    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.
