Can't sync .htaccess files via webdav " You do not have permission."


I can’t sync a bunch of .htaccess files. All other files of the installation work, but for the .htaccess files I get a “You do not have permission.” error when I try to upload them to my owncloud instance via webdav.
Any ideas what to do about this?

Kind regards

Hi @coach1,
It looks like OwnCloud blocks these files, by default.

Since .htaccess files can be dynamically read and applied by an Apache server it makes sense why they would block these files from being uploaded, since I believe Apache web server is a requirement for running OwnCloud

Thanks a lot for the fast and helpful answer!
