Sycronize or mount Webfolders served be Frontpage Server

Sycronize or mount Webfolders served be Frontpage Server

Post by Daniel Güllma » Thu, 06 May 2004 18:20:04

Hi folks,

I'd like to update the website of our working group on a Webserver with
Frontage Server Extension. Under MS Win it is no problem with Frontpage or
to mount the website as a webfolder. My question is: can I do this with a
linux tool? I tried sitecopy, but this works only with webdav....

Has anybody a nice suggestions...

Thanks and regards

1. Apache not serving from CIFS-mounted share, works if it's mounted as SMBFS

I'd like to mount a windows 2000 server fileshare on an linux/apache
server to do some basic web serving. The web server works fine and
shows other content that's stored locally just fine.

This works:
 mount -t smbfs -o username=smbusername,uid=apache,ro //server/share
but it complains that smbfs is deprecated and I should be using cifs.
For now, I'm using it anyway.

This seems to work:
 mount.cifs //server/share mountpoint/ -
but it won't serve actual files. It allows browsing of the directories
and shows the filenames. It does not return an error, it just does not
send the file. I have confirmed that user 'apache' can read the file
by logging in as that user and viewing the file.

I tried a telnet test, using GET and Host commands captured from
firefox's LiveHTTPHeaders extension, like this:
 telnet webserver 80
 GET /directory/filename.jpg HTTP/1.1
 Host: webserver

The result looks like this:
 HTTP/1.x 200 OK
 Date: Tue, 11 Mar 2008 15:51:07 GMT
 Server: Apache/2.2.4 (Unix) PHP/5.2.0

 Connection to host lost.
