Subject RE: [users@httpd] A question about webdav
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2009 03:55:25 GMT
Thanks for your help.
Actually, I found the answer after I mailing this question.

The point is "/i-data/md0" is a softlink and point to "/i-data/aed390a8". But I set AliasMatch
"^(?i)/music(.*)" "/i-data/ aed390a8/music$1" in my httpd.conf.

In addition, I only set <Directory "/i-data/md0/*">, not set <Directory "/i-data/
aed390a8/*">. So apache can't find any setting about the path /i-data/ aed390a8/music.

But why apache will ask me input username and password under this condition? I still can't
realize it now. But this problem was solved, Thanks for your help.

Hi.

One does not really know where to start.. ;-)

Maybe you should provide some basic details about the Operating System 
under which you are trying this, the version of Apache you are using, 
and what "http://ip/" really means.  Is "ip" the IP address of your host ?

Some notes :
1) I do not believe that <Directory "/i-data/md0/*"> is correct.  It 
should probably just be <Directory "/i-data/md0">.
Or else something like <DirectoryMatch "/i-data/md0/.*">

2) the fact that the disk directory "/i-data/md0/music" has permissions 
0777 is not really relevant to the problem as you explain it.
It the disk directory to which Apache would try to write (later, when a 
file is being uploaded) or from which it would try to read, did not have 
the appropriate permissions, you would get an error message from Apache, 
but that would happen later than your current issue.

3) The reason why you get a login dialog has to do with some form of 
Apache authentication required for access to that directory.
That may be because another directory (or Location) higher-up in the 
hierarchy is requiring such an authentication, and it is "inherited" by 
this directory.
But, in the absence of more details about your case, it is difficult to 
tell.

4) What do you mean by "accessing this directory via WebDav" ? which 
"client" are you really using ?  Are you on a Windows workstation, 
trying to set up a "web folder" ? is the Apache server hosted on the 
same workstation or a separate server ?

5) do you know that enabling Dav on a web server, without really 
understanding what you are doing in terms of security and 
authentication, can allow someone to download (or overwrite) your whole 
filesystem ?
