For OwnCloud Enable WebDAV in Apache2.x on Windows Server


While installing “ownCloud” web services, the post installation checklist noted that WebDAV services did not appear to be enabled, check configuration instructions.  Consequently, the installation would not conclude.

I googled and found the above article and proceeded to enable each LoadModule and the Include for httpd-dav.conf file as shown in Step 1. Load WebDav in Apache Server, and Step 4. Restart the Apache Service.   It was unnecessary to perform  steps 2, 3, and 5 shown in the article.

STEP 1. Load WebDav In Apache Server. WebDAV comes with Apache server 2.x, you just need to enable it. Edit “%APACHE_PATH%/conf/http.conf“, un-comment the following load and include statements by removing the leading # hashtags.  Use Notepad++ to edit the file: http.conf

LoadModule alias_module modules/
LoadModule auth_digest_module modules/
LoadModule authn_file_module modules/
LoadModule dav_module modules/
LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/
LoadModule dav_lock_module modules/
LoadModule setenvif_module modules/

# Distributed authoring and versioning (WebDAV)
Include conf/extra/httpd-dav.conf
