    Hi,

    I was wondering if WebDAV will be available on WH3.0?

    I would like to host my iCal calendar on my WestHost VPS.

    Thanks,

    -Ed

    WebDAV worked fine for me when I beta tested a WH3 account. It does require you to configure stuff via httpd.conf, but the modules are precompiled and everything should be relatively easy to setup as long as WH does not remove dav from their configure options.

    Is there any new info about Westhost providing WebDAV. I would like to have it installed on my server.

    Default Another vote

    Another vote for shared ical support.

    I've tried Thyme (with Joomla) and the subscription synchronizes downstream but not upstream for me.

    I'm still on manager 2.0. waiting, waiting, waiting for 3.0.
    I don't mind a bumpy transition if that speeds things up.

    Default DAV Instructions for WestHost 3.0

    Hi there everybody,

    After reading the comments in this posting, I've put together some short instructions on how to use WebDAV with a WestHost 3.0 account. Please note that these instructions will require that you edit configuration files directly on your account, so please proceed only if you're comfortable with that. I tested this on my own account and it worked smoothly for my basic needs.

    1) Create a directory that you'll use for your DAV area, e.g.
    "/var/www/html/davstuff"
    2) Edit the file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    3) Add a section like this, at the end of the file:
    <Directory /var/www/html/davstuff >
    Options +Indexes # If you want -- this makes it list the files when visited in a
    web browser
    DAV On
    # If you want it password protected, include these lines:
    AuthType basic
    AuthName "DAV Secure Access"
    AuthUserFile /etc/dav_passwords
    require valid-user
    </Directory>
    4) If you did want it password protected, also run this command for the first user:
    htpasswd -c -b /etc/dav_passwords user1 pass1
    5) For additional users or passwords:
    htpasswd -b /etc/dav_passwords user2 pass2
    htpasswd -b /etc/dav_passwords user3 pass3
    ..etc..
    6) Make your changes active with this command:
    apachectl restart

    Notes:
    1) If you don't get the lines in httpd.conf right, your web site won't come back up when you do the "apachectl restart" command. It will probably give you an error message about line XX - just go correct the problem and it will come back. Worst case, just remove what you added entirely.
    2) I would highly recommend password protecting your DAV directory, since it's easy for people (unknown third parties) to use your account to store their own files (legal or otherwise) if it's not protected. However, this will keep Windows XP from mounting it as a network drive. If you know a way around Windows' inability to mount a password-protected DAV share, I'd be interested to hear it!

    Hi All,

    first, thanks to Christopher for sharing the info about WebDAV. May I suggest a page containing directions to solve the Windows XP authentication issue?

    http://www.hss.caltech.edu/help/unix...ache-webdav-xp

    Also, does anyone know if the "Webpasswords 1.5" ValueApp can be used to create / manage WebDAV users?

    Thanks, best regards,
    Corrado

    Hi Corrado,

    The 'WebPassword 1.5' application could be used to manage WebDAV users, yes. The application creates an .htaccess file in the location specified, so you could just provide the path to your WebDAV location when it asks for an URL. I don't think WebDAV would be confused by the .htaccess file -- a quick test seems to confirm so -- but it's probably wise to refer to the same AuthUserFile in both your httpd.conf and in the .htaccess file.

    Also, thanks for that link - very interesting!

    I've tried this, but I still keep getting an:

    "HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error"

    The only difference I have from the above code is
    AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/.htpasswd

    as I'm using the password manager to manage passwords. The authentication seems to work (when I put in bogus values it gives an authentication error) but iCal won't publish. I tried support but it's out of their scope. The guy was helpful but couldn't fix it.

    Is there anything else I could try?
