Q&A

  1. Should I use <Limit> or <LimitExcept> sections?

  2. Both are equivalent for practical purposes. The <Limit> directive requires an explicit enumeration of all the methods being restricted, but a <LimitExcept> directive will automatically restrict methods that are added in the future.

  3. What are these strange entries in the error log?

  4. When Microsoft clients, such as Web folders, connect to your DAV server, they might initially look to see whether it supports FrontPage extensions. They do so by asking for specific files such as _vti_inf/shtml.exe and _vti_inf.html. You can safely ignore these entries.

  5. Does DAV support symbolic links?

  6. No, because they are not supported by all underlying platforms. There is a working group on WebDAV bindings, which will provide that functionality at the DAV protocol level. It can be found at http://www.webdav.org/specs/.
