Allowed file types for WebDAV publishing

Hi experts,

we are using the KM as a repository for training content in an e-learning solution. Authors publish their content using a webDAV interface. Sometimes the webDAV client cannot copy onto the km and that is because some file types are obviously not allowed for storing on the km.

I do not know if that is a km configuration, webDAV configuration or inherent to webDAV. The webDAV spec did not seem to hint that it would prevent any file type by default.

While the allowed file types seem perfectly reasonable for the moment - everything that could not be uploaded was not really inteded for productive use - we would need to make sure we at least know all the file types that are allowed so content provider can stick to such a list. Even better would be a possibility to configure the allowed file types.

Thanks a lot for your support!

Hi Michael,

Most file types can be stored and accessed in KM, provided there exists a valid mime type in the KM config. A standard set of mime types exist in the default config however you can also add additional mime types, have a look at

If this doesn't help then what types of files are you unable to access in KM? Or what errors do you get when you try to copy these files?
