The following requirements must be met on the server- and the client-side in order for WebDAV integration to be functional in Kentico CMS:
|•||Windows authentication must be enabled in IIS and the CMS must be configured to use this type of authentication.|
|•||If you are using an older version of IIS than 7.0, the Kentico CMS website must be installed in the root of the server. This is necessary because Microsoft Office submits configuration requests to the site root and requires the server to respond properly. If the website is not installed to the root, Microsoft Office will open its associated documents as read-only.|
|•||If you are using IIS 7.0 or higher, the website needn't be installed in the root - it can also be installed in a virtual directory.|
|•||WebDAV can be used only in Internet Explorer 6 or higher. No other web browsers are currently supported.|
|•||Client applications with WebDAV support for a particular file types need to be installed on the client machine. E.g. Microsoft Office 2003 or higher or Paint and Notepad in Windows 7 support editing of associated file types using WebDAV.|
|•||Matching (x86) or (x64) versions of both Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office must be installed. In other words, to be able to open documents using WebDAV in Internet Explorer (x86), Microsoft Office (x86) must be installed on the client computer. For Internet Explorer (x64), you need to have Microsoft Office (x64) installed.|
The Configuration for WebDAV topic explains how the required configuration can be achieved.
