Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've got an winforms application and I want to implement auto updater to this application. I followed the instructions on the site and got everything setup right. (appupdater application) Now I tried a test and I'm getting the following error back from the appupdater: the remote server returned an error 405

I googled this and this is because my server isn't setup with the right access. I'm using a wampserver and in the apache httpd.conf I added the following lines so my directory is allowed for access:

<Directory "c:/wamp/www/updater/V11/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

    AllowOverride all

#   onlineoffline tag - don't remove
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from

But I'm still getting the same error back. I can find information for the IIS configurations, but not for apache.

edit: I'm still getting the error, I opened the error log file of apache and I see the following -> "PROPFIND /updater/V11/ HTTP/1.1" 405 238 the updater component is using the HTTP-DAV.

edit2: it seems that nobody had this kind of situation.

There's your problem:

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from

Change to:

Order Allow,Deny
Deny from none
Allow from all
