dolphin in focal can't delete webdav directories running on focal's apache

Bug #1927742 reported by Adam Vodopjan

apache2 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

/etc/apache2/mods-available/setenvif.conf from the apache2 package has this:

    BrowserMatch " Konqueror/4" redirect-carefully

While dolphin is Konqueror/5 in focal. Trying to delete a directory on webdav dolphin just gets a http 301 redirect.

1) The release of Ubuntu you are using, via 'lsb_release -rd' or System -> About Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
Release: 20.04

2) The version of the package you are using, via 'apt-cache policy pkgname' or by checking in Software Center
  Installed: 2.4.41-4ubuntu3.1

3) What you expected to happen
Dolphin should be able to remove directories over webdav

4) What happened instead
Apache issues a redirect from prefix/dir to prefix/dir/ - user1 [07/May/2021:02:19:53 +0000] "DELETE /webdav/test HTTP/1.1" 301 578 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) KHTML/5.68.0 (like Gecko) Konqueror/5 KIO/5.68"

Dolphin doesn't follow the redirect hence nothing happens.

Hello Ross and thanks for this bug report. Did you actually verify that adding a

  BrowserMatch " Konqueror/5" redirect-carefully

line to setenvif.conf resolves the issue?

Anyway the file belongs to the packaging and not to the upstream source, so the fix belongs to Ubuntu. Waiting for your feedback on the " Konqueror/5" test I'm marking this bug report as Incomplete. Please change its status back to New after commenting back and we'll look at it again. Thanks!
