nginx adding HTTP verbs, 405 method not allowed

Fabio Barone 6 років тому оновлено Eugene Pankov (Project coordinator) 6 років тому 8
Not sure if this is ajenti related but I tried a lot else :)

I created a web site in the ajenti panel. It's used to run owncloud. Owncloud supports WebDAV.

I can successfully run owncloud from the web interface, that works perfectly, so the basic config works. 

However, when I try accessing owncloud through a webdav client, I get "405 method not allowed", and the access.log file shows that the client is trying to access with the OPTIONS http verb, and nginx returns 405.

I tried some tutorials and added this entry to the instance's custom configuration:

location / {
   #more stuff
   dav_access user:rw group:rw all:r;
   dav_ext_methods PROPFIND OPTIONS;

This doesn't seem to work though, so I am wondering if nginx doesn't even get to the instance's custom config and rejects these additional methods before...

Any idea how I could enable these methods? Is there any such global config accessible through ajenti? 

Any additional hint/suggestion highly welcome.

Hi Fabio,

Put three dav_* directives into custom configuration of your Content entry, instead of general website's configuration.
Eugene, thank you for responding so fast!

Not sure I understood correctly:

In the Content section of that site's configuration I have now:
[^/]\.php(/|$) PHP FastCGI
URL pattern: [^/]\.php(/|$) Regex

and under "advanced", after your response, I added:

location [^/]\.php(/|$) {
dav_access user:rw group:rw all:r;
dav_ext_methods PROPFIND OPTIONS;

But it still does not work. Did I do something wrong here?
You don't need to add "location {" again when adding to a Content (location actually) custom configuration - Ajenti V puts the custom configuration inside the location { }. You can always verify the generated file by hand (/etc/nginx/conf.d/<website>.conf)

I removed the brackets and it's now only the dav_ directives there.

But I still get 405 in my client...
Don't know if this is still ajenti related, but is there anything else I could do?

Thank you again!
Here's the entry where I can see the 405 error:
This is from the log file of the custom nginx site: - - [26/May/2014:13:50:27 -0400] "OPTIONS /owncloud/remote.php/webdav/ HTTP/1.1" 405 166 "-" "davfs2/1.4.6 neon/0.29.6"
If your PHP app responds with any HTTP error, nginx will deliver it to client. The thing is that by default, NGINX doesn't forbid any HTTP verbs.
