Subject [users@httpd] Query on Apache Http Server for WebDAV
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2014 09:34:46 GMT

I am attempting to use WebDAV ('Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning') functionality
for Apache Http.
I have installed Http server. The httpd.conf has been modified as
DavLockDB /usr/local/apache2/var/DavLock
<Directory /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/CREF>
Require all granted
Dav On

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Files"
AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords
AuthGroupFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/groups
Require group GroupName
User/Passwords are stored in passwords file, multiple users are added under groups.
After starting the Http server, I can see the designated folder
However when I access the above link in browser - I can see that I am able to access the directory
I am also able to map this to a network drive in my Windows machine.
However I see the following issues
1.     I am not asked to authenticate - i.e. I am not asked to enter username/password
2.     I can get files out of the folder /CREF but not able to copy into the folder /CREF
Can someone review the httpd.conf changes I had mentioned above?
