    Question Zimbra WebDAV - IMPORTANT

    Researching the PHP modules for Apache on CentOS 5 for WebDAV and how it controls the communication, I did a search for all the HTTPD.CONF files that configure WebDAV.

    I found these results:
    WebDAV for Zimbra
    Code:
    /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    175 LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
    
    179 LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/mod_dav_fs.so
    
    
    549 # WebDAV module configuration section.
    550 #
    551 <IfModule mod_dav_fs.c>
    552     # Location of the WebDAV lock database.
    553     DAVLockDB /var/lib/dav/lockdb
    554 </IfModule>
    
    884 # The following directive disables redirects on non-GET requests for
    885 # a directory that does not include the trailing slash.  This fixes a
    886 # problem with Microsoft WebFolders which does not appropriately handle
    887 # redirects for folders with DAV methods.
    888 # Same deal with Apple's DAV filesystem and Gnome VFS support for DAV.
    889 #

    891 BrowserMatch "MS FrontPage" redirect-carefully
    892 BrowserMatch "^WebDrive" redirect-carefully
    893 BrowserMatch "^WebDAVFS/1.[0123]" redirect-carefully
    894 BrowserMatch "^gnome-vfs/1.0" redirect-carefully
    895 BrowserMatch "^XML Spy" redirect-carefully
    896 BrowserMatch "^Dreamweaver-WebDAV-SCM1" redirect-carefully
    
    
    /opt/zimbra/conf/httpd.conf
    959 # The following directive disables redirects on non-GET requests for

    /opt/zimbra/httpd-2.2.15/conf/httpd.conf 
    394 # Distributed authoring and versioning (WebDAV)
    395 #Include conf/extra/httpd-dav.conf
    
    
    /opt/zimbra/httpd-2.2.15/conf/original/httpd.conf 
    393 # Distributed authoring and versioning (WebDAV)
    394 #Include conf/extra/httpd-dav.conf
    Questions:
    1. There is no "DAVLockDB /var/lib/dav/lockdb" file being created. lockdb doesn't exist. Should it?
    2. Should "conf/extra/httpd-dav.conf" file be turned on for WebDAV to work? It's commented out.


    Please advise. Thanx in advance.

    IMHO the WebDAV protocol is handled by the Zimbra mailboxd service and not the Apache HTTPD. Therefore you can't configure WebDAV through httpd.conf files. Futhermore the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf is independent from Zimbra.

    @jummo Can you expand on why you think WebDAV is handled there? Do you have any solutions/ideas as to why WebDAV on Macintosh continues to lose its connection so that open/edit/save doesn't work?

    Also, why are there httpd.conf files in the Zimbra folder?

    Thanx in advance.

    No httpd.conf files as it is all handled by Jetty.

    Hmmm...Okay, so then the httpd.conf files are preconfigured.

    Then, moving forward, WebDAV continues to be broken when performing open/edit/save function. Zimbra WebDAV loses its connection and then proceeds to delete or overwrite the file depending on what application being used, ie, MS-Word, OpenOffice, etc.

    Zimbra support and developers have not produced a solution or fix for this in two years. I am being forced by my superiors to seek another solution despite my continued support for the product. I am considering trying to fold Alfresco into an iframe tab.

    But, (the all inclusive Zimbra administrators) we shouldn't have to go through these pains and lose an integrated component of the collaborative product.

    Any ideas?
