Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am seeing this error in my error logs when I attempt to upload a file using webDAV to a folder:
Mon Dec 28 10:32:01 2009] [error] [client 163.153.xxx.xxx] The locks could not be queried for verification against a possible "If:" header. [500, #0]
[Mon Dec 28 10:32:01 2009] [error] [client 163.153.xxx.xxx] Could not open the lock database. [500, #400]
[Mon Dec 28 10:32:01 2009] [error] [client 163.153.xxx.xxx] (13)Permission denied: Could not open property database. [500, #1]
I noticed that my attempted upload did not write anything to the DAV directory (which I believe is what this error is referring to). The DAV directory is writable by the apache service. Can anyone shed some light on this? This is a SLES 10 server. Thanks.

Addendum to my answer to rweaver: I am seeing a reference to suexec in the apache logs. I happened to notice this after restarting apache: suexec mechanism enabled (wrapper: /usr/sbin/suexec2. Could that be imposing some sort of file restrictions I am unaware of? Thanks.
I use apache (and have for a long time) but i do not use WEBDAV. Seeing this information it says that apache is indeed
Given that and your permissions above, I would:
chgrp www DAV
which will change the owning group for DAV to be that of the the running apache server. The internals directories you show are already owned by username, wwwrun, and group, www.
