WebDav on Apache under Mandrake 9.1

WebDav on Apache under Mandrake 9.1

Hi,

I run Mandrake 9.1 with Apache 2 and have added the Mandrake WebDav RPM. As far as I can see in the httpd.conf files the module has been included correctly. When I try and use a WebDav directive in the conf file though to activate WebDav for a directory the directive is not recognised, as if the module is not loaded.
1) How can I Check to see if the apache module has loaded correctly when the server is running?
2) What steps are required to ensure a module is loaded correctly?

Re: WebDav on Apache under Mandrake 9.1

I dont run/have WebDav I just have a method to find the informations I need from my Linux platform, what I usualy use is (as root)

#lsof -u `the_user_you_want_to_check`
ex: lsof -u apache
ex: lsof -u apache | grep -i "webdav"

and

#locate webdav

from this info I start reel chop around search man read scripts...


Hope this helps

Re: WebDav on Apache under Mandrake 9.1

Just thought of this did you try

rpm -ql WebDav
or (wich ever it is)
rpm -ql webdav

just in case /usr/sbin/lsof and locate did not reveal any new pointer/solution

just a 0.02 Euro/cent

Re: WebDav on Apache under Mandrake 9.1

Lets see..

httpd -L

See if 'WebDav' is listed in there. This will tell you easily if the module is working.

If not, view the 'error_log' (I'm not sure where mandrake puts this by default, on RH it's /var/log/httpd/error_log). If there were errors whilst loading the server, they will be listed here.

Re: WebDav on Apache under Mandrake 9.1

Very kind of you; I am unfortunately away from the office for a couple of weeks so on hold for a bit.

Only item of note from error log is that 'DAV' is not a recognised directive.

Re: WebDav on Apache under Mandrake 9.1

The next step I'd be doing is verifying the module lines in the configuration to ensure that they are actually being used.

This is someone in the httpd.conf (or one of it's subsiduary includes)..
