It didn't create the table. The database kept empty.

I left this to 0.

I left host and port as they were. The main directory is e:\wwwroot

I started the server with server.py (in
D:\Python27\WebDAV\PyWebDAV\DAVServer) -D e:/wwwroot -m -c config.ini
The seems to work as I get a login screen in the browser.
Later on I changed the ini file:
# disable auth
noauth = 1
# Enable mysql auth
No login screen anymore but I got an error message "fshandler:get_data:
e:\wwwroot not found"
