vfs-resolver and
use the webdav:// protocol?

Subject: ivy:install fails when directories does not exists (WebDAV)


I am using Apache Ivy 2.1.0

When installing an artifact using ivy:install from public repo to a shared local repository
(stored on an Apache webserver -server using WebDAV), I get the following error from Apache

"impossible to install log4j#log4j;1.2.15: Access to URL
was refused by the server:

The error.log in Apache displays the following
... Unable to PUT new contents for /ivyrepo/log4j/log4j/sources/log4j-1.2.15-sources.jar.
 [403, #0]
... An error occurred while opening a resource.  [500, #0]

The access.log displays the following
"PUT /ivyrepo/log4j/log4j/sources/log4j-1.2.15-sources.jar HTTP/1.1" 403 254

The problem is (my guess) is that the Apache Ivy -client is not creating the directory structure
(using MKCOL) needed before PUT:ing the file? I don't see any MKCOL -requests in the access
log and not any PROPFIND or OPTIONS either?

If I create the directory structure (/ivyrepo/log4j/log4j/sources/) manually on the webserver
and then try ivy:install again, it works fine!?

A strange thing is that this worked fine just a couple of weeks ago?
