WebDAV Check-Out Retrieves Parsed PHP File Instead of Source

Posted on 2007-03-30

I have successfully set up a WebDAV directory with permission access and can connect with the credentials I provide.

The problem is, whenever I check out a PHP file, I receive the parsed version instead of the source.

The PHP files are parsed fine and can be accessed from a browser, but the problem occurs only when I try to get or check out a file via a WebDAV connection.

I am sure it's a directive or permissions issue, but I have no idea where to start looking.

Any help would be appreciated.

Guess this is a configuration issue of your webserver.  You need to configure your webserver so that for the webdav-part php is not enabled. Gues you will need to have a virtual host for webdav which has no interpretation of php enabled and the rest which has php enabled.
Unfortunal I can't tell you how to configure apache that way. Maybe the docu help http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/en/mod/mod_mime.html

Thanks hernst.

Surely the whole idea is for WebDAV to be able to serve files and allow you to connect and transfer them at the same time? Doesn't it defeat the purpose if I have to check out from a directory outside of the Docroot?

I'll examine the options, but hopefully someone will chime in with another idea :)
