Default Use WebDav to administer website?

ISPConfig Version:
Underlying OS: CentOS 6, recently yum update'ed
Webserver: Apache/2.2.15 (Unix)

Greetings ISPConfig'ers....

I wanted to provide my users a way to administer their websites via WebDAV. It appears however, that ISPConfig creates and uses a new path called "webdav" from the client root rather than the traditional directory called "web".

I thought of sym-linking 'webdav' to 'web' but there may be security or other unintended consequences so I thought I might ask the experts.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Kind Regards,
Larry Wimble

P.S. I haven't had an opportunity to compliment you guys on ISPConfig3. You guys have done an awesome job!

You can not use webdav to administer your websute as webdav runs under a wrong user and apache does not support to switch the webdav user to the website user.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
