  • Small Business Panel 10.x for Linux/Unix


Web share cannot be accessed from Windows 7 using disk mapping method, because Windows 7 tries SSL-only access by default and cannot authenticate. 
Web share created on the Parallels Small Business Panel can be easily accessed from Windows XP using instructions at , however from Windows 7 (using instructions for Windows Vista) it does not work - Explorer keeps asking for password again and again and after some time produces error message "The folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another."


As possible solution for CentOS 5 try to do the following:

- add these directives to Apache config /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
BrowserMatch "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir" redirect-carefully
Header add MS-Author-Via "DAV"

- restart Apache:
# /etc/init.d/httpd restart

If Windows 7 still says "The folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another."  when you try to connect web share, restart system service 'WebClient' and try to connect web share again.
