My team has a web application running on apache2 that allows us to download and upload files.
The document root is
Obviously we don't want anybody to see our work papers, so we created a /files directory (inside the root of the filesystem) The web application uploads files to that directory and download stuff from there.
What we want now, is to get webdav access to the /files directory, but with apache i was only able to set webdav access for directories inside the document root.
<Location /files> Dav On AuthType Basic AuthName "login please" AuthUSerFIle /var/www/passwd/passwords Require valid-users </location>
But this directive looks for a directory named files inside the document root
Is it possible to do that outside?
