I can't seem to get it to work for some reason.
As you can probably tell from the error_log extract below, i keep pulling up error 500s from my web server.
Here's my error log:

[Mon Jan 5 14:32:38 2004] [error] [client] The locks could not be queried for verification against a possible "If:" header. [500, #0]
[Mon Jan 5 14:32:38 2004] [error] [client] Could not open the lock database. [500, #400]
[Mon Jan 5 14:32:38 2004] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied: I/O error occurred. [500, #1]

Any help's appreciated

    Hi, I was having the same problem and several hours went by before I finally got it working.

    The directory specified in the DAVLockDB directive must have owner and group set to "www" :

    # excerpt from httpd.conf file
    DAVLockDB /Library/WebServer/DAVLock/DAVLock

    In Terminal, type:

    sudo chown www:www /Library/WebServer/DAVLock

    Also, and this was the REAL problem why I kept getting "Could not open the lock database", the directory must be writable by everyone:

    So I did this to make it work in Terminal:

    sudo chmod 777 /Library/WebServer/DAVLock

    And then it worked!. Hope this helps.
