Subject [users@httpd] webdav problem?
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2004 17:19:54 GMT
I am running apache 2.0.48 on a redhat 9 machine.  I have a bunch of
microsoft .DOC files in a directory that apache serves.  When i browse to
one, (ex: sometimes i get the
document and sometimes i get a 404 error.  Using a win2k machine with IE6 it
displays fine and i see this in the apache log: - - [11/Feb/2004:11:53:49 -0500] "GET
HTTP/1.1" 200 26624

But using a winxp machine with IE6 i get the 404 and i see this in the log: - - [11/Feb/2004:11:53:27 -0500] "GET
HTTP/1.1" 304 0 - - [11/Feb/2004:11:53:27 -0500] "GET /_vti_inf.html HTTP/1.1"
404 327 - - [11/Feb/2004:11:53:27 -0500] "POST
/_vti_bin/shtml.exe/_vti_rpc HTTP/1.1" 404 341 - - [11/Feb/2004:11:53:27 -0500] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 200 3633 - - [11/Feb/2004:11:53:27 -0500] "OPTIONS
HTTP/1.1" 200 0

I know this has something to do with dav and frontpage extensions? but i do
not wish to use either.  I just want to open the doc file for VIEWING ONLY.
I do not want to be able to edit the file on the server.  Is there any way
that i can tell apache to stop doing whatever it is doing with the XP
machine.  I want it to just display the doc file like any other file.
