WebDAV Extension

WindowsThis is a Supported Download   |   Works With: IIS 7


The WebDAV Extension for IIS 7.0 enables Web authors to publish content easily and more securely to IIS 7.0 Web servers. Because WebDAV is deeply integrated with IIS 7.0, Web administrators and hosters can manage WebDAV settings using IIS 7.0 management and configuration tools.

Publish more securely and easily from IIS 7.0 Manager using standard protocols.

WebDAV for IIS 7.0 is based on the WebDAV extension to the HTTP standard, and integrates seamlessly with the new IIS 7.0 Manager to allow more secure publishing of content using HTTP over SSL.

Configure publishing on a per-site level.

WebDAV for IIS 7.0 can be enabled at the site level, allowing IT administrators to restrict WebDAV access to specific sites on a server.

Prevent lost updates due to overwrites.

WebDAV for IIS 7.0 supports both shared and exclusive locks to prevent lost updates due to overwrites.

Improve security and auditing through custom authorization support.

WebDAV for IIS 7.0 supports per-URL authoring rules, allowing administrators to specify custom WebDAV security settings on a per-URL basis. This fine-grained control gives administrators the ability to maintain one set of security settings for normal HTTP requests and a separate set of security settings for WebDAV authoring.
