Design and technology, they’re two great tastes that go great together.

I design, plan and develop online applications for big and small outfits. My true love is problem solving, from tracking down that weird segfault to whipping up a JavaScript powered layout tool. I currently spend most of my time in (Java|Coffee)Script, Ruby and Clojure but care more about getting things done than engaging in linguistic holy wars.

comment gpg not enough entropy!
I tried this as root and got "can't open /dev/random: Permission denied" any thoughts on that?

comment WebDAV on CentOS - getting 403 error when attempt to upload
This pretty much nailed the problem. I switched on WebDAV on a subdomain without mod_rewrite and everything worked as expected.

Thanks for this, worked like a champ. Now I need to busy myself making a shell script to automate the process.

comment WebDAV on CentOS - getting 403 error when attempt to upload
Okay - i've narrowed it down to some sort of permissioning issue or conflict. I created a non-protected directory on a subdomain (open to everyone) and am able to upload just peachy.

Tried it. I created a .DAV folder in my WebDAV folder, chowned to apache:apache and even chmod to 0777 still no luck. Tried creating a .dav folder as well just in case its a case issue.

BTW - not using .htaccess to set directives, using vhost.conf (plesk)

I added a .DAV dir to the top level (httpdocs) where .htaccess is and chowned to apache:apache. Still getting 403 error.

So.. not clear why I'm getting a 403. I can read files from the dir and also delete them (!), but I cannot PUT them.

I don't see anything in error_log specific to web_dav.
