Subject [users@httpd] infinite subdirectories with webdav and windows
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2006 10:14:56 GMT

  i configured a vhost to allow webdav to authenticated users, now when
  people connect using either winxp or win2k they get a folder structure


  that wouldn't be that much of a problem if it would only display like
  that but i had reports that when people copy the top level folder
  windows also copies all subdirectories (including contents) resulting
  in ... minor troubles.

  the logs show nothing special when creating the folder from a client
  or when retrieving (not even the repeated retrieving of the
  "subdirectory". There are only valid requests that

  * create a single directory
  * get a directory and it's contents, but not the recursive gets for
    the folder

  any advice on how to solve this?

  here's the vhost config:

<VirtualHost *>
  ServerAdmin <scrambled>
  ServerName <scrambled>
  ServerAlias *.<scrambled>

  DocumentRoot /srv/<scrambled>/www

  # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
  # alert, emerg.
  LogLevel info

  ErrorLog /srv/<scrambled>/log/error.log
  CustomLog /srv/<scrambled>/log/access.log combined

  DavLockDB /srv/<scrambled>/DavLock

  <Directory /srv/<scrambled>/www>
    Options Indexes -MultiViews

    AllowOverride None

    Dav On
    AuthName "<scrambled>"
    AuthType Basic
    Require group <scrambled>
    AuthMySQL_User <scrambled>
    AuthMySQL_Password <scrambled>
    AuthMySQL_DB <scrambled>
    AuthMySQL_Password_Table <scrambled>
    AuthMySQL_Group_Table <scrambled>
    AuthMySQL_Username_Field username
    AuthMySQL_Password_Field password
    AuthMySQL_Group_Field groupname
    AuthMySQL_Empty_Passwords Off
    AuthMySQL_Encryption_Types Plaintext
    AuthMySQL_Authoritative On
    Order allow,deny
    allow from all
