    Hi,
    How would I go about enabling WebDisk on my cPanel 11 Server?

    When I run the OSX WebDisk program (with or without SSL), it does nothing, and then complains about the certificate...


    Help!

    Thanks :D

    I'm not really familiar with webdisk, but I think it uses wedav ? Are you sure that the required ports are open on your server's firewall as well as you mac?

    Yeah, it's enabled on both my firewall, and the servers one.

    Does it need any other software installing? I'm using a plain cp11 server with apache 1.3 and php 5

    Hey,

    Make sure that the folder your web disk is accessing on the server actually exists! The same thing happened to me and I realised it was not working because the folder the user was connecting to did not exist.

    Works great Here

    I just used it and it works perfect so far ( knowcking on wood tho')
    I dragged a folder to it and drop it uploads it to the web folder on the server

    my 2 cents - no refunds given

    I have found out what's causing it - its IPTABLES

    How can I add 2077 and 2088 as an accepted port?

    Yep. Had to create the folder manually then login was possible. This folder is also accessible by anyone on the web to view contents. There should be a message here on the cPanel admin of this to add an index.html or at least password protect it.

    Also the file doesn't seem to update the first time thru when you setup params. Create_Web_Disk.vbs has this in it.

    (edited links to kill them)

    strURL = "ht tp://luvhimba .com:2077/" ' This is the URL to the WebDAV share.

    strDomain = "luvhimba .com" ' This is the name of the domain.



    Web Disk is going to be a handy tool I think but it's going to take some explaining for some I'm sure.
