Subject Re: [users] WebDAV for managing web site content HTTPD 2.4.x (9 actually)
Date Tue, 03 Jun 2014 20:38:41 GMT
Srinivasa,

I have tried what I think you are suggesting:

...
DirectoryIndex index.html

 Alias /update /www/www.my-example.co.uk/site/dav
 Alias /update /www/www.my-example.co.uk/site

 <Directory /www/www.my-example.co.uk/site>
...

Then I get the 405 error.

There is a subdirectory of my 'site' DocumentRoot called 'dave'.

If I have:

...
DirectoryIndex index.html

 Alias /update /www/www.my-example.co.uk/site/dave
 Alias /update /www/www.my-example.co.uk/site

 <Directory /www/www.my-example.co.uk/site>
...

Then the second 'Alias' line is ignored and DAV works, but serves up my
'dave' directory.

Regards,
David
