How to proxy a webdav request


#1

All,

I am trying to proxy a PROPFIND request to a webdav server. So
essentially I am trying to send any requests made to
https://localhost/webdav to another server https://my.webdavserver.com.
I tried to do this by setting up a proxy like this:

location /webdav/ {
proxy_pass https://my.webdavserver.com/;
proxy_pass_header Server;
proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
}

This is not working as the PROPFIND request is being converted into a
GET by nginx when it sends the request to the proxied server. What am I
missing or doing wrong? Have been fighting with this for quite a while.
If anyone has any ideas, would really appreciate some help.

thanks
Ira

nginx does not change request method in this case. So the problem is not
here.
