Enable and configure web-disk

This is documentation for an outdated product. See the current documentation


Web-disk is a way to access the user's directory using the webDAV protocol. This protocol allows you to add to the user's computer directory from a remote server as a separate disk. The user can use Web-disk as an alternative to connecting to the server via FTP. Files available to multiple users can be stored on a web disk and edited together.

Enable a web-disk 

The apache mod_dav module is used. Apache ITK must be enabled.

To allow your users to use a web-disk: 

  1. Go to Web-server settings → Web-disk.
  2. Enable the option Enable Web-disk.
    3. Enter the Maximum post size that can be processed by the proxy module Nginx (client_max_body_size) in B, KiB, MiB. Eg., "100 MiB", "2000 KiB". The default value is "0 B", the post size is not checked.

         4. Click on Ok.

Configure the web-disk 

To configure a web-disk for the user:

  1. Log in as the user and go to WWW → Web-disk.
  2. Enter the Directory (the path is relative to the user home directory) where the data will be saved. The user home directory is specified by default.
  3. Click on Ok.

How the link is generated:

  1. If nginx-proxy is disabled the link will be generated as follows: "https:///webdav/".
  2. If nginx-is enabled the link will be generated as follows: "https:///webdav/"

The link is displayed on the User Dashboard in ISPmanager.

To enable the web-disk on Windows, you first need to allow for auth_basic authentication.
