Greenhopper behind IIS: 405 on PUT requests

I configured my IIS-server (IIS 7) to forward requests to JIRA, as outlined in in this procedure:

It all works, except in the rapid board, when I move columns around I get 405-errors on PUT requests (IIS logging below).

I think my problem is similar to this question, which was never answered:

I've tried a few things, like disabling webdav in the web.config, but no luck so far. Anyone has an idea on how to solve this?

Ok, fixed it. Disabling webdav did seem to be the solution. Only, I had tried to disable it by adding modules|remove in a web.config file, but that was aparently not the correct approach. Instead, I now disabled it for the whole server by modifying the applicationHost.config file as described here:


It is the module and the handler WebDav which posed problem. 

 It thus should be disabled in the web.config of your application insystem.webServer with a pool in integrated: 


    <remove name="WebDAVModule"/>
<handlers accessPolicy="Read, Execute, Script">
    <remove name="WebDAV" />


I just recently ran into WebDAV causing me problems with the Application Links between JIRA and Confluence giving me 405 errors.  I've been looking for an answer for two weeks now and I finally found it with this solution.  Unlike what Gaetan said, I found that I could get away with adding this config to the system.webServer section of the web.config file just as specified.  I'm running IIS8 on Windows 2012.  Thanks for the solution!!!!!
