This page provides some troubleshooting tips on configuring a WebDAV client to work with Confluence pages and on general WebDAV functionality.

Adding WebDav Logging

There are two places to configure extra logging:

1. Confluence Logging
  1. In Confluence, add the following line in the Logging and Profiling console and set the logging level to DEBUG.: 


  2. Access Confluence using a Webdav client again, and replicate the authentication problem.
  3. Check the atlassian-confluence.log file in the confluence-home directory. Logging similar to the following will appear:

    2010-03-16 11:57:50,274 DEBUG [http-8000-10] [extra.webdav.servlet.ConfluenceWebdavServlet] service Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/6.1.7600, OPTIONS /plugins/servlet/confluence/default

    In this example, the Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir WebDav client version 6.1.7600 is displayed.

2. Tomcat Logging

You can use Tomcat's Valve Component to give you WebDAV accesses attempt.
