I have a Sitecore 8.2 site. WebDav is disabled on the CD as per


by disabling the Sitecore.WebDAV.config.

But the error logs are still full of this error:

7848 03:18:25 ERROR Application error.
Exception: System.NotSupportedException
Message: Unknown request type: PROPFIND
Source: Sitecore.Mvc
at Sitecore.Mvc.Helpers.WebHelper.GetRequestType(HttpContextBase httpContext)

at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStepImpl(IExecutionStep step)
at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)

Which I think is a WebDAV error. Do I need to do something else to disable WebDAV? Or os this error from something else?

  • There are a couple of WebDav handlers in web.config. The docs used to state to disable these too, but the latest doc does not mention this... you could try commenting these out too. – jammykam Aug 17 '19 at 3:14
