Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Reactivating oacs-dav with file-storage?

Posted by Antonio Pisano on
Another option might be to install some third party client/service that is more kind with the average webdav implementation. One example might be this (no endorsement, just found by quick googling and tested briefly on our WIP, successfully)

One could also find something that has the same level of transparence of a "real folder", as e.g. davfs2 for linux (this also seems to work with our code)

On my windows 7 vitual machine I could no connect the native webdav client not even with my owncloud, so it is some task indeed!

restricting clients is certainly an option.

Webdrive has historcally worked with oacs-dav on Windows, that might be an option as well. I haven't tested other clients.

Another thing we did was setup poatgresql based SFTP authorization from the openacs database with an external file storage location for the content repository and a trigger to add items to the database. You'd have to explore the security implications of that a bit.
