not sure if somebody posted yet, but I have the following problem:
in Confluence I'd like to open my attached Word document to edit and after authorisation, an empty(!) document comes up. I use Win XP.
Have you any suggestions why we meet this problem?
Thanks in advance!
There may be a number of reasons why this is not working for you. Firstly, there are a couple of registry settings in Windows XP that can prevent Office from opening documents via WebDAV.
Check the value of the 'OpenDocumentsReadWriteWhileBrowsing' registry key: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/870853
And the value of the 'UseBasicAuth' registry key: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841215
Unfortunately Microsoft has a poor track record of releasing WebDAV clients with a number of crippling bugs. Have a look at http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/webdav-redirector-list.html and http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/webfolder-client-list.html for a depressingly comprehensive list.
The particular problem you mention about context paths is unfortunately a bug in the Microsoft WebDAV client, which assumes that the root path of the server is WebDAV aware. :-(
