Default WebDav Error 500

When browsing to mydomain.com/test which is created by ispconfig 3.0.3 beta i get an internal server error. I have checked the domain's vhost file and everything seems to be ok. I have also tried it on other domains on my server producing the same result.

In my apache log I get the error:

[crit] [client 192.168.1.1] configuration error: couldn't check user. No user file?: /test

mod_dav+ dav_fs are enabled for apache to use.

Im thinking this could be a user pemission problem, I have not changed them:

/test directory is owned by correct web user and correct client
there was a /files directory auto created, not sure it's purpose with user www-data + group.

Ruby is installed.

Please could anyone help?

How did you access the website? With a webbrowser or a webdav client? The website directory can not be accessed with a webdav client. For webdav users there are separate directories which are not inside the web directory.

webdav directories can only accessed with a webdav client. The web directory of a website can only be accessed with a webbrowser.

Im using bitkinex as a wevdav client now, I have entered the server address as mydomain.com. authorisation is the username and password of webdav user and the path /test is added to the sitemap. Cant seem to connect, im inexperienced in webdav and cant seem to figure out how it works with ispconfig.

hi, i got exactly the same problem.
was using webdav bevore upgrading ISPConfig to 3.0.3 and it worked fine.

my old one broke (had modified the site file myself) so i tried setting up with ISPConfig now.

configuration error: couldn't check user. No user file?: /[user]

am using lightning as client and tried with webdrive just to be sure.

Most likely the website config did not include the webdav placeholders yet. Edit a value in the website settings e.g. quota and click on save. If this does not solve the problem, post the exact error message from the error.log of the website.

updating the site did not change anything.
client reports a 500 error ...

log shows only this:

[Wed Oct 27 12:42:16 2010] [crit] [client 145.253.117.242] configuration error: couldn't check user. No user file?: /fireba11
