MaxDB and WebDav

Hi !

I'm new on that forum, and I'm a french young IT student in a sandwich structure !

In my company, I have two different sites, and want to share relatively big files between the two sites. So I'm actually testing MaxDB and WebDav for the file sharing.

I've installed the maxdb 7.5 version with the webtools (webdav included). In my http explorer, webdav(http://myserver:9999/webdav?gui) is working well (no more 500 internal server error), but I don't know how to add a file in my webdav system.

Moreover, when I want to connect my webdav share as a network favorites, it doesn't work.

Can someone help me ??

For more questions, I'm available at my mail address, or by post reply !!

    Hi Jérémy,

    the WebDAV Explorer or webdav?gui is just a read only tool. To upload files you need another WebDAV client like the file explorer of Windows. For unix environments you will also find clients to upload files into a WebDAV server. There is also a command line tool from Apache.

    If you have an application you can use different HTTP libraries to create a PUT request and send the file content as body data (Perl, Python, Java etc.).

      Hi David

      your first screenshot shows that you have entered the user connect parameters not upper-case (there is no automatically conversion). Additionally you have to consider that there is a WebDAV table schema modification between build 10 and 19. So you should first upgrade your database to the current version.

      Best regards
