    i have a web called "" and a certificate for that domain.

    ispconfig uses

    i created a web "", it is availiable (over apache2).

    i want to use webdav for that domain (apache2). i tried to put the directives in the directives field but it will be commented out:

    # DavLockDB /var/log/DavLock/DavLockDB # NOT SUPPORTED!
    # <Location /var/www/> # NOT SUPPORTED!
    # Dav On # NOT SUPPORTED!
    # </Location> # NOT SUPPORTED!

    apache -t says "Invalid command 'DavLockDB'".

    what is the correct way to enable webdav?

    Web dav

    Got it to work in a non ispconfig with three basic steps
    One..a2enmod dav
    Two..Add line once to httpd.conf
    DAVLockDB /tmp/DAVLock
    Add directories
    Alias /ifnl /var/var/www/web10/ifnl_dav
    <Location /ifnaturallearning>
    DAV On
    But I get this error with ISPConfig
    Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/apache2/httpd.conf:
    Invalid command 'DAVLockDB', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
    Maybe I need to do it via the ISP Web interface?
    Oh well I will keep trying...
    Also litmus test gives a 450 error if I put the above in the ispconfig for that site and test?

    This means that mod_dav is not loaded. Plese install mod_dav from your linux distribution.

    a2enmod dav
    This module is already enabled! <--it put the explanation point not me.
    But am I doing this in the right place ie not via a place in ISPConfig but in Apache at the console level.
    Thanks for the reply though.
    PS if anyone has gotten it to work and then create per client settings maybe they could do a how to on this?

    If it is enabled already, there's no need to add it to /etc/apache2/httpd.conf.

    What's in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf now?

    Well here are some updates....

    Ubuntu having a how to in the forum led to
    httpd.conf was left alone ie it is default
    dav_fs conf looked like this
    [email protected]:/etc/apache2/mods-enabled# more dav_fs.conf
    #DAVLockDB /var/lock/apache2/DAVLock
    DAVLockDB /tmp/DAVLock
    #DAVMinTimeout 600
    #Alias /ifnl_dav /var/www/web11/web/aliasfolder/ifnl
    #<Location /ifnl_dav>
    # Dav On
    # AuthType Basic
    # AuthName *username*
    # AuthUserFile /var/www/web11/web/alisfolder/.DAVlogin
    # <LimitExcept PUT GET OPTIONS>
    # Require user *username*
    # </LimitExcept>
    -----end paste
    BUT even though this did not work I then went into ispconfig and used it's web interface to add this setting to the ONE client I want to have this access.
    Stilll no luck though here is a litmus error
    [email protected]:~$ litmus http://domainname/aliasfolder username password
    -> running `basic':
    0. init.................. pass
    1. begin................. FAIL (Could not create new collection `/ifnl/litmus/' for tests: 302 Found
    Server must allow `MKCOL /ifnl/litmus/' for tests to proceed)
    <- summary for `basic': of 2 tests run: 1 passed, 1 failed. 50.0%
    See debug.log for network/debug traces.
    Thanks in advance

    Well almost done...
    Seems if I just focused on the file...
    It worked
    For better or for worse I added to /etc/apache2/apache.conf
    BrowserMatch "^WebDAVFS/1.[012]" redirect-carefully
    BrowserMatch "^WebDAVFS/1.[012]" redirect-carefully
    BrowserMatch "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" redirect-carefully
    BrowserMatch "^WebDAVFS" redirect-carefully
    #Header add MS-Author-Via "DAV"
    Since sometimes I had trouble with ms clients
