HowTo WebDAV Windows XP bug Workaround
 
Hello HowtoForge Community,

I have been reading through endless documentations about WebDAV, and various tutorials, etc searching for a solution to the bug. Since I wanted to use the WebDAV function of ISPConfig badly. Yesterday I found the solution to make windows xp use the old version of the network devices manager. I had a lot of time today and made a quick how to:

First we create a WebDav user:
http://oi51.tinypic.com/24q6zxf.jpg

Now we can install our WebDAV drive in Windows XP. Go to My Network Places and click on "add a network place"

Click on "Next".
Click on "Choose another network location" and click "Next".
now comes the workaround,
usually at this point you type http://example.tld/webdav/
but to make windows use the old version of the network device manager simply type http://user: pass@example.tld/webdav/ without the space between : and pass
http://oi53.tinypic.com/2el9roy.jpg

Click "Next"
Type your desired WebFolder name in the input-field and click "Next"

Now make sure to put a check in the "Open this network place when I click Finish." and click Finish

Now type in your user and pass in the inputs again and if you want put a check to make windows remember this.

I hope this helps, have fun

webdav access problem
 
when I am trying to add network loaction in windows 7, I am getting the error the folder "folder you entered doesn't appears to be valid".

I have tried all options like I have created a doc folder in /webdav/doc in ISPCONFIG control panel

Now when I am trying to access the same by adding network location I have tried all possible combinations like
  1. http://user(actual user name):pass(actual password)@mydomain.tld/webdav/doc
  2. http://user(actual user name):pass(actual password)@mydomain.tld/doc
  3. http://mydomain.tld/doc

but none of the above work.
However one thing I have noticed which needs attention in particular that is "webdav folder is being created outsite the default /web folder. "Could this be the reason for the error?

Please help.

No, thats not related. The webdav folder is outside of the web folder in ispconfig, as webdav is a separate service e.g. for sharing calendars and not meant to update or upload any files into the web folder.

Which ispconfig version are you using?

I guess that the webdav modules are either not installed or not enabled in apache. Which Linux distribution do you use?
