    ***SOLVED***

      

      The fact is that mod_dav fails if the directory that you ask it to
      serve contains the file that is identified as DirectoryIndex.

      

      So in my original posting, DAV fails to serve the DocumentRoot
      (however I try to get at it) BECAUSE it contains the file
      'index.html'.

      

      I got here because I realised that there was something specific
      about the 'site' directory that caused mod_dav to choke, and I
      worked through the variables.

      

      My solution, which seems to work is:

      

      <VirtualHost *:80>

          ServerName www.my-exemple.co.uk

          ServerAdmin webmaster@ip.uk.com

          DocumentRoot /nfs4xp/www/www.my-exemple.co.uk/site

          ErrorLog 
      /nfs4xp/www/www.my-exemple.co.uk/WEB-INF/logs/httpd/error.log

          CustomLog
      /nfs4xp/www/www.my-exemple.co.uk/WEB-INF/logs/httpd/access.log
      combined

          DirectoryIndex index.html

      

          Alias /update /nfs4xp/www/www.my-exemple.co.uk/site

      

          <Directory /nfs4xp/www/www.my-exemple.co.uk/site>

              Options Indexes

              AllowOverride none

              Require all granted

          </Directory>

      

          <Location /update>

              Dav On

              AuthType Basic

              AuthName "Site Update"

              AuthUserFile
      /nfs4xp/www/www.my-exemple.co.uk/WEB-INF/dav/user.passwd

              AuthBasicProvider file

              DirectoryIndex neverused.neverused

      

              <LimitExcept GET POST HEAD OPTIONS>

                  require valid-user

              </LimitExcept>

      

          </Location>

      

      </VirtualHost>

      

      The only difference is that I change the DirectoryIndex to
      something that will never appear for the DAV enabled location.

      

      This has got to be a BUG. I'll look into reporting it. At least it
      seems easy enough to work around once you know.

      

      (I hope that I'm not celebrating prematurely).

      

      Regards,

      David

          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

              Please try to add the line following line before Alias
