WebDAV file access notes

From MediaWiki.org
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Short term:

  • Can use webdav to access the existing file/web server tree
    • HTTP auth and/or IP limitations on server
  • Should be possible to switch over access mode per-repo or per-wiki without breaking compat
  • If server doesn't respond, fail out quickly and gracefully!
  • May be necessary to reduce the frequency we actually hit the backing files

Long term:

  • Failover/clustering/etc needs?
