How To disable WebDAV in IIS 6

IIS 6 does not come with WebDAV enabled, but you can easily look to see if it is on.

  1. Connect to the IIS manager.
  2. Manager -> Machine -> Web Services Extensions
  3. Check the window at right.  If WebDAV is not enabled, it should look like this:

IIS Config

If your IIS manager shows it as “Allowed”, you can disable it by clicking on it and clicking the “Prohibit” button to the left.

    That works great until the IIS service is stopped and started (restarted), at which point it decides to re-allow WebDAV.
