Publishing error with Dreamweaver CS4

I am using Dreamweaver CS4 to create a new website.  I am using Webdav to publish the site to my Apache web server.  I have other users using the same software publishing to the same server with no problem.

When I try to upload my site, I get several files that do not upload.  I get the following message on the files that do not copy:

error occurred - an HTTP error occurred - cannot put file.jpg.  Access denied.  The file may not exist, or there could be a permission problem.  Make sure you have proper authorization on the server and the server is properly configured.

The rest of my files upload without a problem.  What's happening here?

Thanks.

Hi bkesting,

Is this problem limited to when you upload files in a batch or even if you try to upload the single file it won't take it?

Can you try to use FTP to load the file?

This happens even with single, specific files.

Okay, what happens if you try FTP?

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

Okay, it would have been nice to have that as a comparison.

What I think is going on is the WebDav permissions are messed up.  Can you reconfigure them?

My config for the site in question on my Apache server is as follows:


<Directory "/home/www/website">
     DAV On
     AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit
     Options None
     <Limit COPY DELETE LOCK MKCOL MOVE PATCH PROPFIND PROPPATCH PUT UNLOCK>
          AuthType Basic
          AuthName "Website WebDAV"
          AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/htusers
          Require valid-user
     </Limit>
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all
</Directory>
 
What should I change?

Open in new window

Hmmm,

That looks okay.  Is the site using Check-In/Check-Out?

Check In/Check out is currently disabled, but I believe it still did this when I had it enabled too.

Is this your server or a hosted one?

Sorry.

I cannot see a reason from the information given why DW would not put that file.  The only thing I can think of is some weird security setting or the file is corrupt or some other application is attempting to access that file at the same time and locking it.

I setup a new directory on my webserver and redid the configuration of the Directory in default.conf and now it works.  Same exact configuration, but something must have been wrong with the original.
