Web Publishing using HTTP PUT

Many web content authoring programs include built-in web publishing capability. In some cases this involves installing proprietary extensions on the Virtual Server (e.g. Microsoft FrontPage), other packages use the HTTP "PUT" method, but usually publishers will provide support for simple FTP. It is unnecessary, however, to rely on your web content authoring program to publish to your site. You can compose your web content using any program and then FTP the content to your Virtual Server manually.

Besides specifying the well-known GET and POST methods familiar to CGI programmers on the World Wide Web, the HTTP specification also describes the lesser-known PUT method, useful for uploading files to the web server from PUT-capable HTML editors such as Netscape Navigator Gold, Amaya, or AOLpress. When used properly, the HTTP PUT method provides a useful alternative to FTP uploading or third-party server extensions (i.e. Microsoft FrontPage). The HTTP PUT method is easily integrated into the Blue Reef Virtual Server web service by means of a special CGI program.

Installation and Configuration
You will need to download the White Paper, Web Publishing using HTTP PUT. This White Paper discusses the changes that must be made to the web server configuration files in order to use the HTTP PUT method. A detailed explanation describing how to implement the HTTP PUT method for multiple users is also presented. This explanation may be especially useful to you if you are taking advantage of the Virtual Hosting capabilities of your Virtual Server.
