Configuring your WWW server with the PUT method

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) defines a PUT method as the mechanism allowing a WWW client to transfer a file to a WWW server. Amaya uses the W3C Reference Library implementation of HTTP to publish documents by means of this protocol method. As of today, not many WWW servers support the PUT method. Both the CERN server and Jigsaw support this method and it's possible to configure Apache too.

Configuring the Apache server for a PUT

The following may help those who are wishing to use the HTTP PUT method on an Apache-based server with PHP (v. 5) available.

This scenario supports access to a single server directory with a fixed password-list. Adaptation to use a proper user/password database is left as an exercise for the reader.

Thanks to CPK Smithies who provides this clue.
