I am observing a strange problem when trying to use
MKCOL WebDAV method with a specific url. I can
reproduce it with two WebDAV clients: Jakarta
Slides and the command-line client nd.
The problem: Invoking MKCOL method against Zope's
WebDAV server with an url ending with "title" fails.
Usind nd I can reproduce it with the following
nd -k http://localhost:8280/title
(From nd man page -k option sends MKCOL request)
This command fails with
Error: MKCOL failed, `Not Found'
If I change the command to end with anything different
than "title" it works:
nd -k http://localhost:8280/title1
and I can see in ZMI that title1 folder is created.
Some background: I initially noticed this behaviour
Plone (version 2.0.5) under Windows XP while I was
executing a large number of MKCOLs. I tried to reduce
the problem, so I installed on my personal FreeBSD
laptop Zope 2.7.8 for FreeBSD ports. I created a zope
instance and I configured in its zope.conf that http
server runs on 8080 port and webdav server runs on
I checked this problem agains Apache Httpd and mod_dav
and creating such a collection works. This makes me
think that Zope uses title suffix for internal aims.
My question is how I can workaround this problem?
