I've set up a Ubuntu server with Apache 2. Instead of FTP, I'm using WebDAV to upload/download files and it works great. However, it's not possible to upload/download or modify .htaccess files, because the Apache server returns an 404 (forbidden) error.
How is it possible to enable working with .htaccess files like with any other file?
By the way: don't worry. The WebDAV access run over a WebDAV-only host to avoid security issues.
