Subject: [users@httpd] Problems with "publishing" PUT


> Problems implementing "publishing" PUT on Apache:
>
>
> I have been working to enable the "publishing" PUT method on
> my Apache server.
>
> I originally attempted to solve the problem with PHP, which supposedly
> supports PUTs for publishing, but existing doc (available on the web)
> is sparse and sometimes inaccurate.  So, I went to trusty CGI.
>
> My need is to enable "publishing," as from Netscape Composer.
> This, via http, not ftp. The browsers do their upload using a PUT,
> but Apache does not have the complete mechanism natively to handle
> the publishing PUT.  This is done by setting up in the httpd.conf
> file:
>
>      ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/usr/local/httpd/cgi-bin/"
>      Script PUT /cgi-bin/put.cgi
>
> This mechanism supposedly vectors any server request containing a PUT
> to the script put.cgi, which is a perl script that handles the file
> after upload.
>
> I have experimented and searched the web for documentation,
> but have not been able to get the publishing PUT to work.

> THE SYMPTOMS:
>
> If I attempt to publish from Netscape to the server root htdocs
> directory, the returned error message is:
>
>      Error uploading files.  The server responded: METHOD NOT ALLOWED.
>      The requested method PUT is not allowed for /test/test.htm on
>      this server.  Apache/1.3.20 Server at alta1.local Port 80.

> CONFIGURATION DETAILS AND TEST RESULTS:
>
> - Apache 1.3.20 with mod_actions on SuSE 7.3 (no mod_perl).
>
> - The server works fine for normal operations like html, cgi, and php.
>
> - For testing the PUT mode, web directories have permissions 777.
>
> - No .htaccess or other auth files or mechanisms.
>
> - The Alias properly works to cgi-bin and bin.cgi,
>   in other words, bin.cgi can be directly run from a browser.
>
> - A telnet, hand-typed PUT to port 80 produces the same results.
>
> - The rcapache.log says:  Syntax OK

> - The access_log shows like:
