Enabling WebDAV for the Server Instance

You can use the Administration Server to enable WebDAV for the entire server. When you do so, the following directive is added to the magnus.conf file that loads the WebDAV plugin:

Init fn="load-modules" shlib="/s1ws6.1/lib/" 

Init fn="init-dav" LateInit=yes

The init-dav Init function initializes and registers the WebDAV subsystem.

ProcedureTo enable WebDAV globally

  1. Access the Server Manager of the server you want to enable WebDAV for.
