Best if you upgrade to 6.0.32 / 7.0.11. There have been lots of fixes
since then.

You prevent creation of directories by securing the MKCOL http method.
You should review the http methods to see if you wish to limit any others.

The WebDAV servlet is designed to provide access to the entire context
at whatever path you map it to. For example, if you map it to
/webdavedit/* content you view via
http://host:port/contextpath/content.html is editable via

To get the behaviour you want, you should map the webdav servlet to /*
in a separate sub-context.
